Savory Salmon Fat Bombs

For a fat bomb, this recipe is quite unique as most tend to be sweet. Not everyone can eat low-carb sweeteners and that's why I've created this savoury treat. Just like my Savory Fat Bombs (from the KetoDiet apps), these are easy to prepare and can be eaten on top of crunchy lettuce leaves or with any type of low-carb bread. Hope you like them - please, let me know by leaving a comment! :-)

Macronutrient ratio: Calories from carbs (1.8%), protein (8%), fat (90.2%).

Ingredients (makes 6 servings):

  • ½ cup full-fat cream cheese (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • ⅓ cup butter, grass-fed (75 g / 2.7 oz)
  • ½ package smoked salmon or smoked mackerel (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1-2 tbsp freshly chopped dill (or 1 tsp dried) - skip if using mackerel
  • optionally: pinch salt (I like pink Himalayan)

When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

Instructions:

  1. Place the cream cheese, butter and smoked salmon into a food processor.
  2. Add fresh lemon juice and dill and pulse until smooth. I'm using my Kenwood mixer with a food processor attachment.
  3. Line a tray with parchment paper and create small fat bombs using about 2 ½ tablespoons of the mixture per piece. Garnish with more dill and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours or until firm.
  4. Alternatively, simply spoon the mixture into an airtight container. Eat immediately or store in the fridge for up to a week. When ready to be served, just spoon out about 2 ½ tablespoons per serving. Eat on top of crunchy lettuce leaves or as spread on top of Ultimate Keto Buns, Healthy Low-carb Bagels or Low-carb "Rye" bread.

can the salmon fat bombs be frozen?

Reply

Hi Susan, yes they can. When ready to be used, place them in the fridge to defrost overnight.

I was wondering if anyone has tried coconut oil instead of butter?

Reply

I think so, I'm just not sure about the coconut flavour it may give it. Let me know if you try it! Smile

I just made this and it is FANTASTIC!! I didn't have quite enough regular cream cheese, so I added a little chive and onion cream cheese. So, sooo good on top of some Trader Joe's low carb toast! Thanks for the recipe :-D

Thank you Tekesha! Smile

Always associated fat bombs with the sweet ones, but boy do those look good! I love the philly smoked salmon cream cheese, but why buy it when I can make a better tasting and healthier (less preservatives)version!
Going to have to give this one a try, thanks for the recipe!

Love this, as my son, his wife and myself are on a low carb diet.  Will try this with canned red salmon.  Thanks for your recipe.

Thanks Mary!

I eat something very similar to this recipe as a dip for celery sticks--since I can't do dairy, I replace the cream cheese with mayo, and use bacon grease or lard instead of butter.  Mustard or pico de gallo goes in instead of dill.

Sounds delicious, thanks for the dairy-free tip! Smile

Wow! Thanks so much for this!  I can't wait to try them!  I like a sweet fat bomb every now and then but I really don't have a sweet tooth.  These sound awesome!!

Reply

Thank you Brook!! Smile

oh, how awesome, I will make a second batch like that!  celery with some sort of fat is my new snack every day.  Keeps my protein levels in check!  Thanks!

Hope you like them Nettie! Smile

These look really good, I have to find a smoked salmon that isn't smoked with sugar in the ingredients. I will definitely make these up and eat them with great pleasure. It's stuff like this that makes the diet easy.

Reply

Thank you Sue!! I know what you mean, half of the products contain added sugar!

Reply

Couldn't  you use  cooked salmon? Instead of smoked. They look delish.

Reply

Hi Mel, sure! I haven't tried it but I don't see why not Smile

Reply

Thanks so much for posting this recipe!!! I don't use any sweeteners not even stevia so this is great for me. I'm planning to try fat fast and will definitely make these :-D

Thanks Monica Smile
