Keto Salmon Frittata

Keto, keto, keto.  You don't have to be keto to enjoy this, but if you are, you're in luck!  Keto Salmon Frittata is out of the oven in 35 minutes!

Keto Challenge

I did it.  I finished my keto-challenge.  It was even primal-style (seriously, a diet challenge that lets you eat cheese is what I'm talking about!).

It went alright, especially with Holley's help:  challenges help motivate us to be creative with our recipe development, which is how the Keto Salmon Frittata came to be.  Thanks, Holley!  Yes, this is Holley's recipe, but she's working on a book review at the moment.  A book review of “Green Enough” which I highly recommend you read because it is eye-opening about what we're being exposed to from surprising places and products.  It's the perfect example of why Holley and I think that Beautycounter is incredible.  So I'm telling the story today, sucka!

Oh shoot, I shoulda had some story to follow that up.

What About You?

Sooo…  how's it going?

I kinda just want to learn about you!  Can I ask you a bunch of questions and you share your stories?  Big stuff, like what are you passionate about?  What are you working towards?  Little stuff, like what'd you have for breakfast?  Where are you next traveling to?  Or anything in-between.

Sunroom Sanctuary

Wait, wait!  I got it!

Holley, another friend, and I moved into a house together before Christmas.  Of course, this has made it even harder to convince people that we're not a couple.  And I'm slightly regretting it now because, in this small town, I live with most of my local friends.  Which means that I work on the website from home, live at home, and also “visit” my friends at home.  I don't have anywhere to go anymore!

As for the house itself, from the outside, it looks like a hole, but the inside is getting better by the day.  This past weekend while I visited with friends in a neighboring town for St. Patrick's Day (did you see Holley's must-try Irish Creamer?!  So good, and so much better than the crap from the stores!), Holley cleaned out the sunroom.  When I got back, we made this happen:

The Primal Desire sunroom, ready for summer, work, meditating, and straight chillin'!

It's pretty dope.  The twinkling lights, sunlight, disco ball reflections, and draped saris make this space super comfortable.  Just wait til we get some plants in there!

Have you created a sanctuary space in your home?  We're still working on the other common areas a bit, including the back deck/BBQ area (which was just hooked up last week as well!!!).  Does it ever make a difference to mental well-being having spaces that feel good to be in?

Keto Salmon Frittata

Side note about the Keto Salmon Frittata, we are super lucky to get line-caught, wild salmon from my dad.  And let me tell you about Dad and his ice-fishing:  he's the guy that shows up to the lake last, catches his limit, and leaves before the other guys are even close.

Needless to say, we should be making more canned salmon recipes.  Do you have any favorite canned salmon recipes?  Open-faced salmon-melts?  Greek Salmon “Shepherd's” Pie?  Keto Salmon Frittata?

Keto Salmon Frittata

  • Author: Holley
  • Yield: 8 servings
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Method: Oven


Looking for an easy and quick Keto meal?  Keto Salmon Frittata is out of the oven in 35 minutes!


  • 250 ML (1 can) salmon (we used Raj's Dad's line caught canned salmon.  Also tried his smoked salmon)
  • 1 cup chopped greens (kale, spinach, bok choy, swiss chard, whatever you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill (we used fresh dill)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup aged cheddar, (optional)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Press the canned salmon into the bottom of your oven safe dish or skillet.
  3. Layer in greens and sliced mushrooms.
  4. Break eggs into a bowl and whisk, adding salt and pouring overtop of the layers, trying to get an even distribution of eggs.
  5. Lay tomato slices around the edge.
  6. Sprinkle optional cheddar over top and finally the dill.
  7. Pop in the oven and bake for 35 minutes.


Don't have a cast iron pan?  You can get one here, but an oven-safe casserole dish works great as well.  A light coating of olive oil or butter will help prevent sticking.  Ditch that non-stick cookware!

    I am looking forward to trying this. Can you use regular canned salmon rather than the smoked canned salmon?

    • Raj March 24, 2018 at 9:06 am

      For sure. We tried both options.
