Pan-seared Salmon

The benefits of salmon are ridiculous, especially once you apply them to a high fat diet like keto.   Salmon should be eaten more than once per week when on keto.  This pan-seared recipe makes it easy.  Put a bag of frozen wild caught salmon in the fridge for a few days to allow it to thaw.  When you want a quick meal, this fish will take no more than 15 minutes flat.

Serve with extra butter, sour cream or avocado.  Choose a nice vegetable side like dill carrots to accompany the fish.

The right amount of omega 3's are difficult to attain in any diet, but even more difficult when you are eating high fat for all your meals.
