Keto Crispy Ginger Mackerel Lunch Bowl

Keto Recipes > Keto Lunch Recipes

I’ve fallen in love with mackerel! It’s an oily fish that’s consumed all over the world, but not something I got into until recently. It’s high in omega-3’s, which is something I’m always looking to get more of.

Keto Crispy Ginger Mackerel Lunch Bowl

This recipe takes mackerel and turns it into a flavor-packed meal. We marinate the fish in ginger, lemon, and coconut aminos before roasting it in the oven. The base of the bowl is broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes, and peppers. Then everything is finished off with roasted almonds and guac.
