I found this particular bacon wrapped salmon recipe here (short demonstration video included). It simply contains salmon, bacon shallots, olive oil, baby spinach with some salt, pepper and mustard!
This recipe has a good amount of fibre with the spinach and has only 9g net carbs for a 500 calorie serving. The insulinogenic ratio is fairly low at 22%.
With the shallots and spinach, along with the nutrients in the salmon, the vitamins and minerals score is high. And then with protein from the salmon, bacon and the spinach it gets a great amino acid score.
Problem for us is that we can’t get non-farmed Atlantic salmon in Australia, so we try to get wild caught deep sea fish that isn’t pellet (grain) fed.
I also get some canned wild Alaskan salmon for lunches (or sardines which are cheaper) which is a great way to get some fish and omega-3s.
Hard to believe that something so yummy and indulgent could be so good for you.
Here are the number for a 500 calorie serving.
