How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs

Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 1 dash BLACK PEPPER
  • 1 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 3 tsp THYME
  • 0 1/4 cup VEGETABLE OIL
  • 24 oz, boneless, raw SALMON
  • 1 tsp SALT
  • 3 tsp, leaves OREGANO


Although tuna and catfish are more often cooked this way, blackened salmon is also delicious. The contrast in texture and heat between the crusty, spicy rub and tender, almost sweet fish is delightful.
  1. Combine thyme, oregano, Old Bay seasoning, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Coat each piece of fish with 2 teaspoons of oil; press spice rub into flesh on both sides.
  2. With an exhaust fan or other good ventilation, heat remaining 4 teaspoons oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish and sear until coating is black, about 3 minutes per side.
  3. Serve right away.
