Delicious Sesame Orange Salmon Ready in less than an hour

I am always looking for a great tasting, healthy fish recipe. In The Ketogenic Cookbook, there are many great recipes, and I am excited to share one of my favorites! This broiled salmon is delicious and makes eating healthy a treat. Plus, although there are quite a few ingredients and some time marinating, you can really fix it fast. If you are interested in the healthy lifestyle or Paleo or Ketogenic diets, check out this cookbook!

Ingredients you will need:

MCT oil
coconut aminos
powdered erythritol
coconut vinegar
dark sesame oil
salmon filets
coconut oil
orange flavor (or 2-3 drops of food grade orange oil)
Fine sea salt (I use Real Salt) and fresh ground black pepper
Fresh thyme sprigs or 2 tsp of chopped fresh herbs (optional)
Sprinkle of hibiscus salt, for garnish (optional…I left this off, but I am sure it would have looked prettier!)
Note: These are Amazon links for your convenience, but if you have a Thrive Market membership, you can get some items cheaper there. If I don’t need an item right away, I will use Thrive and save up items to get the free shipping.)

    This looks mouth-watering!!

    (and healthy!)

    I not only want to thank you for this sumptuous recipe, but also for turning me on to the Ketogenic diet! I had never heard of it before and thought it sounded like a fad, but when I checked it out, I was astonished that this amazing diet has been available to help victims of epilepsy and Parkinson’s since 1924!! Why doesn’t the mainstream know about this? People are suffering every day, and this diet helped 5 out of 7 people reduce the amount of seizures, and the anecdotal evidence for reduction of Parkinson’s misery was compelling. I also suspect it may be very helpful in treating diabetes.

    I’m definitely putting this book on my wish list. And I am so impressed with your thorough research. You’ve been revealing secrets that I haven’t found on ANY other website. Thank you so very much.

    I’ll be cooking the salmon shortly!

    Yes, I have tried just clean eating and then Paleo, but once I started the keto diet, that is really when I saw results. This salmon is delicious, and you don’t feel like you are missing out because you are “eating healthy.” I hope you enjoy it!
