Warm spices make this Moroccan salmon dish a delicious meal. Quick, easy and full of flavour, this low carb dish is great served with a side of cauliflower couscous.
The nicest thing for me is the smell in the kitchen of the cooked spices. No fish scents either which is always a bonus for me!
How to make keto Moroccan Salmon
I have used this spice combination for chicken, so thought I would use them with salmon too. The salmon is smothered with spicy onions and tomatoes and baked.
The spice mix is a simple combination of:
- Turmeric (for a golden yellow colour too)
- All Spice
- Salt & Pepper
This salmon dish can be reheated. Cover the dish with foil and reheat in the oven at 320F degrees for 15 minutes.
I used skinless salmon fillets but if you want salmon with the skin on, flash fry the fillets skin down for extra crispiness.
Serve with low carb pita bread to dip into the spicy sauce.
