Keto Roasted Salmon with Hollandaise Sauce
There is some
debate regarding the safety of Hollandaise sauce. Traditional cooking methods
involve “cooking” the eggs over very low heat using a double boiler before
whisking in the butter. With the blender method described below, it is
important to start with very warm, melted butter (it should be bubbling, but
not scorched). The stovetop method of melting the butter will give better
control in terms of achieving warm and bubbling results without overdoing it.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Easy Blender Hollandaise Sauce:
3 egg yolks
1½ T. lemon juice
1/8 t. salt
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
6 T. unsalted butter
2 T. fresh chives, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large,
rimmed baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Place
the salmon filets on the prepared baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Season
with salt and black pepper, to taste.
2. Place the baking sheet in the oven to
roast for 12-15 minutes, or just until the salmon flakes easily. Do not
3. Right before the salmon is ready to come
out of the oven, add the egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne pepper to a
high-speed blender and melt the butter in a small saucepan or in the microwave
until it is completely liquid and bubbling.
4. Blend the eggs yolks, lemon juice, and
seasonings for several seconds, then slowly drizzle the warm, melted butter
into the blender while it is still operating. (Once the butter has been added
to the blender, the mixture should quickly develop a smooth, creamy
consistency. It if is too thick, add a tablespoon of warm water and blend for
another couple of seconds).
5. Taste the sauce and add additional lemon
juice, salt, or cayenne pepper, as desired. Pour the sauce into a serving
container and set it in lukewarm water until ready to use. (Avoid overly hot
water as it will cause the eggs to solidify).
6. When the cook time is complete, remove the salmon from the oven and serve immediately with roasted asparagus, broccoli, or your choice of sides. Drizzle some warm hollandaise sauce on top, along with the fresh chives right before serving. Enjoy!
