Healthy, creamy, and simply delicious! This is probably my favorite new way to cook shrimp and salmon.  I love a quick, family-friendly recipe. On weeknights especially I need something I can cook fast and feed my starving family. 

I don’t just want quick and simple dinners though. I also need a healthy dinner to feed my family. We can all too easily fall into the trap of frozen meals and take out. Which, some nights I absolutely love. I am a sucker for a frozen dinner, but most nights I want to cook something fresh and healthy for my family. 

Creamy Salmon and Shrimp

In my quest to make simple and healthy meals for my family, I ended up discovering a new favorite! Seafood has always been a favorite in my house. We love shrimp, salmon, and all manner of delicious seafood dishes. I mean, you can’t be a Floridian without loving seafood right? 

This creamy salmon and shrimp is perfection. Only took less than 30 minutes to make, and it is low carb and keto-friendly!

Tips for Pan Frying Salmon

how to pan fry salmon

This recipe calls for pan-searing your salmon.  As someone who almost always bakes my salmon, I honestly wasn’t thrilled about trying something new. 

I always get nervous that I will overcook or undercook or just mess something up when I try a new cooking method. But really, pan-searing salmon was SO simple!

Simply place your salmon, skin side down, on a hot pan and let it cook for about 5-10 minutes. The biggest mistake I see is trying to move the salmon too soon. You want this to cook until the skin releases from the pan and you can turn it without breaking your salmon apart. 

Then you flip, cook about 5-10 more minutes until it is flaky and you are done! perfect pan-fried salmon every time! I like to use my Caraway Homes pan because it cooks evenly and NOTHING seems to ever stick to it!

Low Carb, Keto Creamy Salmon Recipe

Why low carb? Why keto? I know, I eat carbs. I share pasta recipes and love banana bread. But I also go through phases where I cut out carbs and eat keto recipes. 

It is all about balance, right? Healthy, intuitive eating. Knowing what my body needs and giving it to it. Right now, that means cutting down on carbs and kicking my body into ketosis. 

Ans before you ask, yes, even the kids eat my low-carb meals. There is never any restriction though. As someone who has struggled with disordered eating forever, I make sure I don’t talk about “bad foods” or restrict my kids. We just focus on eating healthy and that’s it.
