Crock Pot New England Style Seafood Chowder

As with a low-carb version of a Bacon Chicken Chowder I posted earlier this year, the recipe presented herein meets the culinary definition of a chowder in that it consists of vegetables and protein in a creamy broth thickened with a roux (actually in this case, a slurry).  However, this is a far more traditional

Thai Monkfish


My spiritual home is Thailand and I just adore Thai food.  I’ve put this lovely recipe together to combine my love of the flavours of traditional Thai cuisine with my favourite fish, Monkfish.  It’s an incredibly healthy dish and takes just 5 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to cook in a steamer.  At only 3.8 carbs per serving, this is a delicious lunch dish or light evening supper.


Oriental Monkfish


This lovely, light dish is perfect for a lunch or a midweek supper.  It is incredibly tasty and satisfying and only takes 20 minutes to prepare and cook.  At only 3.5 carbs per serving, this is a wonderful Keto dish.

Steamed Monkfish & Parsley Sauce


This is a wonderful, quick and easy, dish to prepare for supper (or even a substantial lunch).  The meatiness of the monkfish provides for a filling and satisfying meal and at less than 4 carbs per serving, this is a perfect keto meal, full of flavour and goodness.  You’ll need a steamer for this recipe, but this could be cooked with the fish wrapped in a greaseproof paper parcel and baked in the oven.

Prawn Zucchini


This is a wonderfully tasty and quick dish to prepare.  Packed full of flavour, the prawns and zucchini in a rich creamy cheese sauce is a perfect dish to serve alone, with a slice of keto bread or as an accompaniment to roast chicken or a hearty sirloin steak.  With only 9.5 carbs per serving as a meal or 5 carbs as an accompaniment, this is a hearty and delicious addition to any keto menu.

Prawn Cocktail


This timeless classic is a firm favourite as a starter course in our household.  There’s something rather special about plump juicy prawns smothered in home-made, tangy, sweet cocktail sauce.  With only 5.5 carbs per serving, this is a nutritious, healthy, keto-friendly option.   Served in cocktail or dessert glasses, they make for impressive starters.

Broiled Salmon with Avocado Cream Sauce

This is more about the sauce than the salmon.  This velvety green concoction is versatile enough that it would serve many purposes, and would be great on scallops or other kinds of broiled or pan-seared fish, or even as a creamy salad dressing.  I just happened to have purchased salmon for last evening’s meal.  In

Air Fried Keto Catfish and Low Carb Hushpuppy Muffins

Still staying true to an Atkins Induction diet, also not far off the mark of a strictly Keto diet, my Number One Fan misses Southern cuisine like fried catfish and hushpuppies, not to mention mashed potatoes, grits, and pasta.  But the former last night underwent a Keto/low carb makeover that actually came out pretty good.

Sauteed Tilapia with Mustard Chive Sauce

Some time back, I posted a recipe Pan Fried Tilapia with Caper Butter.  I’ve made it many times, but on this occasion, I wanted something a little spicier and ran across a recipe on the Food Network website from the most jiggling cook on television, Giada De Laurentiis.  She broiled her fish, however, and I

Shrimp Scampi & Zoodles

I have posted a Shrimp Scampi recipe before, served with traditional pasta.  View it here.  Scampi is just a fancy menu recipe term that means shrimp sauteed in butter and olive oil, with white wine, lemon juice, lemon zest and Parmesan cheese.  This recipe, modified from a recipe on the website called “ClosetCooking,” has one

Oven Roasted Parmesan Shrimp

My Number One Fan found this very easy and versatile recipe on the website and it was intended as a shrimp cocktail.  While you can certainly eat these babies solo, we actually made them as a topper to My Version of Caesar’s Salad, a recipe I posted some years ago.  They would also go

Butter Poached Red Snapper Mediterranean

The key to this dish is freshness.  Fresh fish, fresh spinach, fresh tomatoes.  The subtle poaching of the fish in butter combines with some light Mediterranean ingredients to make a deliciously flavored butter sauce, and served on a bed of fresh wilted spinach finished with some crumbled feta cheese and balsamic vinegar.  The dish cooks
