If you’re wrapping not-so-fatty tilapia fillets with uncured bacon strips, what you’ll be getting is protein-rich packaged scrumptiousness just waiting to be gobbled. Flavor this extremely low-carb dish with ghee and oregano. Pair the fillets with a lemony peppery mayo sauce and enjoy.

Ingredients Needed for Bacon-Wrapped Tilapia

12 uncured bacon strips
1 ½ pounds of tilapia (4 fillets 6-ounce each)
2 tablespoons of ghee
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon juice

How to Cook Bacon-Wrapped Tilapia

  1. Place 3 bacon strips side by side on the work surface. Add 1 tilapia fillet over them.
  2. Coat the fillet with ghee and season with oregano and pepper on both sides. Wrap the strips around the fillet. Follow the same steps for the remaining bacon and tilapia.
  3. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and transfer the wrapped fillets on it. Bake for 25 minutes at 380⁰F/190⁰C.
  4. Add the mayonnaise and lemon juice to a small bowl and mix until even. Season with pepper and mix some more.
  5. Serve the fillets with lemon and mayo sauce.
