This salmon dish is so easy yet super tasty. Simply roasted salmon and green beans are seasoned with our keto crispy capers and just a hint of zing from preserved lemon accompanied by crème fraiche infused with aromatic dill.

This is a great meal if you are after an easy to prepare mid-week treat! Perfect served alongside a simple green salad or a portion of cauliflower rice. The recipe for the keto crispy capers can be found in the sides section.

    This was very good! Simple but flavourful. I never really liked capers before, but these fried capers are amazing! I'm the only one who like green beans, so I also made zucchini fries and the kids loved it! I just added a tiny bit of the sauce and a couple capers for them. Was a hit!!

      This recipe is so great. Not only does it taste good, its easy to put together and clean up is quick. But the best part of all is how versatile it is. It tolerates substitutions really well. No capers? Most olives will do. Can't find perserved lemon? Slice up a fresh one and add some extra salt. Fresh green beans a no go? Frozen or canned will work. (Drain/defrost first). Outta creme fraiche? Sour cream's got you. I've tried all of these at different times and still got excellent results. Being able to use leftover ingredients or more accessible ones in a recipe is always worth an extra star to me. It saves a lot of time and money.

        Thanks for the substitution info! I was just wondering how to pull it together without driving through a snow storm to get certain parts. ;D

                Taste great, used sour cream because I had no creme fraiche, but love it.

                  Flavor was great. The green beans were still a little hard but I will heat them on the stove a little next time.

                      Creme fraiche is the same as sour cream

                      Sauté one ounce of drained capers in one tablespoon of olive oil for 2 to 3 minutes.
