Salmon by itself is totally keto, but you don’t always want a plain slab of salmon and some salt for dinner. To that end, I’ve put together this list of Keto salmon recipes that will keep you on track with your diet, but at the same time, keep your taste buds from being unhappy and bored!
Keto Baked Lemon Herb Parmesan Crusted Salmon
I’m a huge fan of parmesan coated food. Years ago I learned that if you let them sit on a rack a little while before dropping the meat in the pan then the egg has time to set a little and bond to the meat. That helps keep the breading on when you cook it.
Keto Maple Pecan And Almond Crusted Salmon
Sweet sauces and coatings work great with salmon, especially when you are working with a dry, less flavorful variety like Atlantic salmon. This recipe adds a ton of flavor and some texture to what might otherwise be a boring cut of salmon.
Keto Parmesan Dill Salmon
Dill has always been a great pairing for salmon. Personally I’d go with a stronger flavored salmon like King for this recipe as it has more flavor and can hold up to the strong flavor
Keto Creamy Lemon Garlic Salmon
Getting away from the crusted salmon which is the general go-to keto salmon recipe, we have a lovely lemon and cream sauce that is easy to whip up. If you are cooking keto, you likely have all the other ingredients for this recipe in your fridge already!
Salmon with Bacon Tomato Cream Sauce
I don’t often see tomato sauce recipes for salmon so this is a lovely change of pace. I’ll be honest, if you start talking bacon, I’ll probably be all over a recipe. Bacon is awesome!
Garlic Mustard Broiled Salmon
As ingredients go, I’ve had to get accustomed to not flinching when I hear mustard because coming from North Idaho, there was only shitty yellow mustard. Dijon mustard and garlic work together though to make a simple but awesome sauce for this broiled salmon recipe.
Grilled Salmon with Cucumber Dill Sauce
Really this is more of a dipping sauce recipe than a straight up salmon recipe since you could really use this sauce as an accompaniment to any basic salmon recipe. You might not think that cucumber and dill would work with salmon but you should really give this one a shot.
