Healthy Keto Salmon PatéPinFollow us 133.3k

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 1/2 cups)

  • 2 small salmon fillets (240 g/ 8.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp ghee (you can make your own)
  • 1 small red onion (60 g/ 2.1 oz)
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts (50 g/ 1.8 oz)
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise (30 g/ 1.1 oz) - you can make your own
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese (120 g/ 4.2 oz)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt (I like pink Himalayan)
  • freshly ground black pepper

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).


  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. Healthy Keto Salmon Paté
  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. Healthy Keto Salmon Paté
  3. Add the onion, pecan nuts, mayonnaise,... Healthy Keto Salmon Paté

  5. Pulse for a few seconds until desired consistency is reached. Healthy Keto Salmon Paté

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I really like your recipes they looked so delicious! I will check your sight for more ideas. Thank you 🙏🏻


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 😉 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!


WOWWZERS!! This sounds sooo awesome! Im going to try the spinach crackers tomorrow and this also. Do you think it will be okay to use the Salmon in a can? I just happen to have a can in my pantry! Im happy I stumbled across your blog. Lots of recipes will be pinned 😊 Thanks for sharing!


Yes JoAnn, you can use canned salmon too 😊 Thank you - hope you like them!


omg I can't wait for those green crackers they look scrumptious!!


Thanks Emily!


This sounds awesome! I love throwing nuts in where ever I can!


And it works with walnuts too! 😊
