Salmon in soy sauce

A great, easy, tasty, keto recipe. My family adores it, it literally takes 10-15 minutes to make, and is super filling. You have to try it!

Add more oil if you want it to be more filling, or accompany with a fatty vegetable side dish.

  • 2 salmon fillets, about 1 inch thick (14 oz in total)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • The green part of 3 leeks (cut out the ends) OR one whole leek (90g)

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
