This easy keto salmon recipe is a low calorie sheet pan dinner than is ready in under thirty minutes! A simple light meal that's perfect for warmer weather!

I think this is my first keto salmon recipe on the blog! It’s only taken me two years, haha, but I think it was worth the wait!

I think we all know by now that salmon is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and supports a healthy heart. But did you know that salmon is also a good source of potassium? Bonus, it may also be an anti-inflammatory food!  

Needless to say, salmon is definitely one of the “superfoods” that we should incorporate more of into our diets. 

You’ve heard me say before that even on a ketogenic diet, we don’t need to eat all the fat all the time. Keto isn’t a free pass to eat endless amounts of bacon and butter. Lower fat gram (not low-fat frankenfoods) and lower calorie meals are still okay!

Salmon is an excellent way to eat a low fat or low calorie ketogenic meal. It’s bursting with protein but lower in calories and fat grams. Contrary to popular belief, protein is not your enemy on a ketogenic diet! 

In fact, not eating enough protein on a ketogenic diet can have negative effects on your health. Muscle loss, hair loss, fatigue…

I learned the hard way in my first year of eating keto so take my word and don’t be like me in that way!

Truth be told, until very recently I never cared for salmon. I’ve actually had to teach my self to like salmon because it’s such a bountiful and nutritious food.

I started experimenting with keto salmon recipes when I was writing my cookbook! {Spoiler alert: there are a few really amazing salmon recipes in there!}

Much to my surprise, I really developed a taste for salmon through that writing process. Personally, I think a good salmon dish is characterized by its accompaniments. Meaning, it needs a damn good sauce to go alongside.

Keep in mind too that I have 3 kids and a picky husband at home that have to eat whatever I make for dinner. (no short order cooking in my kitchen) 

Don’t forget dessert!

Easy keto salmon with fresh herbs and roasted summer vegetables.

 

The herby topping keeps the fish moist while baking and gives it a fresh, light, and summery flavor. If at all possible, use fresh herbs (chives and parsley) in this nearly zero carb salmon recipe for the best flavor. Dried thyme and dill are fine though!

This easy keto salmon pairs wonderfully with simple dressed greens (that just means extra virgin olive oil and vinegar) or roasted vegetables. If you have leftover topping, thin it out with a little water and serve as a salad dressing or as a dip for the fish.
