Easy Roasted Lemon Garlic Salmon (Keto)

Print

I’ve been trying to give you all some easy, delicious weeknight meal options, so this simple salmon dinner is my next installment! Salmon is one of my family’s favorite dinners, and if you buy it on sale it can actually be fairly affordable! One key to delicious salmon is to cook it with the skin on, so make sure to buy it that way. Another key to delicious salmon is to store it in the refrigerator and eat it the same day or the day after you buy it…don’t freeze it! This meal is gluten and dairy free, as well as paleo and diabetic friendly. Yay for healthy, affordable, easy, delicious meals!!!

Cooking salmon with the skin on not only makes it more delicious, it also adds omega-3 fatty acids, which have quite a few health benefits. Omega-3s reduce inflammation, which reduces your risk of heart disease and many other diseases. Doctors recommend 2 servings of fatty fish, like salmon, a week.

 

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Salmon is an excellent source of healthy and unsaturated fats, and excellent for heart & brain health. While the skin may be an additional source of those healthy fats, keep in mind that salmon skin can also contain any water pollutants or chemicals. I would recommend only consuming salmon skin in moderation. This recipe is very high in sodium, making it not the best choice if you are trying to follow a low-sodium diet. Trying to limit your sodium intake? Make this recipe low sodium by eliminating the salt and increasing the amount of fresh lemon juice. Lemon pepper is high in sodium, so substitute with a no-sodium lemon pepper.

Easy Roasted Lemon Garlic Salmon (Keto)

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15-20 minutes
  • Servings: 3

Ingredients

1 pound salmon filet (skin on)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (or more)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon organic garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper

Instructions

1. Heat a large cast iron pan or griddle over medium heat. No need to grease it.
2. Season your salmon. First squeeze the lemon juice on it, then sprinkle the seasonings on top.
3. Place the salmon on your griddle, skin side down, and cook for 5-10 minutes.

4. Flip the salmon over and cook for another 5-10 minutes.

Note: Make sure to leave it alone when you first flip it, or it will stick to the griddle. Salmon is done when the skin pulls off easily and the fish is easy to pull apart with a fork. Try not to overcook! I like to leave the middle just a tiny bit pinker than the edges of my salmon…it is so moist and delicious!
