Keto Tangy Tilapia

This tangy tilapia is a simple and quick yet mouth-wateringly delicious dinner meal. Beautifully tender fish filets are smothered in a creamy and flavorsome cheese sauce that turns golden-brown and crunchy in the broiler, laced with the fresh tang of lime juice to cut through the fat. Pair with your favorite side salad or veggies for a meal ideal for any occasion. We recommend asparagus seasoned to your taste.

Keto Tangy Tilapia Second

Fish is one of the all-around healthiest and most keto-friendly foods, and tilapia is no exception. This fish is an excellent source of protein and is rich in a cocktail of beneficial nutrients: niacin, phosphorus, selenium, and potassium, as well as vitamin B12. The savory cheese sauce blends parmesan, mayonnaise, and butter with a dash of lime juice and an array of delicious herbs. Feel free to substitute lime with lemon, and if you’re watching your sodium intake, then using salt-free butter and omitting the salt results in a meal just as delicious.

Altogether, one of these tangy tilapia filets will come to approximately 191 calories, boasting 8g of fat and 28g of protein. They match wonderfully with asparagus, which brings a fresh crunch to this tangy, savory dish. For a quick and simple evening meal that’s piled high with healthy nutrients and tastes incredible, why not give this delicious and tangy cheese-sauce tilapia a try?

Season with salt and pepper to your taste, and enjoy!
