Who Needs Taco Shells When you Have Fathead Shells
Conventional taco shells are made with corn flour, which are heavy on the carbs and aren't keto-friendly.
That's where fathead dough comes in! Delicious, cheesy dough that's a perfect keto substitute for pizzas, flatbreads, sandwiches, and even taco shells!
Don’t be afraid of the fathead crust. It will seem like a gooey blobby mess at first, but just keep kneading and folding the dough, and it will quickly get all incorporated into a beautiful dough!
Once you get the hang of making it, it will become a go-to blank palette for you to put a wide array of toppings on!
Keto Fish Taco Shells
Let's go over the basics of making Fathead crust. First, gather your ingredients.
Melt the Cheeses Together for the Fathead Crust
Microwave the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in bowl for 90 seconds, stirring at each 30 second interval.
You want to make sure the cheeses are fully melted.
Make the Fathead Crust Dough
Add in the remaining ingredients and knead the mixture with your hands until combined and a dough forms.
Make sure the Fathead dough is completely incorporated and mixed together so it will be easier to bake and fold into taco shells.
The dough should look like the picture below.
Form the Fathead Crust into Taco Shells
Roll out the dough in between two layers of parchment paper. You are aiming for a shape that is 16 inches by 8 inches wide.
Use an inverted 4-inch bowl to cut circles into the dough.
Keep gathering any remaining dough and roll out it out again to get more shells if needed. You should end up with 8 circles.
Transfer the circles to a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at 400°F for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
While the dough is still hot from the oven, gently fold the dough in half to form taco shell shape.
The “Fish” in Keto Fish Tacos
This recipe uses cod, but any mild white fish will work.
Feel free to add some cayenne powder to your cod for an extra kick or bake the fish with some scallions and jalapeños on top!
Bake at 400°F for about 15 minutes
Make the Bang Bang Sauce
While the fish is baking, prepare the Bang Bang Sauce.
Put It All Together
Assemble the Keto Fish Tacos by adding the Bang Bang sauce to the bottom of the fathead shells, followed by the cabbage, fish, avocado, jalapenos, more sauce, and then the cilantro and scallions.
The taco shells will be sturdy – so load them up to your heart's desire!
