Whether you’re on a ketogenic diet or not, this keto lemon baked salmon recipe is sure to become a favorite!

Flavoring Fish

If you purchase quality fish, it shouldn’t take much to optimize its taste. Fish begs for some salt and acidity, so I cooked this salmon with lemon slices.

Lemon is the perfect complement to salmon. It adds a fresh, zingy flavor that’s irresistible.

This salmon needs little more than lemon to make it ready for the dinner table. A little garnish and seasoning is all you really need here.

Your salmon will taste great, and, as a bonus, it’s fast and easy to prepare!

What to Serve With

I love eating salmon with a baby spinach salad. The greens pair up really nicely with fish. A spring mix works too.

I’ve also made this with bacon green beans. Delicious!

Additional Keto Fish Recipes

Fish is great for the ketogenic diet. It cooks quickly, making it a convenient choice when you’re short on time.

Just remember to plan your fish meals so that they’re eaten on the day you cook them. Nobody likes microwaved fish. Especially your co-workers, who have to smell that.

Here are some of my favorite keto fish recipes.
