This keto Salmon BLT is an awesome low-carb and grain-free sandwich! There’s quite a few variations you could do as well:

  • Mix chipotles in adobo into the mayo
  • Add chile powder and lime juice to the mayo
  • Add fresh or roasted garlic to the mayo
  • Add sliced avocado to the sandwich
  • Add a slice of cheese such as cheddar, provolone or manchego

I could go on and on with a million different ideas, leave yours in the comments below!

We used the all-time favorite Keto Buns recipe for the bread here and they are perfect! I love keeping a batch of the on hand during the week for easy sandwiches. This low-carb bread recipe is ideal for meal prep and healthy lunchboxes.

With less than 6 grams of net carbs, over 40 grams of protein and 60 grams of fat, this meal is ideal for those who practice intermittent fasting and need a nutritious meal to break their fasting window.

  • 1 Ultimate Keto Bun - see other suggestions below
  • 1 small salmon fillet (115 g/ 4 oz)

  • 2 slices bacon (60 g/ 2.1 oz)
