Tomato Carpaccio with Salmon

This low carb version of the Italian inspired salad is super succulent with plenty of fat from the salmon and olive oil.  

The salmon provides the bulk of the energy and protein as well as plenty of choline, selenium and vitamins B3, B5, B6 and B12.   

A dollop of tahini brings a Mediterranean twist along with copper, phosphorus, calcium and iron.   The spinach adds folate, potassium and vitamin K1 while the tomato boosts vitamins A and C.
