When we are going to cook fish at home one of my favorites is Keto Friendly Spicy Salmon Steaks! Of course living in what was once a tired fishing village, there are so many different wild caught ocean fish to chose from it can become hard to chose which one to cook. Wild caught Salmon is imported to this fishing village but we treat ourselves to it every once in a while. With ZERO carbs, it is tempting to eat it more often and about the only thing holding us back is that it must be Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon to be served at our house because it is the best and cleanest Salmon available anywhere..
Wild caught Alaskan Salmon steak gives us the much needed anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids as well as vitamin B 12. Both of these are very important and not found in a lot of the foods we eat. Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon as well as other smaller wild caught fresh fish is a great place to get them. Research is showing that as a nation about 80 percent of us are low on omega 3 fatty acids and have way to much omega 6 fatty acids. To help correct that, we enjoy wild caught fish in our house two to three times a week.
Of course that is not all you get when you dine on Keto Friendly Spicy Wild Caught Salmon Steaks. They also contain vitamin B6, and potassium as well as vitamin D. Everywhere you turn these days doctors are telling us that we are not getting enough vitamin D. Where we live we have sunshine almost every day all year long so getting some D vitamin is not as challenging as it might be in the winter months elsewhere. During those months, try to include wild caught fish such as these Salmon Steaks in your diet weekly,
- 4 each 6 to 8 ounce Salmon Steaks
- 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced

- Add ⅛ teaspoon of chili powder and a pinch of salt to the flour and mix well.
- Remove the salmon steaks from the marinate and dredge them in the flour so that they are completely coated.
- Place them in the oil and cook to a golden brown on each side being careful not to over cook them. Depending on how thick the fish is, the time will very on this step.
- Remove cooked Low Carb Spicy Salmon Steaks from the oil and put on a paper towel to soak excess oil.
- Serve with salad or vegetables
We have used this same recipe with Tuna Steaks and enjoyed them equally as well. I will suggest that if you are going to eat Tuna, always go for the smaller fish, which means you need to actually see the fish and not purchase pre-cut fillets or steaks. The reason is the the larger the fish the more mercury it has had time to consume and you do not want to e eating fish that are full of mercury.
As a big fan of fresh ginger I can tell you when it comes to fish, a little goes a long ways. With zero carbohydrates for the salmon, there is room for a great vegetable and salad.
