This is one of those recipes that has it all. It is packed with flavors and textures. It is high in protein and low in carbohydrates. It has heart-healthy nutrients from many sources. And you can make it in just a few minutes!
Mediterranean-inspired ingredients lend flavors and nutrients to the dish. There is tangy and creamy feta cheese, with delicious and satisfying salmon. Garlic gives it an aromatic flavor. The basil, parsley, and thyme are sure to provide the Greek characteristic that you are after. Lemon juice adds an acidic balance, and kalamata olives and capers give it more than a bit of zing.
All those flavors taste even better when you think about the nutrients in the spaghetti. It is packed with antioxidants, such as vitamin C and lycopene, from the vegetables and herbs. Plus it has the best kinds of healthy fat. Salmon is one of the richest sources of omega-3 fatty acids, and olive oil and olives contain monounsaturated fatty acids, which are the famous type of fat in heart-health Mediterranean diets.
Next up: the impressive carb and protein content. Because it is made with NutriNoodle Shirataki Spaghetti with Fiber, this recipe has almost no net carbs. It is keto-friendly, since the noodles have 0 grams of net carbs.
When it comes to satisfaction for calories this recipe definitely delivers. NutriNoodle Shirataki Spaghetti with Fiber has only 15 calories per serving, but the recipe is chock-full of filling protein and fiber. The pasta has 3 grams of dietary fiber, and the tomatoes and zucchini add more. Feta cheese and salmon add more than enough protein.
It is fine to use black olives if you do not have kalamata olives. And broccoli florets or chopped kale or spinach can work instead of zucchini. This recipe is totally flexible, so you can make it the way you like it.
