On the carnivore diet (and any diet) it’s critical to get enough essential fatty acids like the ones found in seafood 🍣
King salmon is a fabulous choice and is packed with omega 3s DHA and EPA! We try to include it in our diet at least weekly, and I have perfected the quickest and easiest way to make this chore of eating all the nutrients into a treat 🌈 and the skin gets very crispy too (make sure to eat it since that is where much Of the fatty acids and collagen is) 😅
The fastest way is to cut the salmon filets into strips but you can also use the whole filet, just adjust the cooking time.
I like to use my outdoor air-fryer to avoid any fishy indoor smells, but you can also pan sear, I would use some butter to fry them!
If you’re not a strict carnivore I highly recommend my moms super simple Tartar sauce, carnivores can make a hollandaise (recipe coming) or Jahr use butter 🧈
For 1 portion:
8 ounces king salmon cut into 2 ounce strips 🍣
Salt for seasoning 🧂
Optional butter for frying 🧈
2 tablespoons MCT Oil Mayo 🥛
2-3 diced pickle slices 🥒
1 teaspoon mustard
Preheat the air-fryer to 400°F for about 5 minutes or alternatively heat up butter in a pan.
Slice the salmon and pat it dry, this is key for crispy skin. Salt it with high quality sea salt 🧂
Cook the salmon for 5 minutes total, flipping halfway. This way it’s cooked but still stays moist. While it’s cooking, make your sauce by mixing all the ingredients together!
Enjoy your salmon strips with the dip!
