Perhaps the most well-known fish in the keto world, salmon is rich with healthy omega-3 fatty acids and contains zero carbohydrates. The skin on salmon supplies collagen, B vitamins, and vitamin D. Thanks to the Foodi™ Grill, the salmon skin in this recipe crisps up so well, it’s like eating a potato chip on top of a rich, juicy fish fillet.

  • 1 1/2 pounds skin-on salmon
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon erythritol
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons cold water


  • Grill Grate
  • Medium Bowl
  • Step 1

    Insert the Grill Grate and close the hood. Select GRILL, set the temperature to MAX, and set the time to 8 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating.

  • Step 2

    Place the salmon, skin-side down, on a cutting board. Season it with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Turn the salmon and season the skin with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

    Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the tahini, coconut aminos, lemon juice, erythritol, garlic, and sesame oil. Whisk in the cold water until smooth.
