This post is perfect for keto pescatarians, people looking for quick low-carb and low-calories meals, or anyone who wants to eat more seafood.
Why share a keto fish & seafood recipes post?
I was a pescatarian
A lot of people don’t know this about me, but for almost four years I was a pescatarian. Pescatarians, unlike vegetarians or vegans, eat seafood.
I chose this option at the time, because fish and seafood are naturally lighter in calories and overall leaner. I was also under the impression that all sorts of meat were generally bad for me.
While I’ve definitely moved past those days and tend to do things like eat my seafood with meat (check out my Surf & Turf recipe), I am still very much in love with seafood.

Many have been requesting keto fish & seafood meal ideas
Besides my own experiences, I’ve been getting a lot of requests from readers like you for keto-friendly seafood recipes. Some of those people are keto pescatarians. But others just want to eat less meat each week.
So, I’m sharing this post for people who are following a keto or low-carb lifestyle, but also those who are pescatarian and general seafood lovers.
What kind of low carb seafood & fish recipes can you find in this post?
Keto Fish Recipes
Fish is naturally low in carbs and in calories. One of the things that I love about fish (and seafood generally) is that it largely takes a few minutes to cook and one pan.
This set of recipes includes some options for Swordfish, salmon, tilapia and more. There’s even one that can be made in your air fryer!
