Is there any good recipe for Salmon casserole which is not using normal flour?
I still would like to enjoy creamy taste with the Casserole.
This recipe is those who are looking for Ketogenic, salmon casserole recipe.
Hi, I am Leto, a Japanese living in the USA currently. I have been working on the Ketogenic diet for about a year because I started to have symptoms when I eat a lot of carbs. It has been very hard for me to cut all the carbs as you can imagine, the hardest thing to let go is rice.
To make myself satisfied with Ketogenic meals, I have been looking for easy, yummy Ketogenic meals from all over the world.
This recipe is “Salmon recipe,” however, if you want to replace the salmon by other proteins like chicken, sausage, bacon and so on, you can do so.

Keto Salmon Casserole Recipe | The key to make the recipe Ketogenic is “Okara powder”
Okara powder has very close texture to flour and yet, it does not contain much net-carbs. Almond powder is often used as an alternative for any flour, but Okara powder works more like flour.
Okara powder is made of soy beans. The ingredient is made in the process of making Tofu. After squeezing juice of boiled soy beans to make Tofu, the left over is called “Okara.” Okara has been used to make salad and so on in Japan.
If you are on Ketogenic diet, the benefit is very clear to substitute flour by Okara powder. The carb that is contained in each ingredient is as follows;
|All purpose flour||75.9g||2.5g||73.4ｇ|
It is recommended to use “fine” version of Okara powder so that the texture can be very much like all purpose flour.
In the USA：
Couple of months ago, I started to use this powder and just fell in love with it. It has perfect texture as an alternative of flour. Since then, I have been buying them by three bundle ones as it is cheaper.
Keto Salmon Casserole Recipe | Ingredients
Ingredients are as follows;
Some of you must not be familiar with one of the ingredients above, “Consommé.” This is basically Chicken, vegetable cubes to make soup broth.
I am usually using this product from Japan. Amazingly, it is very popular in the USA nowadays. You can check the reviews of the people who are buying this.
Because I am used to Japanese taste, I believe this is the best soup broth cube out there.
About the protein, you may replace it for some items that you like as I mentioned above. With sausage or bacons, you can have good taste out of them so that you do not need to add the Consommé.
You may also replace some of the vegetables if you want. Broccolis, mushrooms can be recommended too.
