I love this dish.  It’s actually Keto Low-Carb Salmon & Brussels Sprouts. Before I decided to focus on my Keto Low-Carb path, I wrote about wine and food and the partnership between them for 30 years.  I often shared about the exquisite partnerships that could be created by keeping things simple.   Sometimes the simplest ingredient combinations can be delicious.  (When you add a glass of harmonizing wine…well that’s another story, more heavenly, and only for those maintaining a low-carb lifestyle.)

Last night I decided to keep things super simple and added nothing more than a drizzle of olive oil, heavy garlic, Brussels sprouts, salt, and pepper to my salmon dish.   What a wonderful combination of simple flavors.  I thinly sliced the Brussels sprouts because I’m not a huge fan of this vegetable.  But I eat it anyway, aware of its nutritional value and fiber.  I’m not a huge fan of cabbage either! By slicing the BS thinly, it added some lighter flavour and crunchy texture to the creamy salmon.  A lovely contrast of textures.

Two meals per week of fatty fish, such as salmon, can reduce your risk of fatal heart disease by 40%. A 3-ounce serving of salmon provides 1.9 grams of Omega-3 fatty acids.   Salmon is one of the best sources of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.  It’s also a great source of protein (3.5 ounces = 22 to 25 grams), vitamin B, potassium, and selenium.  Salmon contains the antioxidants that help to reduce high blood pressure, improve heart health, help to prevent diabetes, and aid in decreasing the risk of brain damage due to a stroke. 

The predominant taste sensation of this Keto Low-Carb Salmon and Brussels Sprouts is fattiness from the salmon, and pleasant bitterness from the heavy garlic. 

With the predominant taste sensation of Keto Low-Carb Salmon and Brussels Sprouts being fattiness from this oily fish, this dish demands a white wine with loads of viscosity to match. Viscosity is thickness.   Hunt for a buttery Chardonnay or Viognier.   The wine’s creaminess will harmonize with the oily texture of salmon.

WINE TIPS:
ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
