  • 4 mackerel fillets
  • 2 medium zucchinis, sliced
  • 1 cup keto-friendly cereal
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). This is where the magic begins!
  2. Prepare the Cereal Crust: In a food processor, pulse the keto-friendly cereal until it forms a coarse crumb. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Season the Mackerel: Pat the mackerel fillets dry with paper towels. Rub them with olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
  4. Crust the Mackerel: Press the seasoned mackerel fillets into the cereal crumbs, ensuring an even coating on all sides.
  5. Arrange on Baking Sheet: Place the crusted mackerel fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Arrange the zucchini slices around the fish, drizzling them with a bit of olive oil and seasoning with salt and pepper.
  6. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the mackerel is cooked through and the crust is golden brown.
  7. Serve: Remove from the oven and let rest for a few minutes. Serve the mackerel with the roasted zucchini, garnished with fresh parsley and lemon slices.
