Salmon, I Love It, But Is It Good For You?

According to Scientific Reports, Salmon contains a dangerous amount of microplastics.

However, not every variety of this staple seafood is as healthy as you might think. In fact, there’s one major reason why you shouldn’t eat certain types of salmon: in doing so, you could be consuming a shocking amount of dangerous microplastics along the way.

While it was once believed that microplastics—tiny fragments of plastic measuring less than 5 mm in length, which are a major source of contamination in waterways—remained only in the gut of marine creatures, a 2017 study published in the journal Scientific Reports found that microplastics are easily discovered in the fleshy portions of fish frequently consumed by humans

Keto Salmon Fish Cakes Recipe with Creamy Dill Sauce/Recipe Share

Keto Salmon Fish Cakes Recipe with Creamy Dill Sauce #keto https://ketosummit.com/keto-salmon-fish-cakes-creamy-dill-sauce

There’s nothing fishy about these keto salmon fish cakes recipe – they’re delicious. The creamy dill sauce is the perfect complement to this easy ketogenic fish cakes dish.

Modifications for a Keto Diet

Generally salmon cakes will contain bread or breadcrumbs. Tasty, but off-limits. Instead, I included coconut flour and shredded coconut.

Coconut flour and shredded coconut help bind the cakes together, along with eggs.

The dill sauce didn’t really need much in the way of modifications, although this version uses coconut milk where a lot of others use sour cream.

Health Benefits of Salmon

As you probably know, fish in general and salmon in particular are really good for you. Probably at the top of the list are their omega-3 fatty acids.

Omega-3 fatty acids decrease inflammation, reduce cancer risk and improve artery health. If you’re concerned about heart health, increasing your intake of omega-3s is probably a smart move.

In addition, omega-3s are good for your joints, your brain and your vision. Basically, there are a lot of good things going for it.


Salmon is also a great source of vitamin B12, vitamin D, vitamin B3 and selenium.

As you’d probably guess, salmon also provides a good amount of protein. A serving using this keto salmon fish cakes with creamy dill sauce will get you 42 grams.

Protein assists with healing and recovery, bone health and prevents muscle loss. That last one becomes even more important as you age.

Power up your mind and body and enjoy a healthy meal with this keto salmon fish cakes recipe with creamy dill sauce! In case you are just looking for a non-keto version, here’s one for you.

5 Healthy Foods that are high in Vitamin D/Information Share

The Reference Daily Intake (RDI) is 600 IU of vitamin D per day from foods. If you don’t get enough sunlight, your intake should likely be closer to 1,000 IU per day.

Here are 5 healthy foods that are high in vitamin D.

1. Wild salmon contains about 988 IU of vitamin D per serving, while farmed salmon contains 250 IU, on average. That’s 165% and 42% of the RDI, respectively.

2. Herring contains 1,628 IU of vitamin D per 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving. Pickled herring, sardines and other fatty fish, such as halibut and mackerel, are also good sources.

3. Cod liver oil contains 450 IU of vitamin D per teaspoon (4.9 ml), or 75% of the RDI. It is also high in other nutrients, such as vitamin A and omega-3 fatty acids.

4. Mushrooms can synthesize vitamin D2 when exposed to UV light. Only wild mushrooms or mushrooms treated with UV light are good sources of vitamin D.

5. Oysters are full of nutrients and provide 53% of the RDI for vitamin D. They also contain more vitamin B12, copper and zinc than a multivitamin.

Eating plenty of these vitamin-D-rich foods is a great way to make sure you get enough of this important nutrient.
