This is a lovely, light, buttery, lemony, and tasty salmon dish that we love!! It is pretty simple to prepare and is perfect year round. You can use fresh or frozen salmon for this recipe. I used frozen filets from Costco. If using frozen, make sure they are thoroughly thawed.
Lemon Dill Salmon over Cauliflower Rice by Noreen’s Keto Kitchen
- TO PREPARE THE SALMON:
- 4 4 ounce Salmon Filets
- 1 Lemon, sliced into medium thickness slices
- 6-8 Sprigs of Fresh Dill
- TO MAKE THE SAUCE:
- 4 Tablespoons of Butter
- 1/4 teaspoon of Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of Black Pepper
- 1 Tablespoon of Vegeta All Purpose Seasoning (see below for more info)
- 1 teaspoon of Old Bay Seasoning (optional)
- 1 Garlic Clove, crushed, or garlic powder if you prefer (1/2 teaspoon)
- Zest of 1 Lemon
- Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
- 1 Tablespoon of Coarsely chopped Fresh Dill
- Pre- heat oven to 400F
- Line a rectangular baking dish with aluminum foil
- Arrange lemon slices in the baking dish
- Add the Sprigs of Dill on top of the lemon slices
- Lay the Salmon pieces on the bed of Lemon slices and Dill
- Now it’s time to make the sauce!
- Add all the ingredients for the sauce into a small pot and heat on medium until butter has melted. Stir frequently.
- Pour the sauce over the top of the Salmon Filets.
- Cover dish wish aluminum foil and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until salmon easily flakes apart with a fork.
- Serve the Lemon Dill Salmon over sautéed cauliflower rice or other low carb veggies (Green Beans, Broccoli). If serving to Non-Keto folks, you can serve over white rice, if desired. Spoon the pan sauce over the salmon and cauliflower rice.
** For the Cauliflower Rice: I buy it frozen, steam it in the bag in the microwave per directions, drain in colander and then fry it lightly (med-high heat) in a pan with butter, garlic, dried thyme, salt & pepper. I don’t like my cauliflower soggy or mushy, so I find this step dries it out a bit and improves the taste and texture**
Handy Dandy Tips:
- Vegeta – This stuff is awesome!!! My fiance introduced me to this seasoning many years ago and I have been using it ever since. It’s a great all purpose seasoning; not too salty or strong but nice balanced flavors. I often grill or fry up some chicken or pork cutlets seasoned in this bad boy and some pepper. That’s it, and they come out sooooo tasty!! Add to soups, stews, wings, whole roasted chickens, etc, etc. There isn’t anything you can’t add this stuff to! I would consider this Dirty Keto because there is sugar and cornstarch in the mix but at 1 gram of Carbs per 1 teaspoon I just count it in my macros and move on.
