Healthy Keto Salmon Paté

This paté is super healthy and perfect for low-carb eating. It's made with fatty fish high in omega 3 fatty acids and works great with both baked and smoked salmon. Pecans add a chunkier texture and go well with salmon. I made the paté with some Cheesy Spinach Crackers which I will share with you very soon :-)

Ingredients (makes 6-10 servings, ~ 2 ½ cups):

This recipe serves 6 as a started or 10 as a dip. When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 F / 400 F. Place the salmon filets on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with ghee and transfer into the oven for 20-25 minutes. When done, remove from the oven and let it cool down. Then, peel and discard the skin.
  2. Peel and slice the garlic and dice the onion. Place the cooked salmon and garlic into a food processor and pulse until smooth.
    To keep the paté chunky, I added the onion and pecans after the garlic & salmon were blended.
  3. Add the onion, pecan nuts, mayonnaise,...
  4. ... cream cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  5. Pulse for a few seconds until desired consistency is reached.
  6. Spoon the paté into a bowl and add freshly chopped parsley. Mix until well combined. Serve immediately and cover with a wrap and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Serve on top of low-carb bread, with breadsticks, tortilla chips or crackers (recipe for Cheesy Spinach Crackers will be posted soon!)

I just made this, and it is wonderfully tasty.  But I think I over processed it, since it is just pink paste.  I added a like Dijon mustard for extra kick.  It is like a salmon flavored Philly cream cheese, rather than a pate.  Your food always looks better than mine.

Thank you Gail, taste is always what matters most Wink If you prefer it more flaky, I suggest you first blend the nuts to a desired consistency - 5-10 seconds for crumbly, add minced garlic and then add the remaining ingredients including the cooked salmon and pulse for only 3-5 seconds. Hope this helps!
