This low carb baked fish recipe is perfect for a quick and easy midweek dinner.


  • 4 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 2 Tbsp. cornflour
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped thyme
  • ½ cup grated parmesan
  • 4 hake fillets
  • 400 grams baby carrots
  • 5 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


PREHEAT oven to 200℃.

PLACE 3 tbsp of the melted butter on one plate. Mix the flours together on another plate and season with salt and pepper. Combine bread crumbs, thyme and parmesan on a third plate.

DIP fish fillets into the melted butter, then into the flour and back into the melted butter. Finally coat in parmesan breadcrumbs. Arrange on a baking tray and brush tops with any remaining melted butter leftover from the plate.

BAKE for 12 minutes, until the fish is cooked though.

MEANWHILE, boil carrots in a pot of salted boiling water for 5 minutes, until almost cooked. Drain, then return carrots to the pot and place over a medium heat. Add honey and remaining 1 tbsp butter, swirling to coat the carrots. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 3 minutes, until glazed and golden.

SERVE hot fish and carrots with lemon wedges on the side.

TIP: You can tell when fish is properly cooked as it will turn opaque in colour and the fish will flake easily when separated with a fork.
