Ingredients

  • 113 cups 325 ml crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp tandoori seasoning
  • 1 lb 450 g cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1½ lbs 650 g cod, or any white fish with skin on
  • 2 oz. 50 g butter
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp fresh parsley, for serving (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 430°F (225°C).
  2. Mix crème fraîche with the tandoori seasoning. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  3. Divide the cauliflower into small florets or roughly chop into smaller pieces. Transfer the cauliflower to an ovenproof dish and drizzle with olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until it gets a nice golden color.
  4. Salt and pepper the fish on both sides. Fry skin side down in butter on medium high heat. Flip after a few minutes and lower the heat. Feel free to drizzle the upper side of the fish with some butter from the pan. The skin should be crispy and the meat white.
  5. Serve fish with cauliflower and tandoori sauce. Sprinkle with parsley.

Tip!

If you don't want to use your oven, you can also steam or butter fry the cauliflower on the stovetop.

Leave the tandoori sauce at room temperature if you're going to serve it straight away, otherwise store in the refrigerator. It tastes best when it's not too cold.

The plan has you alternating OMAD one day followed by two meals, lunch and dinner, the next day. It is simple and no fuss. And you’ll be eating delicious, nourishing meals. Do make sure you drink lots of water (tea or black coffee is fine, too.) And get enough salt to minimize side effects like headaches and keto flu.

    This may very well be my answer...I veered off the keto not wanting to but happened, and ended up eating more the 'carnivore diet' (which looks unappetizing when it's written down!) And need direction to get back on keto with a low carb directory - guidance to get on a healthy track... Yes to the free month, then how much?
