This low carb fish casserole is an excellent idea for a leisurely lunch. The sweetness of the smoked tuna complements the baked cherry tomatoes well. And the mix of eggs, cream cheese, and coconut flour make this dish nutritious.
Why use coconut flour?
Coconut flour is underrated in most kitchens. Sometimes you just need a meal with no carbs, but you want it to be nutritious and nourishing. Coconut flour with eggs is a delicious mix and goes well in a low carb, paleo, gluten-free pancake. It also goes well in a dish that involves fish and vegetables. It is light, and you really can’t feel any coconut flavor. If you don’t have coconut flour, don’t replace it with something else; just make the dish without flour. It will be more like an omelet, but still delicious.
What kind of fish to use
You can use pretty much any type of smoked fish, including smoked salmon fish. But you don’t want the fish to overpower the tastes, so I use smoked mackerel as I can easy find it everywhere.
How to prepare low carb fish casserole
This recipe is a casserole but is far from the soggy picture we all have in mind when thinking about fish casseroles. Mix the eggs with cream cheese and coconut flour. Add salt and pepper, place the batter in the dish and then add the fish and tomato. If your fish is already salted, you don’t need salt at all.
I hope you try and enjoy our recipe; it looks so good and tastes good. You can serve it warm or cold. Before serving, I also sprinkled a little dried oregano to add a little Mediterranean flavor.
