Salmon is already packed with healthy fats, but we made it even more Keto-friendly with butter and Parmesan. Yep, you read that correctly. Fat is good when you’re trying to reach ketosis. What’s not allowed: carbs. Luckily, this is completely satisfying on its own and nothing is easier than oven-baked salmon.
Have you made this yet? Let us know how it went in the comments below!
Freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 350°. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with foil and lightly grease with cooking spray. Place salmon on top and season with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, Parmesan, and parsley. Coat salmon with mixture, patting to cover in an even layer. Bake until the salmon is cooked through, about 25 minutes.
- Switch oven to broil and broil until top begins to turn lightly golden, about 2 more minutes.
You can substitute the broccoli for other vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, green beans or asparagus with little to no change to the amount of carbs in the dish.
If you want to use another kind of fish we primarily recommend other fatty fishes such as trout or mackerel but you can also go with white fish if you prefer.
If you don’t like cheddar you can use a mix of different cheeses. Half mozzarella and half parmesan will be just as good!
