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.

Tips

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.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    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?
