Low-Carb Pesto Baked Sea Bass

Pin recipeFollow us 48.6k

If you are looking for a simple keto recipe made with a few common ingredients, try sea bass baked with homemade pesto. Unlike fatty fish such as salmon, sea bass is naturally low in fat and high in protein. Using homemade pesto and ghee not only enhances the flavour but also adds healthy fats that make this meal suitable for a ketogenic diet.

Ingredients (makes 2 servings)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / 400 F. Place the sea bass skin side down into a baking dish lined with baking paper. Season with salt and brush the tops with ghee. Add a squeeze of lemon and place in the oven for 10 minutes.
  2. Then, remove from the oven and top each of the fillets with 2 tablespoons of pesto (I used my Basil & Macadamia Pesto). Place back in the oven and bake for another 3-5 more minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and let it cool down for 5 minutes. Serve hot with Garlic & Lemon Roasted Broccoli!
