Lolita Carrico
A certified nutritionist and self-taught chef with a love for entertaining and experimenting with food, Lolita Carrico created Ketology after struggling for years with her own hormonal changes and weight gain. After having two children, she found that managing her weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. After researching the ketogenic diet thoroughly and understanding the science and nutritional aspects, she began her keto journey in 2018. Within three months, she shed 25 pounds and her mood improved, focus sharpened and her energy was through the roof. Three years later, she has maintained a 55-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

I feature keto salmon recipes a lot – because I eat a whole lot of salmon. It’s so easy to make and full of healthy fats – and is delicious for literally any meal! This garlic butter recipe is one I use in all sorts of dishes – it’s my secret ingredient for my keto garlic butter salmon recipe which everyone asks for how to make it all the time – but also is divine on chicken breast, vegetables and on baked cauliflower.

I serve this over roasted asparagus – the combination of asparagus and salmon is a marriage made in heaven and is filling and delicious. The secret is the keto garlic butter sauce that is perfect with the fatty salmon to bring out the flavors. I use fresh parsley to a hint of fresh herbiness, color and extra flavor. I prefer Italian flat parsley but you can also use curly parsley — what’s great about parsley is that it helps with digestion and is rich in antioxidants, is a natural diuretic and is rich in nutrients that support eye health and heart health – and it’s delicious! So I chop up a generous amount of parsley in my low carb garlic butter recipe, the more the better!
