Keto Friendly Low Carb Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon Steak Recipe

Keto Friendly Low Carb Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon Steak Recipe that contains the good Omega-3 fatty acid that your body needs.

Before we get to the recipe lets talk a minute about why I stated “Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon”.  Wild Alaskan salmon is a powerhouse of nutrition. They are a rich source of vitamins such as B-6 and B-12 as well as  the minerals selenium, magnesium and phosphorus. There is a lot of research going on at this time about our bodies need for magnesium and the fact that most people are not getting enough in their diets. To get all these benefits you need to be sure that you purchase “Wild Caught” and not farmed salmon. Of the wild caught salmon on the market, Alaskan salmon is the best choice.

Wild sockeye salmon have bright red flesh, whereas farmed salmon are usually pale pink. But still check the label because I have seen labels that say “color added”. If I see that, it is a sure sign that it is farm raised. It is becoming harder to find wild caught fish that are not contaminated with mercury and no longer the best choice on the market.  Wild caught Alaskan Salmon is one of the best choices available.

Enjoying fish a couple of times a week helps to get the amount of omega-3 fatty acids the body needs. However, the ocean has become the worlds dumping ground so there is a limited amount of wild caught fish that you can enjoy without worrying about the mercury content in the fish. At one time Tuna was one of my favorite fish but it is now on the do-not-eat list for that very reason.

We live in Puerto Vallarta close to a small fishing village so we can go to the dock and wait for the fishing boats in the morning and purchase wild caught fish directly from the boats. We choose the small fish that have not had as much time to become contaminated with mercury. When we are at our home in Wisconsin we purchase our seafood and prepare it at home because we just never know what or where the fish served in restaurants came from. So before you go out for an all you can eat fish fry, ask yourself what is it that they are frying and is it farm raised?

  • love cooking my salmon on an outdoor grill to capture the extra flavor. Your grill information is great. Now I am considering adding a new table top grill to take with me when I am traveling.

  • You do notice everything and yes hot sauce is a great condiment to use. We usually have two or three hot to hotter salsas on the kitchen table here in Mexico so it is an option in the glaze depending on who is visiting. I don’t have any steaks on hand so need to pick up a couple and change the picture. That is a project for the coming week, until then I hope this will do.

  • I eat a lot of Alaskan Wild Caught Salmon so I will post a recipe without mustard for you. I think some condiments can overpower a fish but it used sparingly it gives it a slightly different taste. If you only eat Salmon once in a while then a little lemon butter and perhaps a couple of herbs and it will be great. Dinner sounds good and we get that all important omega-3 fatty acid our bodies need.

  • Thank you for the tips about wild caught salmon, as opposed to farmed salmon. I had heard that wild caught was healthier and had a better taste. Today, I bought a white fish, so I will be preparing that in a lemon-butter sauce for my dinner. Yummy! Fish is delish! Your recipe, by the way, looks lovely, but, for my tastes, it would lovelier without mustard! 🙂 (alice declares war on condiments, lol)
