Ketogenic Nasi Lemak

Ketogenic Nasi Lemak

This is a very popular rice dish that can be found in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. In fact, it is Malaysia's national dish. Usually called Nasi Lemak, it is roughly translated to Rice Fat. When relating to the culture, that usually means coconut rice. It's an extremely common dish that's served pretty much everywhere: street vendors (garai), night markets (pasar malam), restaurants, and made in homes across the countries. Traditionally, it's wrapped in banana leaves and ...

Low Carb Sausage and Pepper Soup

Low Carb Sausage and Pepper Soup

I've been a fan of Hot Sausage and Pepper Soup for a long time. Even when I started the website, that was one of the first recipes I posted (so don't be in too much shock when you see a cell phone picture - oh, how we've come a long way). Since then, I wanted to bring the carb counts down two-fold for the recipe. Re-vamping it made an old favorite into a new, lower carb version. We've replaced all of the onion with onion powder, added a bit more meat to round out the fattiness, and taken ...

Low-Carb Chicken Curry

Low-Carb Chicken Curry

Probably one of the easiest Malaysian curries, Ayam Masak Lemak has been turned low-carb! It's missing a few high-carb ingredients from the original style, but this speaks for itself in terms of flavor. Directly translated: Ayam means chicken, Masak means cook, and Lemak means fat. So it means chicken cook fat. Typically when something is described as lemak (fat), it means the dish is creamy. Originally, Masak Lemak refers to a protein that's cooked in coconut milk and turmeric. The "fat" ...

Thai Chicken Zoodles

Thai Chicken Zoodles

This is a keto-fied version of Fried Noodles, or Mee Goreng, inspired by the Japanese version of Yaki Udon. These have a slight Indian influence on them since my friend is from Brunei. His mom used to get this for him whenever she went to the coffee shop, and he wanted to re-create it! The typical ingredients in this are ketchup, chili paste, potato, tomato, tofu, sweet and dark soy sauce, and it's served with a citrus and chili sauce. There are three well known versions of this: chicken, ...

Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

This recipe started out as a chicken, bacon and broccoli skillet meal - but it turned out that I had no broccoli in the fridge when I went to add it. As it was during a snow and ice storm, I couldn't just up and drive to the store - but the spinach came and saved the day! So, I decided to make it a bit heartier of a meal and transform it into a fully baked pot pie. Oh - and the taste? Fantastic. Not to toot my own horn, but I've already made this twice - it's that good. And yes, I only ...

Salmon with Tarragon Dill Cream Sauce

Salmon with Tarragon Dill Cream Sauce

There's nothing like fresh salmon that's been pan fried to crispy-skinned perfection. Done so that it just melts in your mouth as you take a bite, and explodes with flavor as you chew. The delicious cream sauce is subtly seasoned so the distinct flavor of the salmon still comes through. This would also go fantastic with some bacon wrapped asparagus on the side. Drizzle any leftover sauce on the asparagus for a truly beautiful meal! If you're making this for a significant other, they will ...

Creamy Butter Shrimp

Creamy Butter Shrimp

Asian and Indian style dishes are a staple in this house, as both of us have a long-standing weakness for Chinese takeout and Indian buffets. So, an Asian/Indian spin on a keto recipe is always a welcome addition to our recipe rotations, and this one is definitely a new favorite! I grabbed this recipe from my friend Hazim. Originally called Buttermilk Shrimp in his home country of Brunei, this was a dish that was served in resturants everywhere. He's worked hard to transform this dish into a ...

Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Popper Casserole

Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Popper Casserole

Jalapenos and buffalo chicken are a marriage of flavors that just had to be done. It's a flavor explosion that is oozing with rich and delicious cheese, and packed full of spiciness in every bite. Of course - you can't forget about bacon. Everything tastes better with bacon. I based this on a quick skillet meal that my girlfriend made me the other night. It was pretty much this, but in a pan - and I knew right then and there I had to make a casserole out of it. Both of us absolutely love ...

Orange and Sage Glazed Duck Breast

Orange and Sage Glazed Duck Breast

I know that duck is a bit extravagant and costly for most people out there, but I found some beautiful looking duck breasts in the co-op and decided that I had to try it. I'd never tried it or cooked it before, so I figured why not? If you're not the type that wants to use duck, you can easily sub the duck breast out for a chicken thigh. Just remember that chicken thighs want to go into a hot pan (rather than a cold pan, since there isn't as much fat to render), and that they take longer to ...

Perfect Ribeye Steak

Perfect Ribeye Steak

Tender, juicy, and melt in your mouth are the three things you always want to hear when you think of steak. Ribeye is one of the fattier cuts that always delivers on that and always stays juicy if you cook it right. Today, we're going to do exactly that, learn how to cook a perfect ribeye steak that'll make everyone want to come over to your house for dinner. Instead of using the grill to do our steak, we pan sear the outside at a very hot temperature. This creates a nice crust on the ...
