Low Carb Fish Piccata

Posted in : Fish, Keto, Main Dishes, Paleo, Uncategorized, Whole30 on by : Marisol Chancellor

After almost two weeks of indulgent vacation, I am back in my kitchen, It feels so good! I have so many ideas for new recipes, I just hope I have enough time to make them all. Summer is not over yet so, my kids are the ones ruling my time these days but, motivation is here.

I went to Aldi’s in Wichita Falls (they don’t have HEB but that’s another sad story) and they had a picture of beautifully cooked tilapia fillets over the seafood section. I don’t know what the dish was but It was garnished with parsley and lemon wedges, I immediately thought “I am making fish piccata as soon as I get home.” So, here it is!  

This dish is so easy to make it doesn’t need much explanation. 

The fish is seasoned with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Then, seared it until brown and cooked through. The sauce is made with butter, garlic, capers, lemon juice, and parsley. Sooo delicious!! 

Pure magic! Such simple ingredients, yet they make this fish taste so incredible. Enjoy!
