Salmon with Tarragon Dill Cream Sauce

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

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 really appreciate the time and effort you put into the dish and love every single bite of it. It’s up to standard with what I’ve had in restaurants before, and it’s about one third of the price you’ll pay!

If you’re more of a fan of cold sauces on hot food – you can always do this with mayonnaise and the spices included in the sauce (instead of butter and heavy cream). This way you can get a great consistency on the sauce and be able to serve it by the spoonful over your salmon.

Note: I like my flavors to be quite strong, so if you’re not a fan of very in-your-face flavors, make sure to use 3/4 tsp. spices instead of 1 tsp. when seasoning the fish. I think that most people like the same flavor strength as I do, but I just wanted to add it in there if you prefer milder spices.
