Recipe suitable for ketogenic weight loss


Rub the sunflower oil into the salmon fillets. Place
into a shallow dish. Pour lime juice over salmon
and sprinkle with salt. Marinate in the fridge for
approximately 2 hours.
In a blender or food processor, place garlic cloves,
sunflower seeds, seeded chillies and lime juice.
Process until well mixed. Pour the olive oil gradually
over the moving blades until the sauce has
thickened and emulsified. Drain the salmon from its
marinade. Grill the fish steaks for about 5 minutes
on either side and serve with the spicy pesto.
