Fish is a great addition to the diet – not only does salmon have omega-3 fatty acids but it also is packed with protein and vitamin B. 

For this recipe, I used soy sauce, but if you don’t like using soy on keto (many don’t!) than switch it out for coconut aminos which you should be able to find in your local grocery store.

I also added a bit of sugar substitute. Erythritol, monk fruit or allulose will caramelize while cooking and give it a delicious hint of sweetness without raising blood sugar.

All in all – this quick keto salmon recipe takes approximately 10-15 minutes to make. Make sure not to overcook the salmon otherwise it might dry out. You want it to be a light pink on the inside but also flaky.
