Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Start with the lime mayonnaise. Stir in the lime juice and the zest into the mayonnaise. Add salt to taste. Set aside until serving.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan or a wok on fairly high heat. Add cabbage, curry paste, and water. Sauté until the cabbage has softened, but is still chewy. Stir thoroughly. Salt and pepper. Add the sesame oil towards the end and keep hot while frying the salmon.
  3. Season the salmon with salt and pepper on both sides. Add the sesame seeds to a plate and dip the salmon to cover.
  4. Fry the salmon in coconut oil on medium-high heat for a couple of minutes on each side. Pour fat/juices over the salmon during cooking in order to keep it warm and moist.
  5. Serve the salmon with curry cabbage, lime mayonnaise, and a lime wedge.

Tip!

Let the salmon sit at room temperature before frying, so it's not cold when you add it to the frying pan. If you add a piece of cold salmon to your pan the temperature drops, and you will end up with boiled fish instead of sautéed.

You could also add cilantro to the mayo, for an extra depth of flavor!

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    My husband and I both enjoyed this dinner very much. The lime mayo was very good with the sesame salmon. I am full and content right now with no need to eat anything sweet. I had green beans already cooked so used them instead of the cabbage. They weren't our favorite recipe. The dinner went together very quickly.
