Keto Low-Carb Salmon Lemon Honey is gourmet delight without all the work and headache!

I’m a fan of fresh salmon!  In fact, I cook fish a couple of times per month.  In my city and in being from Ontario, Canada, we have access to buying Atlantic salmon from the southern coasts of our provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and the island portion of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Fresh Canadian pacific salmon is more difficult to find and sold at a decent price.

When buying salmon, make sure it is MSC certified (Marine Stewardship Council).  This certification ensures the fish is wild, traceable, and sustainable. The bluefish label is only applied to wild fish or seafood from fisheries that have been certified to the MSC Fisheries Standard, a science-based set of requirements for sustainable fishing. If this certification is not available in your area, do some research to find a suitable one.

When shopping, hunt for salmon that smells fresh, is moist and shiny, an indicator of freshness.  Brown spots on the flesh or around the filet may be a sign of spoiling.

Salmon can be served in a variety of ways and in recipes, depending on how it is cooked.

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO SALMON LEMON HONEY?

What are the nutritional and health benefits of Keto Salmon Lemon Honey? I cannot underestimate the nutritional and health benefits of fresh salmon.  Two meals per week of fatty fish, such as salmon, can reduce your risk of fatal heart disease by 40%.  Salmon is a delicious and nutritious fish that is enjoyed all over the world. It is rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, making it an excellent addition to a healthy diet.

A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving of cooked salmon provides approximately 206 calories, 22 grams of protein, 14 grams of fat, and zero carbohydrates. In addition to this, salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining a healthy heart and brain. It also contains significant amounts of vitamin B12, vitamin D, and selenium, which are important for maintaining healthy skin, bones, and immune function. Furthermore, salmon is also a good source of potassium, which helps to regulate blood pressure, and contains antioxidants that may help to reduce inflammation in the body.

Salmon is a highly nutritious and healthy food that is packed with essential nutrients and vitamins. Eating salmon regularly can have a significant impact on your overall health.

Here are some of the health benefits of salmon:

  1. Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for heart health. These fatty acids can help reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and decrease the risk of heart disease.
  2. High in Protein: Salmon is a great source of high-quality protein, which is important for building and repairing tissues in the body. Protein also helps keep you feeling full and satisfied, which can aid in weight management.
  3. Good Source of B Vitamins: Salmon is rich in B vitamins, including B12, which is essential for brain function and the production of red blood cells. B vitamins also play a role in energy metabolism and can help reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases.
  4. Supports Brain Health: The omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon are important for brain health and can help improve cognitive function and memory. Salmon also contains vitamin D, which has been shown to improve mood and reduce the risk of depression.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO SALMON LEMON HONEY?

The predominant taste sensations of Keto Salmon Lemon Honey are fattiness (salmon), sweetness (Keto Honey), and tanginess (fresh lemon) Fresh thyme has a distinct and robust flavor that is a little sweet, earthy, and slightly minty.

WHAT NON ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO SALMON LEMON HONEY?

While Keto Salmon Lemon Honey offers some tanginess from the fresh lemon, it’s important to consider the sweetness first.  The pleasant sweetness in the sauce calls for a white, non alcoholic wine with some sweetness to match.  In following a Keto diet or in living a low-carb lifestyle, we don’t want to use up carbs on a glass of non-alc wine. So you have a couple of options.

Drink whatever you like and don’t worry about pairing the non-alc wine to the dish.  Enjoy your wine the way you like it. Or, if you like to create harmony between the wine and the food, you’ll need some sweetness in the wine.  Add a pinch of monk fruit sweetener to your glass.  Choose a fruity, non alcoholic white with some creamy texture  to match the fattiness of salmon.

Examples include de-alcoholized Chardonnay. So, you’ll have a wine with some sweetness to harmonize with the honey flavor. The other option is to change the honey to maple.  Use maple extract with the lemon juice. Forgo the sweetener.  With no sweetness, you can pair the salmon with lemon maple flavor without the sweetness and choose a light, fruity red like de-alcoholized Pinot Noir.

Zero Alcohol 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.
