Keto Steamed Salmon with Spinach and Mushrooms

We all know that wild salmon is delicious, on top of being extremely healthy. This time we’re proposing you a recipe that combines steamed salmon with spinach and mushrooms, making it an easy-to-make, well-rounded, filling and healthy keto dinner (or lunch).

Whenever possible, we advise you to choose wild salmon instead of farmed – it has more iron, calcium and potassium, and farmed salmon is often treated with antibiotics and contains different contaminants.

This recipe is extremely easy to make; the only delicate thing about it is the timing, so that you don’t end up with cold salmon and hot spinach and mushrooms.

This is why we advise you to cook the spinach, mushrooms, and, if possible, the cream, while the salmon is steaming. Alternatively, you can cook the spinach and the mushrooms in the same pot (by putting the mushrooms 2 minutes before the spinach).

Cooking the vegetables in butter is an excellent way to give them flavour while keeping your macros in check. Butter burns quickly, though, so you need to put the vegetables in right after it has melted.
