Lemon Garlic Butter Fish Filets

Lemon Garlic Butter Fish Filets is a super easy recipe that makes a mild white fish sing with flavor. This is one of Jimmie’s favorite ways to eat fish and mine, too! I don’t broil it, but rather slowly roast it to keep the meat flaky and tender. Plus, we love the crispy edge that it gets from cooking it this way.

Preparing fish this way makes it wonderfully ketogenic and low carb. Serve if with a side of riced cauliflower and roasted brussels sprouts or green beans.

Depending on the number of filets you’re preparing, you can halve or double the ingredients.

I can’t stress enough how delightful this fish tastes. The recipe works great with whatever your favorite seafood – shrimp, scallops, fish, even lobster. However, shortening the baking time for the shrimp and scallops is necessary. The lobster should be broiled for 4-7 minutes (depending on size) or until the flesh is white and the shell bright red.

Happy eating, y’all!
