Two Fish Recipe Ideas : Low Carb Choices

I recently posted 'How to Choose the Best Fish for Your Health' it was a popular read, and you can find it here if you've not read it! It seems many of us enjoy turning to fish when planning our weekly menu's, so I am sharing two recipe suggestions that you may like to try.

Herby fishcakes with courgette/zucchini salad

These delicate fishcakes are simply made with white fish, onion, herbs, lightly fried, and served with a fresh ribboned courgette/zucchini salad. To bump up the healthy fats, why not add a dollop of sour cream to the fishcakes and some sliced avocado to the salad.
Courgette/Zucchini salad
280 g courgette/zucchini
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 red chili pepper, or a pinch of chili flakes
1 garlic clove, grated
salt and pepper, to taste
600 g white fish fillets fillets (For example cod, haddock or halibut)
1 (110 g) medium white onion, roughly chopped
7 g fresh mint, roughly chopped
7 g fresh cilantro, or fresh parsley, stalks and leaves, roughly chopped
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil or ghee
i) Any white fish is suitable, such as haddock, cod or coley. If you're catering for a crowd, buy frozen white fish and defrost them overnight.
ii) If using previously frozen fish fillets, squeeze out any juices before adding to the food processor bowl.
iii) Cooking time will vary, depending on the thickness of the fish cakes; thinner fishcakes will require less time than thicker ones.

Creamy Fish and Broccoli Casserole

This creamy low carb/keto white fish casserole with fresh broccoli, greens, and the briny bite of capers makes a delicious dinner. It's an easy all-in-one family-friendly casserole.

Serves 4
1 tbsp butter, for greasing baking dish
3 tbsp olive oil
450 g broccoli, small florets
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
110 g scallions (spring onions), finely chopped
2 tbsp small capers
650 g white fish (cod, haddock, halibut), cut into serving-sized pieces
1 tbsp dried parsley
300 ml heavy (double) whipping cream
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
85 g butter, cut into thin, equal slices
For serving
140 g leafy greens (optional)
This is a wonderful all-in-one dish that can be varied in many different ways. Use salmon instead of white fish or perhaps fresh or frozen tuna fish. Use Brussels sprouts, asparagus, zucchini (courgette) or mushrooms instead of broccoli.
