Keto Salmon and “Rice” Cauliflower

Keto Salmon and “Rice” Cauliflower

Sometimes simple is best! This Keto Salmon and “Rice” Cauliflower meal was indeed simple! However, the salmon was still delicious, tender, and bursting with flavor. The salmon was cooked with butter, garlic and rosemary. I took the recipe a step further by incorporating a homemade garlic mayo sauce, including flavors such as cayenne, paprika, and parsley.

Riced Cauliflower

To complement the salmon, riced cauliflower is incorporated. If you have frozen riced cauliflower, even better! It’ll make your preparation even quicker. I paired the rice with a bit of cream cheese, to make it a more filling and flavorful meal. I am pretty much hooked on creamy cauliflower rice. Of course, it’s something that is perfect at any time.

Side Options & Macros

This recipe will make a great lunch or dinner. If you have macros to spare, or carbs to spare, then asparagus would also pair lovely with this meal! This could also make a really great ‘one meal a day’ option, as long as enough calories are included. You could add more butter, etc. With the ingredients, plenty of fat is included by default!

  • Bake for 20-30 minutes. You will know when your salmon is done by how easy it is to flake. You can also use a thermometer to confirm your salmon is thoroughly cooked (which is recommended). Salmon is fully cooked when it reaches a temperature of 145 degrees F, or 63 degrees C.

Rice:

  • Microwave your riced cauliflower, according to the packages' instructions. Once out of microwave, move to bowl and immediately add cream cheese so that it can melt and thoroughly mix together. Season with all spices: salt, pepper, and parsley.

Garlic Mayo Sauce:

  • In a small mixing bowl, add garlic mayo. Generously season with salt, pepper, paprika, small amount of cayenne, and parsley. If sauce is to thick, you can thin it with water. Serve over your salmon and rice and Enjoy!
