My Favorite Low-Carb and Keto Oven-Baked Fish Dinners
Fish cooks quickly when it’s baked or roasted, which makes My Favorite Low-Carb and Keto Oven-Baked Fish Dinners perfect for spring when so many people are eating more fish. Use Recipe Round-Ups for more low-carb round-ups like this one!
I certainly didn’t start out the week planning to give you Low-Carb and Keto Oven-Baked Fish Dinners for my weekly round-up of low-carb recipes to try over the weekend! But after I posted Easy Low-Carb Baked Mayo-Parmesan Fish I was struck by all the reasons that baked or roasted fish is a great idea for spring! First, so many people are eating more fish this time of year, either for Lent or because they want lighter meals with bathing suit season approaching. Second, nights are mostly still cool in the spring so you don’t mind turning on your oven for a tasty fish dinner that cooks super-quickly. And finally, roasted or baked fish is the ultimate in easy! Nobody minds an easy dinner when there’s more daylight and you have a chance to spend time outside after dinner, do they?
When I started looking through the Seafood Recipes for favorites that were cooked in the oven, I was pretty surprised at how many favorites I had! And quite a few of these fish recipes are impressive enough that I’ve made them for guests. I’m including a couple of ideas using shrimp even thought I decided that I just couldn’t fit the word shellfish into the post title, and I also included some quick sheet pan meals with shrimp and salmon that I’ve really enjoyed.
And there are a few here from the very early days of my blog, so I hope the older photos are still good enough to show you how tasty they are. I’m also a fan of using a toaster oven when you want to baked or roast without heating up the kitchen, and that’s a trick that works well for some of these fish recipes if you’re not cooking for too many people. Enjoy some fish dinners everyone, because you know we all should be eating more fish, right?
Use Touch to Tell When Your Fish is Done:
All my fish dinner recipes have a suggested cooking time. But the best way to tell when fish is done is by touch. When the fish feels firm (but not hard) to the touch when you press on it with your fingertip or a fork, you’ll know it’s done. If you use this system regularly you’ll get better at judging the degree of doneness that appeals to you the most.
Side Dishes for Low-Carb and Keto Fish Dinners:
I’m calling these fish dinners, so I want to give you some side dish ideas and I’d love Easy Cheesy Baked Keto Cauliflower, Low-Carb Spicy Cilantro Peanut Slaw, or Lemony Green Beans as a side dish for any of these meals!
This Foil-Baked Salmon with Pesto and Tomatoes is always a wow, even when it’s not fresh basil season and you’re using pesto from a jar! If you prefer, for Keto you can cut the tomatoes even thinner to save a few more carbs!
Have you tried the uber-healthy fish variety called Barramundi? My niece Kara and I swooned over this Low-Carb Roasted Barramundi with Tomato and Olive Relish. In fact after made it, Kara even made it at home before I managed to get the recipe on the blog!
This Roasted Asian Salmon and Green Beans Sheet Pan Meal has been uber-popular on the blog, so if you haven’t made this yet, what are you waiting for?
I love the frozen Mahi Mahi fillets from Costco, and they’d be perfect for this Pan-Seared and Roasted Mahi Mahi with Mediterranean Salsa and Feta.
For those who like things a bit spicy, this Sriracha-Spiced Shrimp and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal does take a bit longer to marinate the shrimp for a few minutes but this is still so easy and tasty!
This Baked White Fish with Onions, Peppers, Olives, and Feta has so many good flavors going on, and this is a great choice if you’re cooking for someone who might like a fish dish that doesn’t taste too much like fish, if you know what I mean by that!
I originally used Tilapia for this delicious Low-Carb Almond and Parmesan Baked Fish, but now I’d use one of the other fish varieties recommended in the recipe. And please don’t dismiss this one because of the old photo because it’s so tasty!
Everyone likes a dinner that’s quick and easy, right? And this Quick and Easy Low-Carb Pecan-Crusted Dijon Salmon is also ultra delicious!
I’m pretty sure this Low-Carb Baked Halibut with Sour Cream, Parmesan, and Dill Topping will be a hit with anyone you make it for! Use any thick mild white fish fillets if halibut is too much of a stretch for the budget!
Roasted Salmon and Asparagus Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette is perfect for a light meal!
Roasted shrimp cooks even more quickly than roasted fish and I love the interesting flavors in this Spicy Roasted Shrimp with Garlic, Sumac, and Aleppo Pepper!
Easy Spice-Rubbed and Roasted Fish Fillets is one of those oldie-but-goodie recipes that could really use new photos! (So many bad photos on good recipes; so little time!) I hope you don’t let that stop you from making this tasty fish with New Orleans flavors!
Okay, I admit that Brussels Sprouts aren’t exactly a spring veggie, but you can still get them in the stores and personally I’d enjoy this Low-Carb Roasted Asian Shrimp and Brussels Sprouts Sheet Pan Meal any time of year!
It’s the use of pine nuts that makes this Low-Carb Baked White Fish with Pine Nut, Parmesan, and Basil Pesto Crust such a wow for me! Who else is crazy over pine nuts? They’re pricey but I buy a big bag at Costco and keep them in the freezer, and use them sparingly for a treat!
You can’t go wrong with salmon and asparagus, right? And this Roasted Lemon Salmon and Asparagus Sheet Pan Meal is easy and delightfully lemony for my lemon-loving tastebuds!
And of course, Easy Low-Carb Baked Mayo-Parmesan Fish is the new recipe that got me thinking about how perfect baked and roasted fish recipes were for spring, and this is absolutely a MUST TRY recipe, especially for people who might not like the flavor of plain fish all that much.
