5-Ingredient Salmon Alfredo Keto Recipe

Ingredients

keto salmon alfredo with zucchini pasta

Ingredients for 3 servings:

  • 3/4 lb raw, wild salmon
  • 4 medium raw zucchini
  • 8oz whipping cream or heavy cream
  • 1/5 cup shredded parmesan
  • fresh dill to taste
  • Garnish
    • 2 tablespoons shredded parmesan
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
Steps
  1. Set oven to 400F/204C.
  2. Season raw salmon with a little sea salt & pepper.  Place it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.   Bake for 10 – 12 minutes at 400F.  Once it finishes baking, mash and flake the salmon with a fork.  Set aside.
  3. While the salmon bakes, spiralize zucchini using a spiralizer or Julienne shredder.  Once you’ve cut the noodles, sprinkle them with a little sea salt to help soften the noodles and release excess water.  Set the noodles aside for 5- 10 minutes, then pat them dry with a paper towel to remove excess water.
  4. Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat, then pour in the cream.  Bring it to a light simmer, then sprinkle in parmesan and a little pepper.  Stir until smooth, then reduce the heat to low to thicken the sauce.
  5. Let the sauce thicken and cool for about 2 minutes, then add zucchini pasta.  Toss the noodles in the sauce before adding the flaked salmon.
  6. Season to taste with fresh dill and sea salt & pepper.
  7. Garnish with remaining parmesan.
