Creamy Baked Salmon with Spinach & Tomatoes (Keto)

Salmon Baked in Cream

Funnyman tasted this salmon with spinach bake and said “babes, you don’t get older – you just get better!” Ha! I love hearing that because I am my own worst critic and often make and remake dishes plenty of times before I write up the recipe and post them here on Fats of Life. This lovely dish has such simple, readily-available ingredients. The salmon is quickly fried skin-side down, then baked in a warm cream containing spinach and cherry tomatoes. It would be lovely served over Cauliflower Rice, Cauliflower Mash or any konjac/shirataki noodles that take your fancy. I kept the skin on the salmon (which helps hold the fish together) but it softens when baking and you will likely skip it when dishing up. The acidity of the lemon squeezed over at the end is essential, so don’t forget about it. On the subject of tomatoes, here is a great little article on planting and growing cherry tomatoes!

I have taken this delicious recipe off the blog, because I worked very hard to bring you a new-and-improved version of it, which now features in my lovely cookbook KETO KITCHEN (page 53) - which is available worldwide in full-colour paperback or digital (e-book).
