Keto Roasted Salmon Pasta Salad

This Keto pasta salad screams “Summer patio dinner”, but it’s really great for any meal you want to share with others! You can hardly tell the difference between typical elbow noodles and the Shirataki noodles used here. Since Shirataki noodles are made with low-carb yam flour and mostly contain water, you can feel safe and healthy eating this pasta salad with your main course. You won’t feel left out at the next Summer barbecue! A buttery roasted salmon provides you a little protein and lots of healthy oils and fats. Grape tomatoes, firm feta cheese, and a lot of fresh basil flavor the rest of the recipe. Of course, at your discretion, you can choose to add any extra Keto ingredients you enjoy in your pasta salad, such as a spoonful of mayonnaise. Serve the Keto salmon pasta salad family-style at the dinner table or portion it out into meal prep containers for the week.

What Types Of Noodles Should I Use?

Your average pasta salad contains noodles like bowtie, macaroni, or penne pasta. Look for similar styles when you’re shopping for Shirataki noodles. Some brands made an elbow pasta shape that is the perfect substitute in a Keto recipe. You’ll usually find Shirataki noodles packaged in a plastic bag filled with water in the refrigeration/freezer aisle. Look for a section devoted to vegetarian, vegan, or non-dairy items. If you can only find Shirataki noodles in long strands, you can chop them into small pieces before you boil them.

Other Ingredients You Can Try

Want to put your own personal touch on your Keto pasta salad? There are many ways to do this. As early as Step 1, you can season the salmon with your favorite spices. When you’re mixing the pasta salad, try adding other fresh herbs besides basil. Oregano, tarragon, dill, or thyme are all complementary flavors that pair well with the salmon. This is also a great Keto recipe to break out the “fancy” olive oil! Use extra virgin olive oil, if you have it. Olive oils infused with citrus flavors, garlic, or other herbs would also taste fantastic here.

Recipe Steps

steps 4

1 h 10 min

  • Step 1

    Pat a whole fillet of salmon dry with a paper towel. Then, rub the olive oil into the flesh. Season the fish with lemon pepper, black pepper, onion powder, dried basil, and dried oregano. If your lemon pepper does not have salt, please include a pinch of salt when seasoning the salmon. You may let the salmon marinate in your refrigerator for 1-2 hours, or you may continue on directly to Step 2.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Preheat an oven to 375 degrees and line a sheet tray with parchment paper. Place the fish on the tray and roast it for 20 minutes in the oven. After 20 minutes, melt the butter in a small dish in your microwave. Remove the fish from the oven and brush half the butter over the fillet. Return the fish to the oven to roast for another 20 minutes. Brush the remaining butter over the fish again and roast in your oven for a final 15 minutes, resulting in a total of 55 minutes of cooking time.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    While the fish is in the oven, you can start preparing the pasta salad. Bring a pot of water to a boil while you drain your shirataki noodles and rinse them. Once the water is boiling, pour in the noodles and cook them for only 2-3 minutes. Drain the noodles and transfer them to a large mixing bowl. Add chopped grape tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, and chopped fresh basil to the bowl.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    When the salmon is done roasting, allow it to cool for at least 5 minutes. Use a fork to flake the fish into many small pieces. It is up to you to determine how flaky or chunky you want the pieces to be. Add the flaked salmon to your pasta salad bowl. Add your remaining salt, oil, vinegar, and lemon juice to the mixing bowl. Fold all the ingredients together until you have a completed pasta salad. You may serve immediately while the salmon is warm, or you may chill and marinate the pasta salad for 1 hour before serving.
