Keto Asian Onion Relish. If you like onions this is heavenly. Not something you eat a ton of at any given time, but it goes really well as a side dish to a lot of meats and particularly well with Crispy Pork Belly. It is very easy and made in about 10 minutes at most. It should be refrigerated for 2-3 hours but that doesn’t count in any prep time. You can make it in the morning and have it ready for dinner. The Asians seem to have a gift for making foods that are sweet, sour, bitter and salty with a little umami thrown in and this has it all. Anytime you are using even a little soy sauce you are going to get umami and as I said, keto Asian onion relish has it all. I had already named this as keto before I realized it was not. It is actually low carb but the actual fat content percentage is only 35% just so you know.

- For as little sesame oil as most recipes call for please, make sure it is 100% sesame oil and not mixed with some other seed oils which is definitely not cool.
- This is a pretty spicy little number but if you want even more add more red pepper flakes as appropriate.
- If you don't already have a good sesame oil then by all means please use olive oil instead. It will not have the intense flavor of sesame but it is pretty danged good and the idea is that it is an onion relish and the flavor of onions will come through loud and clear.
