SPICES TO USE IN FISH MARINADE?

A mixture of salt, cumin, cayenne, black pepper and lime juice for a couple of hours to give it those amazing authentic flavors. To give it that extra kick, you could also add a bit of spice to the egg white powder.

HOW LONG SHOULD I FRY MY FISH?

Depending on how big the pieces of fish you’re frying, about 30 seconds to 1 minute should do it.

CAN I FRY THIS FISH IN AN AIR FRYER?

No, it does not work. for it to deep fry correctly, get crispy and bubbly, you need to submerge the entire piece of fish coated with the egg white powder (or whey protein isolate) in hot oil.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH THESE KETO FISH TACOS?

I recommend serving either this chicken fajita salad or a small bowl of keto taco soup.
