Keto Parsley Cod with Walnut Zoodles [Easy Low-Carb Lunch Recipe]

How does parsley-crusted cod drizzled with velvety brown butter placed atop a bed of buttery zucchini noodles and roasted walnuts sound? If your mouth is watering, you will love this elegant dish. This super tasty dish is an absolute winner. It’s also packed full of important vitamins and minerals, making it an excellent choice for a satisfying and healthy dinner.

Making this dish involves a few steps, but you will thank yourself for going to the trouble. You start by making the zucchini noodles and chopping the parsley and walnuts. Then you’ll lightly roast the nuts in a skillet, and mix the parsley with the cheese to make the coating for the fish. Remove the walnuts from the pan to coat the fish, then fry the fish to perfection with butter.

When the fish is ready, give the zoodles a quick fry in the same pan that you cooked the fish. Then the fun part begins. This dish looks super impressive on the plate. Create a bed of zoodles and place the fish on top, followed by a drizzle of brown butter and roasted walnuts. Then serve it up and enjoy!

Beyond its aesthetic appeal and remarkable taste, we love the balance of nutrients in this dish. The ingredients provide a great source of essential vitamins and minerals that contribute to your overall well-being. This means you can enjoy this sophisticated meal guilt-free!

      That’s fair – I don’t think they’re the best texturally, but they are great for a quick/easy vegetable to have in a meal. My favorite way to prep them is by salting them and pressing them to remove moisture.

    • @virdinbarzey3805 on December 30, 2023 at 2:32 am

      @RuledMe  Yup. That’s the major issue. The texture. I tried getting rid of all of the moistur, and that’s not great either. I agree and prefer to prepare it as a side vegetable. BTW, we like 👍 your channel. Thanks.
