The ketogenic diet (often called keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. When your body switches to burning fat for its primary fuel source, that’s when you hit ketosis.
While on the Keto diet you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 25 percent from protein, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. You’re supposed to avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.

- I used 213 gram cans of Sockeye Salmon
- This recipe can be made with fresh salmon instead of canned salmon. Instead use 1 lb of salmon fillet baked or grilled.
- The canned salmon can also be replaced with canned tuna, crab or chicken. Any type of canned salmon will also work for this recipe. It doesn’t have to be Sockeye Salmon.
- The Salmon Burger Patties can also be baked in the oven instead of frying. They can also be grilled on a well oiled grill. For the oven, set to your oven 400 F and bake on a parchment paper line baking pan for 18 – 20 minutes flipping halfway. For the Grill, heat grill to 400 F and grill for about 3 – 4 minutes per side. The burgers are delicate, so be extra gentle when flipping on the grill.
