This recipe is one of my favorite fish recipes for several reasons.
- It uses salmon which is my fave fish (living in the Seattle area you gotta love it).
- it is a one-pot/pan meal.
- It is ready in less than 30 minutes.
- It is creamy and rich and decadent so I feel like I am cheating but I am not.
- It is Italian and I love Italian!
- It is not geared only to the keto lifestyle/diet. My carb loving friends and family love it too!
You know when you are living the low carb lifestyle it can get kinda tricky cooking for people that aren’t watching their carbs.
Many of those family and friends can get the “look” on their face as soon as they hear you are making something that is low carb.
You know, the squinchy bitter face? Like they smelled something really bad? Yup, that’s the one!
So many people that haven’t tried good keto-friendly food can assume they won’t like it. But I am here to tell you that is so far from the truth. Living with a carbivour I have learned to come up with recipes that are inviting for both sides of the carb world.
Honestly, there is no better compliment than someone that is not keto telling me they love my food and want the recipes!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE CREAMY KETO TUSCAN SALMON
HOW TO MAKE CREAMY KETO TUSCAN SALMON
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Season the salmon filets on both sides with salt and pepper, and sear in the hot pan, skin down first, for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking.
Once salmon filets are cooked, remove them from the pan and set them aside.
In the same pan, add in the garlic saute until fragrant (about one minute). Add onion and cook until translucent (about 3 to 5 minutes).
Add the sun-dried tomatoes and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Add the chicken bone broth, and allow the sauce to reduce slightly (about 3 more minutes).
Reduce heat to low, add the heavy cream, and bring to a gentle simmer while stirring occasionally. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to your taste.
Add in the fresh baby spinach and allow to wilt into the sauce, then add in the parmesan cheese. Allow cream sauce to simmer for another minute or so until the parmesan cheese melts.
Add the grilled salmon filets back into the pan, spoon the sauce over each filet, and top with the basil. Serve over cauliflower rice, mashed cauliflower, zucchini noodles, or spaghetti squash.
FAQS ABOUT CREAMY KETO TUSCAN SALMON
Can I use garlic powder and onion powder to reduce the carbs? The difference between using fresh garlic and garlic powder (1 1/2 teaspoons) would only be about .57 fewer carbs for the entire recipe so not a big save there. If you would like to substitute onion powder (1 1/2 teaspoons) for the fresh onion you would save about 2.85 carbs for the entire recipe, or .71 per serving.
