Here’s my oven baked salmon recipe that’s gluten free, low carb and keto friendly with only one net carb. I’ll even show you how to turn this recipe into a full meal with one baking sheet and it makes a low carb great meal prep dish to add to your weekly rotation. If you like salmon than you should also try my salmon croquettes or crab cakes!
Oven Baked Salmon
I never thought I’d say baked salmon was one of my favorite meals. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t having it cooked like this oven baked salmon recipe! I originally found this recipe in Delish’s Keto Magazine. I’ve made a few recipes from there and unfortunately I haven’t been too impressed. This one however did NOT disappoint.
The original recipe serves four however I’ve turned this into a one person meal. Unfortunately, I can’t find it on their website but it can be found in this version of their magazine.
Baked Salmon Recipe
- Salmon filet (I’ve been using these frozen filets from Sams and the skin has already been removed. They’re also individually packaged so they’re great for one person)
- Pink Himalayan Sea Salt (this is the kind that I use)
- Fresh Ground Black Pepper
- 5 Tablespoons Melted Unsalted Butter
- 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated
- 2 Cloves of Garlic, Minced
- 1 Tablespoon Dried Parsley
- 91 grams x 2 of Fresh Broccoli Florets, cut to your liking
- Baking sheet (this is the kinda that I use) covered in aluminum foil and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray (this one is my ABSOLUTE favorite, it actually works!).
- Ramekin (these are the ones that I have) or small bowl
- Kitchen Scale (This is the digital kitchen scale that I have and I can’t live without it!)
- Measuring spoons
- Garlic mincer (Look at this electric garlic cutter!)
- Measuring cups
Oven Baked Salmon Directions
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- Since I use the pre-packaged Sam’s salmon I do thaw and pat dry before putting it on my prepared baking sheet.
- I lay the salmon directly in the center so that I can put a meals worth of vegetables on each side of the salmon. Season with salt and pepper.
- Wash and chop your broccoli to your liking. One serving of broccoli is 91 grams. Place the first batch (91 grams) on one side of the salmon and the other batch (91 grams) on the other side of the salmon.
- Place butter in a safe dish and melt.
- In a small bowl, mix together the parmesan cheese, minced garlic and dried parsley.
- Pour two tablespoons of the melted butter on the salmon. If you didn’t completely cover the top with the butter feel free to ad more.
- Using your fingers generously sprinkle the parmesan cheese mixture on top of your prepared salmon. You want to evenly coat the salmon with the coating. Gently pressing down the mixture to the fish to get it to secure.
- Next, pour the remaining butter over your broccoli. Depending on how much you used for your salmon you may need to melt another tablespoon.
- Using your fingers sprinkle the remaining parmesan cheese mixture all over both batches of broccoli.
- Place your baking sheet in the oven for 25 minutes.
- When the twenty-five minutes is up switch your oven to broil and cook for another two minutes until the top is a golden brown.
Tips for serving your Oven Baked Salmon
- I like to serve my salmon over a bed of mixed greens with Ken’s Creamy Caesar Dressing, lightly dusted with grated parmesan cheese. Then sprinkle the broccoli and half of the salmon. I break up the salmon before putting it on top of the greens.
