keto Oceanic foods: low-carb delicacies from the islands and coasts[edit | edit source]

Barramundi grilled in the Sydney Fish Market

Oceanic cuisine, especially from regions like Australia, New Zealand, Papua new guinea, and the various pacific islands, has a unique combination of indigenous foods influenced by European settlers and other migrants. Here's how the traditional dishes from these regions can be adapted or highlighted to fit the keto diet:

Australia Brunch
Chicken Salad

Australia[edit | edit source]

A favorite Australian fish. Grill with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs for a keto-friendly meal.

Traditional meat pies are made with a flaky crust and filled with minced meat and gravy. Use a keto-friendly almond or coconut flour crust and fill with beef or lamb mince cooked in a rich, low-carb gravy.

New Zealand[edit | edit source]

Lamb_chops & ribs

New Zealand is famous for its lamb. Grill or pan-fry lamb chops with garlic, rosemary, and butter.

Kumara or sweet potato is a staple. To make this keto-friendly, use thin slices of kumara and roast them in a generous amount of coconut oil, seasoning with sea salt.

Papua new guinea[edit | edit source]

Traditional papua new guinean feast cooked in an earth oven. While the original includes a variety of foods, focus on the meats and leafy green vegetables for a keto version.

A staple food sourced from the sago palm. While it's not strictly keto due to its carbohydrate content, it can be consumed in moderation, especially if it's the primary source of carbs for the day.

pacific islands[edit | edit source]

Originating from Hawaii, these are raw fish salads. For a keto version, focus on fatty fish like tuna or salmon, add avocado, seaweed, cucumber, and dress with sesame oil and soy sauce. Omit any rice or sweet dressings.

Slow-cooked pork shoulder seasoned with Hawaiian sea salt and cooked with liquid smoke. This dish is naturally keto-friendly.

A traditional Hawaiian dish consisting of white rice topped with a hamburger patty, a fried egg, and brown gravy. Replace rice with cauliflower rice for a keto-friendly version.
