Bacon Wrapped Tilapia

The smoky bacon provides a savory saltiness to this light white fish, while a delicate lemon cream sauce balances it all out.


4 (6-ounce) flounder fillets, rinsed and patted dry

3 tablespoons Golden Ghee, melted

1 teaspoon dried basil

Freshly ground black pepper

12 uncured center-cut bacon strips

¼ cup mayonnaise

1 ½ tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice


Preparing:10 min

Cooking:30 min

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Brush the fillets with the ghee, then sprinkle them with the basil and a few grinds of pepper. Wrap three slices of bacon around each fillet and place the wrapped fillets, bacon seams down, on the sheet.

Bake the fillets until cooked through and flaky, 20 to 30 minutes.

In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, and a pinch of pepper. Serve this sauce in small ramekins alongside the fish for dipping.
