wannabe alfredo sauce with sizzlefish scallops recipe + tutorial video

by purelytwins

A few days ago we received the best package in the mail.

A box full of amazing already preportioned FISH from Sizzlefish company. If you don’t know anything about them they focus on high quality fish that is perfectly portioned for easy and quick meals! We absolutely love how they are portioned out and for one serving. No more weighing out our fish. Love that.


And another thing that we have been loving about Sizzlefish products is the quality. Seriously blown away with how easily the fish defrosted and cooked, and how they tasted like fresh fish every time. Now we’ve had some poor quality frozen fish before but so far Sizzlefish’s quality has been amazing.


Plus in the package they sent they had cedar planks in there for grilling. Wow!! First time using cedar planks and love it.  Provides incredible flavor to the fish. Gary is still talking about how good that salmon was!

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset


See Lori making this for her and Gary in this video.

Thanks again Sizzlefish for sending us the fish to review.

We were not paid to say any of this. We received the fish for free to review here on the blog. All the opinions are our own. We have no affiliation with them we truly enjoyed their product.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes

Alfredo sauce

  • 1 cup cooked cauliflower
  • 6oz of yogurt of choice (we found goat yogurt to be the best)

  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • handful of fresh parsley
  • 12 tablespoons mustard

  2. Take 1 cup of already cooked cauliflower place in blender.
  3. Add in yogurt, nutritional yeast, sea salt, mustard, parsley, and spices.
  4. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  5. Adjust flavors to taste.

  15. Can add in black pepper if desired on top.


  • Serving Size: serves 2

Dinner is served 🙂 Serve this meal with your favorite dinner side dishes!!

For substitutions you can use any yogurt you desire. We have already made the sauce twice and used goat and coconut based ones and both came out. We preferred the goat one, yes this makes it not dairy free. We like using yogurt to help give creaminess and a little boost of probiotics.  You can use any mustard of your liking and add black pepper to the final dish.

This creamy alfredo sauce is a very light and creamy sauce that can go over any veggie or pasta dish.

Is that a hard floor-cutting board thingy on a grill??

I wish Sizzlefish shipped here to Canada. Their fishes look authentic and fantastic.

Those fish fillets look great. I’m too far away to order, but I think this would be a great gift idea for my family back in the States. Yum!

Hi Guys

This looks amazing.

Wish we had something like Sizzlefish in South Africa.

And I never would have thought of using something like cedar planks to give the fish more flavor.

The texture and color of the food also looks great. YUM!!

Keep it up guys.
