Fish in Lemon Butter Caper Sauce

A Keto fish recipe

High fat has never been easier to achieve than with a lemon butter caper sauce poured over your favourite fish fillet. This recipe uses a generous amount of butter and will help you hit all your fat macros. Fish also lends itself beautifully to this sauce since it’s a nice light meat and the lemon and fresh parsley help cut through the richness of the butter. Even this is a rather simple dish it’s extremely ‘posh’ and perfect when having friends over for dinner.

Cutting the carbs

This recipe has about 7 grams of net carbs and depending on your macros and goals it might be on the higher side. The best way to reduce these carbs is to drop the onions and garlic quantities by half. I think since I’m more of a cook by intuition kind of person I might have had more onion and garlic than needed to have a more flavourful sauce. So you can adjust those to suit your requirements. You could even skip them completely and still have a nice tasty sauce.
