KETO CAJUN SALMON WITH AVOCADO BUTTER
Cajun Salmon with Avocado Butter
I like salmon a lot. An everyday food, this workhorse fish isn’t very glamorous. Full of nutrients, wild salmon is an excellent source of high-quality protein and omega-3 fatty acids. I serve it a couple of times a month for dinner and see many people buy it at the store. Generally, though, it doesn’t elicit oohs and aahs from Sam. She often proclaims it to be boring.
To jazz up my seafood meals and keep it interesting, I experimented with different seasoning blends. My KetoLuxe recipe for Cajun Salmon with Avocado Butter is gluten free, sugar free, and low carb. Keto requires a fair amount of fat. This recipe amplifies the serotonin producing effects of the salmon’s natural assets. My Cajun Seasoning Blend keeps that from becoming overwhelming by adding a little zing without too much heat.
Make this for a healthy weeknight dinner.
By prepping the Avocado Butter ahead, you have it for other seafood dishes like crab or shrimp. A quick recipe, I like to pair it with sautéed vegetables when I don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. Delicious, easy, nutritious, and fast? That’s KetoLuxe.
I find Avocado Butter to be the perfect accompaniment for seafood.
