Crunchy Parmesan Baskets With Tuna

Parmesan baskets are one of many ways you can enjoy this super cheese and feel totally guilt-free even if you are on a low carb diet.

You can make these zero carb baskets by melting Parmesan in your oven or microwave but I prefer the non-stick pan because it’s a much quicker way to get these perfectly crunchy golden goodies.

  • 100 g Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 can tuna in olive oil
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • chili crushed


  • Heat a non-stick pan over medium to high
  • Sprinkle the grated Parmesan in a thin layer forming a circle. The circle should be a bit bigger than your shot glass bottom.
  • Cook for about a minute, until the cheese melts and becomes golden.
  • Carefully peel the cheese circle off the pan and quickly place it on the shot glass bottom (golden side up). Gently press the cheese around the glass to shape a basket and leave it to cool for about a minute. Repeat with the remaining cheese.
  • Fill the baskets with tuna and mayo and sprinkle with crushed chili
