Creamy Baked Salmon with Spinach & Tomatoes

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 am my own worst critic and often make and remake dishes plenty of times before I write up the recipe and post them. 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 (my favourite one is Eat Water’s ‘fettucine’). 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..

Keto Salmon Eggs Benedict

This is a mighty big breakfast where each serving is exactly as pictured: two halves of the toasted Keto Breakfast Muffins recipe, topped with smoked salmon and two perfectly poached eggs, then the whole lot is smothered in Keto Hollandaise Sauce. A ‘keto salmon eggs benedict’, I called it. As the pic shows, its a generous meal (at only 3g carbs!) and good enough any time of the day, so tuck in!

Steak Tagliata

Beef Tagliata

I know summer is still a while away here up north, but this is a great idea for you to bookmark if you are cooking for one and can’t be bothered with an accompanying sauce or cooking up vegetables. After frying the steak to perfection (I hope your perfection is the same as my perfection: medium-rare) and leaving it to rest, I simply deglazed the pan with lemon juice and used the zingy rendered juices from the pan (after cooling a little) and tossed it with wild rocket (arugula). The steak tagliata only requires a generous scattering of salt flakes and finely shaved Parmesan. If you have a microplane, finely grate a little lemon zest into the salad too. Winner winner singleton’s dinner!

Spicy Low-carb Cottage Pie

When I was young, Cottage Pie was one of the first things I learnt to make. Its dead-easy and the humble flavours make it such a hearty, welcome dinner – you simply can’t go wrong. I added cayenne pepper into the beef to give it some kick, but that is entirely optional (especially if you are cooking for the kids). Top your cooked mince with creamy cauliflower mash and cover the lot in grated cheese before popping in the oven to melt and gratin. Lush! A perfect, guilt-free low-carb cottage pie. Step-by-step pics to help you along…

Buttered Asparagus with Parmesan

Keto Buttered Asparagus

OK, let’s be honest here.. everything tastes better with butter and this is merely an idea with some cheffy techniques added to help you prepare perfect buttered asparagus (and macros calculated to help you along). If you are okay with your urine smelling funky for a day, try this super-simple recipe. And if you don’t suffer from bizarre-smelling urine after eating asparagus, consider yourself a very small percentage of the population. (I will leave you to Google what I am on about, if you don’t already know.) Enjoy this lovely, easy side dish #EatYourGreens!!

This is a rich, deeply-flavoured family chicken dish. Funnyman and I love spicy food so I added a whopping half tablespoon of ground cayenne pepper which added a satisfying ‘kick’, but you can omit it if you are cooking this for kids, or reduce the amount for the those who don’t like spicy food. This creamy chicken dish can be enjoyed over Cauliflower Mash, Cauliflower Rice or shirataki / konjac noodles… It’s absolutely delicious!

Ham & Gruyere Rolls (using Fathead Dough)

Fathead Ham and Gruyere Rolls

I did an Instagram snapshot of me tucking into my recipe trial of these Ham & Gruyere Rolls (using Fathead Dough) last week. It was so well-received, I simply had to post the perfected recipe earlier than scheduled. Oh, how we love the Fathead Dough base! Here I used it (somewhat altered) to create deli ham and (powerfully-flavoured) Gruyere cheese rolls… and the results are simply amazing. One roll is very rich and filling and comes in at only 3.8g carbs per roll! Some struggle with perfecting the Fathead dough technique, but I have added step-by-step pics below to help you along…
