Wasabi Glazed Tilapia| Keto Friendly

Sharing is caring!

Soy sauce, a powerful blend of brine, antioxidants, and soybeans, gives this savory sauce an unmistakable taste with a huge bang for your buck. And paired with our glaze, your family will swear this Wasabi Glazed Tilapia is take-out and have a hard time convincing them otherwise. So if you’re up for an Asian-inspired meal that's low carb and keto-friendly, then grab your broiler and fillets and follow along! 

A fun fact that I learned recently about soy sauce is that it can contain up to 10 times more antioxidants than red wine. Yes, you read that correctly- 10 times more antioxidants than red wine!

Based on a little digging, I found that phytonutrients are involved.

Without getting overly scientific here, the phytonutrients have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits found in many whole grains, nuts, and fruits vegetables.

Because the traditional makeup of soy sauce is soybeans, wheat, and some form of a fermentation process, it naturally has these benefits- yay!

And although I’m not completely sold on swapping my glass of wine for soy sauce just yet, the thought of adding a bit to my meal and pairing it with a dab of wasabi (which is also a part of the cabbage family and adds to the antioxidant benefits) gives me happy feelings.

Tips For Making Wasabi Glazed Tilapia

  • After defrosting the fillets, you can create a saltwater brine to remove any ‘fish smell’ from the fillets
  • We suggest using a cooking spray equal to the type of oil you are using. If you opt for avocado oil, try to use avocado or a similar non-stick cooking spray.
