I've cooked this incredible salmon dish with just a few ingredients, that is protein-packed and a great source of omega-3. It is such a great keto meal for you to try and this one is bursting with flavour.

For the Salmon

1. Add the salmon and fully coat in the marinade. Cover the dish with cling wrap and leave to marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes.

2. heat the butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat and add the salmon, skin-side down. Cook for 3 minutes until golden and caramelised. Add the remaining marinade to the dish and cook for a further 2 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked through. There is no need to flip it over, but rather spoon the hot butter and sauce in the pan over the top of the fish. The heat will cook it to perfection. The salmon must not be overcooked or it will dry out - aim for a lovely pink colour when you cut it.

3. Transfer the salmon to 4 serving places and place the pan of marinade back on the heat. Add a drizzle of honey (about 1/2 teaspoon - not too much as this will increase the carb count or you may use a sugar-free syrup instead but I use so little that I am happy to use a natural sweetener like honey and count it into my macros.)

4. Simmer for 1 minute until slightly thickened. Spoon over the salmon, garnish with sesame seeds and chives and serve with the brown butter noodles.

For the Browned Butter Noodles

5. Browned butter is an easy way to add a nutty flavour to your food. Simply melt the butter until golden brown but not burnt.

6. Add the basil and garlic then toss in the noodles and season with salt flakes and crushed black pepper.

7. Garnish with a few basil leaves and enjoy.
