Keto Broiled Spanish Mackerel
In my opinion, Spanish mackerel are the tastiest members of the mackerel family and this Broiled Spanish Mackerel recipe is a great way to showcase this flaky fish. Spanish mackerel have shiny slender bodies and can be found swimming in the open seas of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a smart seafood choice because it is sustainably harvested and is not overfished.
The other great thing about this Spanish mackerel recipe? It is keto-friendly if you’re a pescatarian on the keto diet. I think the element that raises this recipe above other Spanish mackerel recipes I’ve tried is the broiled lemons. Just before cooking, I lay some lemon slices on top of the mackerel fillets and these infuse the fish with a citrusy lemon flavor as they cook.
