For six years this tasty recipe for Low-Carb Almond and Parmesan Baked Fish was stuck back in the recipe archives without a photo.  When I finally got around to cooking it for photos, I remembered how this recipe produced some of the the best-tasting fish I’d ever had. When I told my nephew Jake about the recipe he was skeptical, but when we ate some with the homemade tartar sauce, Jake was completely amazed at how good it was.

I did originally make this with Tilapia, but now I’d prefer another firm white fish like Snapper, Catfish, Barramundi, Cod, or Haddock. The almond meal and finely grated Parmesan makes a crispy coating on the fish that’s also gluten-free and South Beach Diet friendly, and I’m betting this recipe will be a hit with just about anyone who tries it.

How to Make Low-Carb Almond and Parmesan Baked Fish:

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe.)

  1. I used melted butter to dip the fish in so the coating would stick.
  2. In a shallow bowl mix together the almond meal, finely grated Parmesan, garlic powder, pepper, and fish rub. I highly recommend Szeged Fish Rub (affiliate link). I like it so much I buy it in six-packs from Amazon.com.)
  3. Put the butter in one bowl and the almond/parmesan mixture in another bowl; then dip the fish first in the butter and then in the almond meal mixture.  I sprinkle the almond mixture over and press it on with a fork.
  4. Costco had huge pieces of fish so that one in the back left corner didn’t get too much coating, but it was still good. 
  5. Bake 20 minutes or until the fish is barely firm to the touch and the coating is browned and crispy on the edges.
  6. Serve hot, with Ultra Easy Double Dill Diet-Friendly Tartar Sauce.

This Low-Carb Almond and Parmesan Baked Fish is easy and delicious.

Ingredients

  • 4 white fish filets, thawed if frozen (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup almond flour

  5. Dip each fish filet in butter, turning to coat both sides, then into almond mixture.
  6. Try to get as much of the almond mixture to stick to the fish as you can. (I pressed it down with a fork.)
  7. Bake 20 minutes, or until fish is firm to the touch and coating is turning golden brown.
  8. The baking time will depend on the thickness of the fish, so watch it carefully.

Notes

This recipe will work best with pieces that are at least 1/2 inch thick. I'd probably use Almond Flour (affiliate link) for this recipe because I keep it in the freezer but coarser-ground almond meal with also work. I use Szeged Fish Rub (affiliate link) for all my recipes made with fish!

We ate this with homemade tartar sauce, I would eat this with my homemade Ultra Easy Double Dill Diet-Friendly Tartar Sauce, but it would be tasty with any type of tartar sauce.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Low-Carb Almond and Parmesan Baked Fish should be good for most types of low-carb or low-glycemic eating plans. The South Beach diet doesn’t recommend butter, but in this recipe you’re only eating the small amount of butter that sticks to the fish, and I would eat this for any phase of The South Beach Diet. You can use a yogurt spread or trans-fat free margarine if you prefer.
