Keto Salmon with Radish Puree
Have you ever spent hours trawling the internet for a simple dinner recipe? To be honest, it’s hard enough finding a dinner that will suit your lifestyle, let alone one that is keto! So, with a huge thank you to Food For Living for letting us share this recipe, we now bring to you “The Best Keto Salmon with Radish Puree Recipe!” This recipe is so good, you can even make double at dinner and pile the leftovers into a container and take it it to work for lunch.

Seriously, if you make this recipe, and we permit you to call yourselves a keto master. The title is there for the taking.
So, now that you’re a keto master in training, let’s talk about the ingredients. Salmon is a given, but feel free to use a smoked filet if that takes your fancy. We also like to pair ours with quinoa, as it’s packed full of protein and barely contains any carbohydrates.
Now for the radish puree. It sounds super fancy, like something you would be served in a restaurant, but it’s actually really simple to make. All you need is radishes (yes, we still feel the need to mention them), sharp cheddar cheese and flavourings such as salt and pepper. Then all you do is boil the radishes, chuck them into a food blender with the cheese and seasonings, press “go” and ta-da! There is your sharp and tangy radish puree!
This recipe comes in at a tiny 388 calories, which is perfect for anyone watching their weight. And since it contains a massive 31 grams of protein, it’ll be hard to find a recipe anywhere on the worldwide web that has this sort of nutrition. Carbs come in quite high at 14 grams, but this is mostly due to the quinoa. So if that figure is too high for any keto-ers out there, feel free to leave it out. But finally, keto lovers can rejoice, as this recipe contains a whopping 14 grams of fat. Perfect for getting your macros in check!
So, now that we’ve got your taste-buds tingling, open that blender and finally become the ultimate keto master!
