Salmon is a wonderfully health-conscious protein, containing Omega-3 fatty acids that act as an anti-inflammatory and promote healthy heart and brain function. It’s also easy to cook—not to mention delicious! Coat it in the spice rub and sear in a skillet until it’s golden on the outside for a melt-in-your-mouth tender finish.

 Homemade salsa is the perfect accompaniment to the Southwest salmon, complementing creamy with tangy. In fact, salsa is an ideal go-to when you’re looking for something fresh but want a change from greens. Combine healthy fat-filled avocado with tomato and onion then top with cilantro and chili pepper or jalapeno (if you enjoy a bit of spice). Play around and substitute with other herbs or fruits to your liking for endless flavors and possibilities. That’s all there is to it!

Add a drizzle of lime juice to finish and voilà: a quick, light, easy, and tasty keto-friendly meal that packs a health punch while keeping things fresh and delicious. This taste of the Southwest is sure to become one of your staples, and it’s so easy to experiment with that you’ll never get bored. Enjoy!
