This Keto Garlic Parmesan Butter Baked Salmon was inspired by our fish night on Tuesdays. Well, should I say “Salmon night”?
Prep Time: 5 Minutes Cook Time: 12-15 Minutes Serving: 2-3
My 9-year-old loves salmon so much that he only wants salmon, not any other fish. There were times that I try to get a different kind of fish. But he still insists to have salmon instead.
Like many kids, he likes to have his salmon cooked in certain ways. I love to have mine with different flavors every time. So, here is one of my ways of cooking salmon.
I use wild caught salmon which is leaner in fat. If you use farm raised, adjust either the quantity of the salmon or topping accordingly.
1-1.5 lb Salmon Filet
2 tbsp Softened Butter
1 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp Dried Parsley Flakes
1-1.5 tbsp Shredded Parmesan Cheese (from the deli aisle, NOT the powder kind)
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
A pinch of salt (go easy on it because of the Parmesan cheese)
1 tsp Bread Crumb (optional and only if you are NOT on any low carb or Keto diet)
Preheat oven at 400F
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and pop it into the oven to preheat the pan as well
In a small mixing bowl, combine all the topping ingredients together except bread crumb
Line the salmon filet on the preheated baking sheet
Spread the mixed topping on the fish evenly and sprinkle bread crumb on top
Bake for 12-15 minutes until desired doneness
Rest for 2 minutes and serve immediately
