Harlan Kilstein Keto Moroccan Salmon

Harlan Kilstein’s Keto Moroccan  Salmon

Selecting Salmon


When selecting salmon, the first thing you look for is the lines of fat in the salmon. The more lines of fat the better the salmon will taste. I’ve never been wrong using this guideline.

Most salmon we see in our supermarkets is farm-raised. The fisheries have to add food color to make it look red to our eyes.

Wild salmon has a different taste but it’s much better for you. It is higher in natural omegas.

I try to get my salmon at Whole Foods.

Most salmon we buy is chinook or king salmon. Coho or silver salmon is also a good choice.

Once a year in June, Copper River Salmon may be available. Your eyes will pop out at the price but it’s not to be missed.

Simply the best salmon in the world.
