Pork Panko AIP Recipes
Posted on June 04 2020
We at POTG first heard about Bacon’s Heir’s products at PaleoFX 2017, the world’s biggest paleo conference. Their “Pork Clouds” pork rinds snacks were being sampled. At the time, we had no idea about their other product, “Pork Panko” which would eventually become their best seller.
Yeah, I know what you’re thinking… “panko is a bread product!” However, the geniuses at Bacon’s Heir were able to figure out how to create a keto-friendly, low carb, grain-free version using only pork rinds! According to Bacon’s Heir, Pork Panko is “ideal for breading fried chicken, or any recipe that calls for breadcrumbs. Simply substitute 1 to 1 in any recipe for breadcrumbs.” That’s pretty darn cool.
Pork Panko & the AIP Lifestyle
Pork Panko is perfect for the AIP lifestyle. Not only is it grain-free, it’s a nutrient dense, unprocessed, whole food! Even more, it provides a much sought-after texture not easily found on a restrictive, allergen-friendly diet! It’s the perfect way to add flavor, fun, and extra nutrition to an endless amount of dishes! The cherry on top? It’s keto!
Pork Panko Recipes
Chicken Katsu with Tonkatsu Sauce
- 1 lb. Chicken breast
- 1 cup Pork Dust
- ½ cup Avocado Oil
- 1 cup Coconut aminos
- 4 oz Apricots
- 4 oz Dates
- 3 oz Cabbage
- 3 oz Carrots
- 1 tbl. Ginger
- ½ cup Scallions
- 1 T. avocado oil
- 1 tbl. coconut aminos
- 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
Cut chicken breasts into thin slices and pound thin in between two sheets of parchment with a meat mallet. Season the breasts with the sea salt. Coat the breasts in pork dust. Heat avocado oil in a non stick pan and fry the cutlets on both sides until golden brown. Cut into strips.
Bring 3 cups of water to a boil and add dates and apricots. Simmer until softened. Strain out fruit, and reserve 1 cup of the cooking water. Put coconut aminos, dates and apricots and 1 cup of the cooking water to the bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth.
Slaw: shred the cabbage, peel and julienne the carrots on a mandoline, thinly slice the scallions and finely mince the ginger. Toss these in a bowl with a tablespoon of avocado oil, a tablespoon of coconut aminos and 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar. Sprinkle a little sea salt over.
To plate: lay a small pile of slaw on each plate. Top with strips of chicken katsu and drizzle with the tonkatsu sauce.
Ginger Pork Dust Crusted Salmon over Baby Bok Choy with Shiitake Broth
- 1 lb Salmon filet, cut into 4 portions, skin removed
- 1/2 cup Pork Dust
- 2 tbl. finely minced fresh ginger
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 8 oz bok choy
- 8 oz shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 4 cups beef bone broth
- 1 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
- 2 tbl. chopped scallions, plus 1 tbl. more for garnish
- 2 tbl. coconut aminos
Wash the baby bok choy thoroughly and cut into bite sized pieces.
Pour the beef bone broth into a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add the 1 tsp. fresh ginger, scallions and coconut aminos. Submerge the bok choy in the broth and simmer 5 minutes until tender. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate and set aside. Add the sliced shiitake mushrooms to the broth and cook 3-4 minutes until tender. In the meantime, mix the pork dust with the 2 Tbl. finely minced ginger. Preheat oven to 400F. Lay the salmon filets on a parchment lined sheet tray. Season lightly with sea salt. Divide the pork dust mixture evenly over the 4 filets and pat on to adhere. Bake for 5-8 minutes until just cooked through.
To serve, lay out 4 large shallow bowls. Divide the bok choy among the bowls, ladle the hot shiitake broth over each bowl, dividing evenly, and top each bowl with a piece of ginger crusted salmon. Garnish with some more freshly sliced scallions.
