  • 170 g salmon fillet
  • 1 slice streaky bacon
  • 2 tbsp pesto


  • Place the streaky bacon on a chopping board.
  • Place the salmon fillet across the bacon. Roll up tightly and secure with a wooden skewer.
  • Place 1-2 tbsp pesto in the centre. 
  • Place in the frying pan, cover, and fry gently for 10 minutes until the salmon and bacon are cooked. There is no need to turn the keto bacon wrapped salmon. When you cook it in the frying pan with the lid, on medium heat, it will allow the steam inside to cook the salmon from above.
  • Alternatively, place the bacon wrapped salmon on a lined baking tray/sheet pan in the oven at 180C/350F for 15 minutes.
