Healthy Salmon {gluten free, low carb}

Sharing is caring!

Salmon is an oily fish that’s high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which makes it a great low carb option with health benefits! And the best thing about it is how easy it is to make!

This meal takes about 30 minutes to make from start to finish. The seasoning mixture is simple, healthy, and flavorful! Start by adding 1/4 cup avocado oil to a small bowl. You could use extra virgin olive oil for this recipe as well. Then add in the juice from half a lemon, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp dried thyme, 1/4 tsp dried parsley, and 2 tsp minced garlic, and mix it all together. Using a pastry brush, paint the seasoning mixture onto 4 six ounce salmon filets, or two 8 ounce filets. Arrange the salmon filets on a greased baking dish. Take the other half of the lemon and cut it into 4 thin slices and place them on top of the seasoned filets. Pop the baking dish into the oven and bake at 400 degrees for about 15-25 minutes, depending on the size of your salmon filets. You’ll know the fish is cooked properly when it flakes apart easily with a fork. Serve with cauliflower rice, green beans, broccoli, or asparagus for a delicious low carb meal you’ll feel good about eating!
