The key to lock in flavor for ketogenic recipes is obviously the fat. You need to be generous with the fat, especially when it’s low in carbohydrates, so that you still feel satisfied eating it. I added a decent amount of olive oil, along with plenty of herbs and spices, to complement the salmon and spice up the zucchini and mushroom noodles!

The main flavors of this keto salmon and zoodle dish: thyme, garlic, and rosemary! It really goes well with the organic olive oil. I really do make a point about buying high quality fats. It’s extremely important. Fats are basically the carriers of other macronutrients and micronutrients to the various systems of your body.

There are absolutely ways to make this affordable, which is why I love and use Pompeian. They have a great organic extra virgin olive oil and olive oil spray!

I also recommend buying your salmon wild-caught. It’s obviously more of a seasonal protein, so your fish market or grocery store should have it in season in the summer, but you can also buy it frozen!

So back to this keto salmon and zoodle recipe! You can definitely swap in whatever mushrooms you prefer, but I honestly love Maitake mushrooms. They’re very rich in vitamins B and C. Plus they’re just packed with flavor.

I also paired this meal with a dollop of my paleo vegan cauliflower Alfredo that just so happens to be ketogenic as well! You can smear it on top of the salmon, like I did, for extra flavor!

Now for the zoodles. You can totally buy your zucchini noodles pre-spiraled. However, I always think it tastes better (and fresher) when you spiral them yourself! The trick for making them maintain their shape and sturdiness is making sure to cook the zoodles lightly in the pan, and only for a little!

So I highly recommend cooking the mushrooms and garlic really well first. Then add in the raw zucchini noodles to cook for only a few minutes. You can also eat zucchini noodles raw, but they’ll taste better heated up a bit 😉

This keto salmon and zoodle dish comes in handy when you’re in a pinch! Everything is on the table in under 30 minutes, which really helps when you’re having a busy week and just want the dang dinner! Anyone else relate?

Maybe it’s just me haha!

Anyways, I hope you love the recipe!
