Keto Cashew Salmon

by S Fish February 11, 2019

Keto Cashew Salmon

This Keto Cashew Salmon is incredibly delicious! Made with a dairy-free cashew, cilantro pesto and cooked in a skillet, it’s a simple recipe that tastes complicated.


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 90 minutes

Yield: 2 servings



  • 2 salmon fillets, thawed
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup cilantro (or parsley)
  • 3 tbsp. avocado oil for the pesto
  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil for the salmon
  • Cilantro leaves for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It

  1. Add the cashews, cilantro and avocado oil to a food processor. Process on high until the mixture becomes crumbly. It should slightly hold together when you press it between your fingers.
  2. To a skillet, add the 1 tablespoon of avocado oil to it for the salmon and bring to a medium heat.
  3. Remove the mixture from the food processor and divide in half. Place each half over the flesh of the salmon and gently press into the salmon until it sticks.
  4. Place both filets in the skillet, skin-side down and cook 5 minutes. Then cover and cook another 5 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately with cilantro leaves over the top for garnish.
