Being low carb/keto, we are always looking for sources of fat (energy). I even know someone that eats packets of coconut oil just to have enough energy while being keto. While that’s all well and good, we prefer something with a little more flavor to it. So what better source than having one that packs proteins, omega 3s, and tastes delicious! That source would be salmon belly! If you are familiar with sushi, then you may have heard of ‘toro’. Well, this is the ‘toro’ of the salmon (toro is just belly meat). Salmon belly by itself does taste pretty plain, but do not worry! We have a simple recipe right here that will bring out the best in this cut of fish.
This recipe is keto approved with 0g of carbs, so make as many as you would like! This dish offers a melting of salmon oils balanced by the flavors yuzu soy sauce.
You will need yuzu and salmon belly for this recipe. The salmon belly you usually can pick up at a Japanese or other Asian supermarkets. You also might be able to request some from the fish department at a local market if they fillet their own fish. Lastly, we use a toaster oven but a standard oven will work fine as well (we prefer the toaster oven because there’s no preheating).
Now, let’s get started!
