To make this low carb seafood dish, get started by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. While it is preheating, work on preparing your filling. Heat one teaspoon of olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat and sauté a quarter-cup of chopped onions and one clove of minced garlic until they are fragrant. Add four ounces of raw shrimp to the pan and cook them for about four minutes until they become pink. Slowly stir in one tablespoon of low fat cream cheese, one tablespoon of parsley and black pepper. Once the cream cheese has melted, it’s time to stuff your fish.

Lay out eight ounces of white fish onto a plate and spoon the filling equally onto each fish fillet. Roll up the fish and place them onto a greased baking dish with the seam side down. Mix together melted butter, lemon juice, one clove of minced garlic and one tablespoon of parsley in a small bowl. Drizzle the butter mixture over the fish and season with black pepper to taste. Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes before serving.
