I think you’ll love Keto Bacon-Wrapped Salmon Asparagus.

On our Keto journey, Shawn and I savor fresh salmon frequently. It’s a great source of healthy fats and protein. This Bacon-Wrapped Salmon with Tarragon recipe caught my eye in my email news feed. It reminded me of a summer BBQ favorite where I grill salmon on a bed of asparagus in foil wraps. Combining these recipes, I decided to make bacon-wrapped salmon and asparagus.

The trickiest part? Finding compliant bacon. This means bacon without sugar, nitrates, fillers, carrageenan, or MSG. Sodium nitrate, used as a preservative, can lead to increased sodium intake, heart disease, and arterial issues.

You can opt for nitrate-free bacon brands or make your own at home. Look for “uncured bacon” labels. Some recommended brands include:

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO BACON-WRAPPED SALMON  ASPARAGUS?

Let’s delve into the nutritional benefits of Keto Bacon-Wrapped Salmon Asparagus. Eating fatty fish like salmon twice a week can slash your risk of fatal heart disease by 40%. A 3-ounce serving of salmon packs 1.9 grams of Omega-3 fatty acids, making it an exceptional source of EPA and DHA. Salmon boasts a rich protein content, packing 22 to 25 grams in just 3.5 ounces, along with vital nutrients like vitamin B, potassium, and selenium.Its antioxidants aid in lowering blood pressure, boosting heart health, warding off diabetes, and reducing the risk of stroke-induced brain damage.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO BACON-WRAPPED SALMON ASPARAGUS?

KETO BACON WRAPPED SALMON & ASPARAGUS

Bake at 400F for about 25 to 30 minutes until bacon is crispy. If desired, place under broiler to make crispier.

The predominant taste sensations of Keto Low-Carb Bacon-Wrapped Salmon Asparagus are fattiness (from the salmon) and saltiness (from the bacon).  A delicious combination.

WHAT NON ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB BACON-WRAPPED SALMON ASPARAGUS?

Amidst the rich and salty flavors of Keto Bacon-Wrapped Salmon Asparagus, consider pairing it with a full-bodied white like de-alcoholized Chardonnay or a light, fruity red such as de-alcoholized Pinot Noir. The acidity in these wines will beautifully complement the bacon’s saltiness and richness.

Zero Alcohol Wine Tips:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

For Keto or low-carb diets, it’s advisable to choose high-quality, low-carb, and low-sugar non-alcoholic wines. Alcohol isn’t conducive to these diets as it interrupts ketosis by prioritizing alcohol metabolism over nutrient processing. This can hinder fat burning and promote the storage of excess carbs, fat, and protein as body fat. Moreover, alcohol can stimulate appetite, potentially leading to overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Consequently, alcohol consumption taxes the liver, increasing the risk of inflammation and certain cancers, particularly with heavy use. It also disrupts blood sugar levels, causing dehydration and disrupting normal bodily functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Opting for non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar supports weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration. These wines contain nutrients and antioxidants from grapes, reducing the risk of conditions like heart disease. Plus, sans alcohol, they’re perfect for social occasions, fostering happiness and reducing stress.

Description

Keto Bacon-Wrapped Salmon Asparagus is no doubt one of the easiest and tastiest dishes I prepare for my husband and I on a regular basis.  You can serve this salmon during the week or for a special loved one.  Passes off as “gourmet.”  Loads of richness from the healthy fat of salmon and enjoyable fat from the sugr-free bacon.  I added asparagus to make sure you get your greens!  LOL.  The recipe includes salmon, sugar free bacon, asparagus, and black pepper.  You get enough saltiness from the bacon.


Ingredients

Units Scale

1 pound salmon filet (cut into 4 fillets, each 4 ounces)

24 slices sugar-free bacon (turkey bacon for Heart Healthy)

24 asparagus spears, cleaned and snapped

Freshly ground black pepper to taste


Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F.  Line baking sheet with parchment.  Cut filet into 4 pieces, each about 1.5 to 2” wide.  Place 6 asparagus spears under salmon filet.  Wrap tightly in bacon, needing from 4 to 6 pieces each.  Secure bacon with toothpicks if required.  Lay bacon-wrapped salmon on parchment.  Season with black pepper.
  • Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until bacon is crispy.  Place under the broiler if you want bacon crispier without drying out the salmon.
