Miso Salmon Marinade w/Cauliflower Rice


Jump to Recipe

Fish is a great choice for the low-carb/keto lifestyle since it offers plenty omegas and proteins, and of course being Asian, we do have a lot of fish recipes!   This one that we will be sharing today is actually a very traditional Japanese marinade that in my opinion, is pretty much perfect.  It is balanced, full of umami and really makes the fish ‘buttery’ through its miso marination!  You can use this for all kinds of fish (with ratio adjustments that we will be sharing in the future), but today we selected salmon since it is widely accessible to everyone.  The one thing to note about this marination is that it takes 24-36 hours (don’t go over 36 hours), so we recommend making a batch and after the fridge marination, throw it in the freezer and it should hold for 2-3 months.

This dish is a great low-carb/keto choice at only ~3 g carbs per serving with plenty of omegas and great fats to offer!  The taste is a perfect balance of umami and savory salty miso flavors.  Paired w/cauliflower rice, it really brings a perfect balance.
