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. Four years later, she has maintained a 65-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

We’ve talked a lot about how salmon is a Ketology superfood. A great source of the good Omega-3 fats we need, this protein source also is rich in B vitamins, selenium and is delicious! This is a keto salmon recipe I’ve been making for years – it’s simple to make and is another family favorite that also happens to be perfect for a Ketogenic lifestyle.


We have a few salmon recipes on here, because salmon truly is one of the best protein sources to stock in your fridge or freezer.

Why is Salmon a keto superfood?

We have a few keto salmon recipes on in our repertoire. Why? Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and quite versatile to cook with, Salmon is a great source of good protein as well. Like eggs, salmon is loaded with B Vitamins and Selenium and aids weight control and reduces the risks of heart disease. While many tout the importance of eating wild caught salmon vs. farm raised and with some good reasoning, adding fresh salmon to your diet is beneficial from any reputable source.

I’ll usually make a double portion of this keto salmon recipe and save half for lunch or dinner later in the week. You can find wasabi paste in most supermarkets – adjust based on your taste…a little of this paste goes a long way!
