Coconut-crumbed Cod Fillets

Just because you are closely monitoring your carb intake, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy heavenly things like crumbed cod fillets. These ‘crumbed’ fish fillets are coated in coconut flour, egg and then desiccated coconut, making them a great gluten-free, low-carb option. They can be enjoyed with a side salad of your choice, but we love it with the (chicken less-version of) Crunchy Asian Slaw for a lovely light summer meal.

Serves 4 

Calories per cod fillet = 265 Cal

Macros per cod fillet

  • Fats 16g
     of which saturates       3g
  • Carbs 4g
     of which sugars           1.2g
  • Protein 25g

Ingredients:

salt and white pepper
4 cod fillets (approx. 120g each)
25g coconut flour
1 medium egg
½ cup desiccated coconut
2 TB olive oil
1 lime, to serve

Method:

Season both sides of the cod with salt and white pepper.

Place the coconut flour in a bowl. Whisk the egg in a second bowl. Spread out the desiccated coconut in a third bowl.

Dust both sides of the cod pieces in the first bowl of coconut flour. Tap gently to remove excess flour, then dip them into the whisked egg, lifting to allow excess egg to run off. Finally, press the fillets firmly into the desiccated coconut so it’s covered on both sides.

Cooking the cod fillets in two batches, heat half the olive oil in a large, non-stick pan and grill the fish fillets over medium heat until golden brown on both sides, approximately 4-6 minutes. Repeat the process with the remaining oil and remaining two fillets (you may need to wipe the pan clean between each fry-up.)

Season the fish with salt if needed and generously squeeze lime over.

Ingredients:

2 TB ground flaxseeds
½ large apple, diced very small, 1mm
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 ¼ cups almond flour
¼ cup raw rolled oats
1 TB baking powder
pinch salt
1 tsp Stevia
2 TB unrefined brown sugar

2 tsp vanilla essence
2 TB vegetable oil

Combine the ground flaxseed with six tablespoons water in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine the finely diced apple with half a teaspoon of the ground cinnamon. Set aside.

Prepare the dry ingredients by mixing the whole wheat flour, almond flour, raw oats, baking powder, salt, Stevia and sugar. Add the remaining cinnamon (one teaspoon) to this mixture too. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond milk, vanilla essence, oil and the flaxseed mixture. Add this wet milk mixture to the flour mixture and combine well. Fold in the diced cinnamon apples until evenly distributed.

Spoon the muffin mixture into a greased standard-sized muffin tin. You will only have enough to fill 10 spaces. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a knife or cake tester inserted into a baked muffin comes out clean.

Remove the muffins using a spoon and allow to cool on a cooling rack, or even better – eat them warm!

Guilt-free Fry Up

We called this a guilt-free fry up because that is exactly what this is. This is a fantastic option for those who are allergic to eggs but still want to enjoy a low-carb breakfast. The truth is, you can get quite creative with lean chicken mince, as we have done here.

Serves 2

Calories per serving = 267 kCal

Macros per serving:

  • FATS – 12.6g
    • of which saturates 2.5g
  • CARBS – 3.6g
    • of which sugars 3.2g
  • PROTEIN – 32.5g

Ingredients:

250g lean chicken mince
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp dried oregano
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp olive oil
6 mushrooms, halved
½ avocado, peeled and sliced
1 large tomato, sliced

Method:

Preheat the oven to 160°C.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Combine the chicken mince with the onion powder and dried oregano. Season the mixture well with salt and pepper. Divide into 4 equal parts and roll each one into little sausage-like shapes.

Heat one teaspoon olive oil in a pan and fry the sausages over medium heat until golden and crispy on the outside. They will not be cooked on the inside yet, so this when you can pop them in an oven-proof dish for 10-15 minutes to cook all the way through.

Use this time to prepare the remaining ingredients. Use the same pan (you may need to give it a wipe with kitchen paper, then add the additional teaspoon olive oil and fry the mushrooms until golden. Add the tomato slices and lightly fry to your liking.

Divide into two portions and serve the cooked chicken sausages, fried mushrooms and tomatoes and sliced avocado. Season the plates generously with salt and black pepper. If you have any herbs or spring onions in the fridge, add them as a garnish.

Fat-free Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Popsicles

Invest in popsicle / lolly moulds and you will be making these refreshing, guilt-free popsicles all summer long. (Reusable silicon or plastic popsicle/lolly moulds are approximately £9 on Amazon and will be a great investment if you have a sweet tooth. Most are 100ml in size and come in sets of 6).

Makes 7

Calories per lolly = 71Cal

Macros per Lolly:

  • FATS – 0g
    • of which saturates 0g
  • CARBS – 9.7g
    • of which sugars 9.7g
  • PROTEIN – 6.8g

Ingredients:

230g fresh strawberries, weight after trimming
3 TB fructose (fruit sugar)
450g fat-free plain Greek-style yogurt

 

Method:

Trim the strawberries and dice into small pieces. Place in a bowl and sprinkle over the fructose, mixing well. Cover and leave to macerate in the fridge overnight.

The next morning, blitz the strawberries to a puree and fold in three-quarters of this blitzed puree into the yogurt. Whisk well to combine.

Divide the strawberry yogurt between the 100ml lolly moulds*, stopping at intervals to add a little of the remaining blitzed strawberry puree. (This just makes it look pretty by giving it a mottled appearance. You can simply combine all the blitzed puree into the yogurt if that’s easier and quicker for you.) Click the lid/stick in place in each mould, and place upright in the freezer for several hours, preferable overnight.

Remove the popsicles from the freezer 30 minutes before eating and place them in the fridge. This will result in a softer texture – and may make it easier to remove the popsicle from the mould. (If you still struggle to remove it, run a little warm water on the outside of the popsicle mould and slide the lolly out.)

*You are likely to have some leftover mixture after filling the 6 moulds. You can simply place this in a small bowl or ramekin, cover with cling film and freeze along with the others, or leave unfrozen and enjoy as an addition to your breakfast smoothie.
