Keto, Spice & Everything Nice.
Sometimes, you just want to break the regular chicken or steak dinner streak for something more delicate and light. Cod is an extremely soft and adaptable fish. It will take on the flavors of what you cook it in and work really well with it. You can make cod taste sweet, spicy, savory, light, creamy or nutty depending on the rest of the ingredients. The fact that cod is so customizable makes it perfect to serve to a crowd as you can really make it taste however you’d like! Most people who aren’t too keen on fish still enjoy cod!
While fresh cod is always great, you can likely find frozen cod in almost any grocery store. Frozen cod works just as great as fresh cod and, it is a good ingredient to always have on hand. When you are ready to use the cod, simply take it out of the freezer and place the wrapped fillets in a bowl of room temperature water. They will thaw quickly in the water, giving you perfect cuts of fish, ready to cook!
One of our favorite ways to prepare cod is with chili pepper and lime juice- baked chili lime cod! The combination of the two is perfect- it’s fresh and hot with a hint of sweetness. The robust flavors of the fish are also combined with the delicate and airy coconut flour we coated it in. It is the perfect blend of all different flavors- sweet, tangy and spicy all in one dish!
This keto recipe came out perfect the very first time we made it and looked pretty impressive (especially for a dinner that took less than 30 minutes to make!). Cod is very low in fat but high in protein. There are 20g of protein in each 4 oz. portion of cod! That means that it is great to help meet your keto macros for protein but you may need to make a side dish to increase the fat level. Just remember to pick a side that is still low carb!
We paired this cod with a full fat creamed spinach to up the fat content in this dinner. The spinach has a nice subtle taste that let’s the chili lime cod still be the center focus of the meal. However, it is still super creamy and delicious, adding fat and a new flavor to your dinner! It is also pretty easy to make so you can whip up this tasty side while perfecting your cod. The chili lime cod alone (with all the delicious ingredients) will amount to 5g of Fat , 37g of Protein and 3g of Carbs. Yum!
