Harissa salmon is the perfect dish for anyone who wants to add a little bit of spice to their keto meal plan. This recipe is nutritious, high in healthy fats, and can be whipped up quickly. All you need to do is put the ingredients onto an oven tray, and 15 minutes later, you’ll be enjoying a scrumptious feast!
The spice in this dish is delivered through the harissa paste that you marinate the salmon in before cooking. Harissa paste is a mixture of chilies, garlic, olives, and spices, such as cumin and coriander. It can be quite hot, so if you’re not a fan of really spicy food, just use a little bit of the paste and then add some extra olive oil to thin it out. This way you’ll still get all the flavor but without so much heat.
Salmon and kale are a match made in keto heaven. This is because salmon is an excellent source of good fats like omega-3 fatty acids and kale is a great source of vitamins A, C, and E. When combined, they will leave you feeling full and ensure you have lots of energy—all without the need for any carbs.
This dish can be prepped in a couple of minutes and then added to one oven tray before baking it for about 15-minutes. For a spicy keto-friendly dish, give our harissa salmon recipe a go.
