Blackened Salmon with Peach & Avocado Salsa

Blackened Salmon with Peach & Avocado Salsa is Keto, Gluten Free, Paleo and Whole30

Eating fish is super important to me and my health goals so I make salmon at least once a week (usually more). However, I’ve been getting a little bored of the typical lemon garlic salmon and wanted to shake things up a bit! Plus Phoenix is heating up with spring rapidly turning into summer which makes me start thinking citrus and all things “summery” so I thought I’d try something a little different…

When you think of keto you don’t necessarily think of fruits. In fact it’s drilled upon us to avoid them at all costs. I follow more of a paleo keto diet and adding in SMALL amounts of fresh fruits are okay. In fact they add flavor and natural sweetness better than any other alternative. And again, it’s fine as long as you are counting your carbs and using SMALL amounts. I’m not saying to go eat a whole mango, but I am saying if you are an experienced keto dieter that you can definitely use 1/4 of a peach in a salsa and not fuel the fire of inflammation.

If you are struggling with chronic health issues and just getting started I would forgo the fruit for now until your body adapts and you are more experienced in producing ketones. As always listen to your body and give it what it need at this moment in time.
