Best-ever Keto Smoked Salmon Salad

Keto Best Smoked Salmon Salad

This has to be one of my favourite salads to throw together. Apart from the deliciously fatty salmon and avocado generously covered in fresh lemon juice, it boasts capers, toasted pine nuts and shaved Parmesan: that’s just about all my favourite ingredients in one fairly posh salad. Smoked salmon brings back such fond memories for me, I worked on a cruise ship in Alaska in my early twenties and we had smoked salmon on-tap. It was excellent quality and it was bliss! Now, just to be clear, working on cruise ships may sound glamorous, but its not. At least, it wasn’t for me. I was hired as a photographer, but the small print indicated that I also had to dress up in giant animal outfits and have my picture taken with guests like a port mascot on most days. See below for more on that!

When we docked in Ketchikan on Wednesdays, I was a beaver (see pics below for proof!); on Thursdays in Juneau, I was either a moose or a polar bear. Every Friday, at the tender port of Sitka, I was a bald eagle… And every second Monday when we docked in Vancouver, I was fully-kitted out as a Mountie. Thankfully, Saturdays were sea days, so I was spared the humiliation of kids trying to knock my giant beaver head off.

Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
