Keto Roasted Asian Salmon

Keto Roasted Asian Salmon

Geri Terry
You can’t go wrong with a staple dinner such as roasted salmon. Salmon is massively healthy, an integral protein addition to the keto diet. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids (the good fat your body needs), yet low in carbs. Salmon is also high in B vitamins, a great source of potassium, loaded with selenium, contains a compound antioxidant, helps control weight, and fight inflammation. What can’t this fish do?! Another great aspect of salmon is its versatility, you can dress up or dress down this dish and it will adapt to the flavors beautifully.

  • Heat the oven to 300 degrees. In an oven-proof skillet large enough to hold the salmon, combine olive oil, red pepper flakes, paprika, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, garlic, ginger and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and just simmering, about 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let steep for as long as possible but at least 15 minutes.  I made this part early and let it sit for a few hours.
  • Reheat until garlic starts to sizzle again.
  • Pat the salmon dry,  and then sprinkle with salt and place in the spiced oil flesh side up. Spoon some of the oil over the salmon, then bake, basting occasionally, until cooked through, 15 to 25 minutes (You will know if the salmon is done when the fish flakes when cut into with a knife or fork. Or, when an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part reaches 120 degrees).
  • Serve salmon garnished with feta. Drizzle pan oil on top. Reserve leftover oil for cooking or dipping. It’s amazing. Serve salmon garnished with feta. Drizzle pan oil on top. Reserve leftover oil for cooking or dipping. It’s amazing. This particular recipe is a simple and a perfect dish for a home-cooked meal with some delicious keto sides, such as creamy cauliflower and broccoli au gratin or prosciutto wrapped asparagus with feta.


Aunt Ger Tip: Cooking with oil is a great way to add fat to your diet. I  personally used olive oil, but since it's cooked at low heat, you can use your favorite oil, from avocado to coconut. 
Aunt Ger Tip: I think that recipes are more like The Pirates Code. They are more guidelines than actual rules! The spices used here are asian inspired, but you could easily switch it up the original spices by using cumin seeds, dried chilies, ancho or chipotle chili powders and garnish with queso fresco for more of a cajun/southwestern dish. Or, dress up your dish with Herbes de Provence and some Boursin for more of a Français style finish. Your table, your rules!
