A simple, healthy Halibut recipe served over Lemony Zucchini Noodles with olive oil, garlic and Italian parsley, topped with sweet summer tomatoes. A quick and easy low-carb meal!
Here’s a quick and easy weeknight dinner that is low in carbs and full of clean bright flavors. Pan-seared Halibut (or substitute cod, tofu, salmon, sea bass, scallops etc…) served over lemony zucchini noodles with garlic, olive oil and parsley. Top this with sweet, end-of summer tomatoes and you have a delicious healthy dinner in 20 minutes flat. Such simple flavors…. but oh so good!
We’re still working on all the zucchini around here and one of my favorite ways to eat it, is in noodle form, of course! I use an attachment to my Kitchen Aid Mixer, which if I’m being totally honest, is a little cumbersome, but every once in a while I’ll pull it out and make big batches of the noodles and freeze what we don’t use. Also, there are store-bought “zoodles” everywhere these days, if you don’t want to make them yourself. No judgment! I’m all for quick and easy! ( FYI -I think Trader Joe’s carries them in their freezer section.)
For those on the Keto diet, this would be the perfect meal. Mostly veggies with a little protein.
But even if you are not on the Keto diet, this is still a tasty, healthy dinner option.
For vegans living under the same roof, you could easily pan-sear some tofu and serve it atop the zucchini noodles.
The combination of olive oil, lemon zest, garlic and parsley, really compliments not only the fish, but the zucchini too!
Hope you enjoy!
