Keto Friendly Garlic Parmesan Crusted Fish like Tilapia or Cod
It takes just a few minutes to get this Parmesan crusted white fish recipe together for dinner. What makes our recipe for baked white fish so delicious are the smoky spices that are added to the Parmesan crust mixture. Paprika is our favorites spice but you can use a combination of chili powder, chipotle or smoked paprika if you want. Add a crisp and crunchy salad to this fish and you have a fabulous lower carb fish dinner that will leave you satisfied and without the carb-loading guilt! You can use different cheese if you want to. So you don’t have to follow the recipe exactly, as there’s many different possibilities. We love sharp cheddar, swiss and gouda too.
