Low Carb Pesce Zoodle Bake

This delicious seafood bake has more than just fish! Fresh white cod is paired with chopped shrimp and bite-sized clams for the perfect trio. Baked over a bed of zucchini noodles, it’s almost just like eating your favorite pesce pasta dish. Now all that’s missing is a glass of white wine!

Recipe Steps

steps 8

55 min

  • Step 1

    Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Begin by spiraling the zucchini into thin noodles. When done, you can place the zucchini noodles directly into a glass baking dish that has been sprayed.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Prepare the cod, shrimp, canned clams, and garlic clove. The clams can stay whole if they are baby clams, but chop the cod and shrimp (de-veining and peeling the shrimp is necessary). Mince the garlic.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Melt the butter in a wide skillet over medium-high heat. Toss in the proteins and garlic. Cook until the cod is just cooked through - 4-5 minutes.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Toss in the salt, pepper, onion powder, italian seasoning, and bay leaf. Stir until the ingredients are coated.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Pour the cream and lemon juice into the skillet. Stir and let the liquid simmer for another 4-5 minutes. Then, set the pan aside to cool and let the sauce thicken for another 5 minutes off the heat. Remove the bay leaf.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Pour the Pesce sauce over the zucchini noodles in the baking dish. Cover the top of the dish with the parmesan cheese.
    Step 6
  • Step 7

    Bake the dish for 25 minutes - just enough time for the dish to heat through, soften the zucchini to al dente, and melt the cheese.
    Step 7
  • Step 8

    Serve on 2 plates and enjoy!

      A few changes. I cooked the fish and made the sauce with spices. I added 1/4 cup sliced red pepper and 1/8 cup chopped parsley. Then I added the zucchini zoodles and tossed in the cream sauce. Tossed with the cheese. Wonderful and easy.

        Just made this dish. It turned out great, would make a few alterations. Can be a little salty depending on the type of cheese you use. Would probably use mozzarella and that would most likely take care of the extra saltiness. Will make again. I quadrupled the recipe and feeds six to eight.
