Keto Baked Lemon Butter Salmon Recipe


Servings: 5 servings

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes


  • 5 Salmon filet skin on or off
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons Ghee divided
  • 6 cloves Minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup Fresh lemon juice plus 1 thinly sliced lemon
  • 3 tablespoons Minced fresh parsley divided


  1. Dry both sides of the salmon thoroughly with a paper towel. Season it all over with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of ghee in a skillet on medium-high heat. Put the salmon filets’ flesh side down and press them lightly so that the entire surface of the flesh touches the pan. Cook for 3 minutes until the meat is crispy and turns golden brown. Flip the salmon, so the skin or flat side is down, and cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining ghee, minced garlic, and lemon juice to the skillet. Place sliced lemon around the salmon. Cook for one minute, stirring the garlic and ghee around the salmon. Add two tablespoons of parsley and cook for another minute.
  4. Remove the skillet from heat and garnish with the remaining parsley. Serve with your preferred side dishes such as roasted potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts, or cauliflower rice.
