Low Carb Smoked Salmon Pâté


Low Carb Smoked Salmon Pâté recipe. 200g yield and 4g net carbs for the lot.

Incredible flavour and superb health profile. A fine example of CLEAN KETO living. Making it is child’s play. Just ONE easy step. No cooking. No waiting. Simply whiz ingredients and you’re done.

The most difficult part will be deciding when to eat it and what to have it with. Lettuce? Cucumber slices? Roasted sweet peppers? Mmmhh… For me, it has to be toasted bread. If you haven’t tried my Amazing Protein Bread Loaf, I urge you to. With only 0.7g net carbs per slice, you’ll have a hard time finding a better choice.

Ingredients + How to Make Low Carb Smoked Salmon Pâté

Everything you need can easily be sourced in your local supermarket. Good quality smoked salmon, cream cheese, crème fraîche, lemon, horseradish sauce, and seasoning.

Capers and fresh dill are optional. But I highly recommend them. The capers in particular add a touch of pleasant tartness to an otherwise very creamy pâté. They can be blitzed in, or placed on top for a pretty presentation. Same goes for the dill.

And if you can’t get crème fraîche in your part of the world, sour cream will do just fine.

The only kitchen gadget you’ll need is a food processor. I like to use the mini one that comes with my immersion (stick) blender/whisk. It’s small, so it’s ideal for the amount you’ll be blitzing. And you’ll have less washing up to do too.
