A great way to get in some healthy fats for dinner is with this delicious and flavorful Keto Lemon Rosemary Salmon dish!
Keto Lemon Rosemary Salmon
I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t eat enough salmon or fish in general.
Growing up we would eat fish and I always remember pulling bones out of it and having to be careful of bones and it just creeped me out. So I think I just inadvertently boycotted fish as an adult.
However, that is much less common with a good cut of salmon. And it tastes SO good! No matter how you cook it, it just tastes amazing.
That is one of the nice things about salmon – you really don’t need to dress it up TOO much as the natural flavor is already there. Just like with a filet mignon!
How to Make Keto Lemon Rosemary Salmon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine herbs, salt, pepper, and minced garlic cloves with olive oil.
Place salmon on parchment paper lined baking sheet, skin side down.
Spread mixture onto salmon fillets and spoon lemon juice onto salmon.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Can I Make This in the Air Fryer?
Certainly! I have not tried it with this particular recipe, but you can model the instructions for the keto blackened salmon in terms of cooking in the air fryer!
I find that the air fryer gives the salmon a more crispy texture than the oven but it is all a preference thing.
What to Eat With Keto Lemon Rosemary Salmon
My favorite keto side dish to eat with this salmon is Keto Garlic Parmesan Asparagus. YUMMY! Talk about a complete compliment of flavors!

Salmon Health Benefits
According to Healthline, Salmon has the following amazing health benefits:
- Very rich on omega 3 fatty acids which can reduce inflammation and blood pressure.
- A nice choice for protein which is needed for muscle growth and healing.
- Loaded with vitamins and minerals.
- Can aid in weight loss by regulating the hormone that makes you feel full. SCORE!
Too often in our diets (especially the Standard American Diet) we consume far too many Omega 6 Fatty Acids and not enough Omega 3 fatty acids.
That is one reason why salmon is so terrific is that it helps put that delicate balance back in place a bit.
How to Store Leftover Salmon
I’m going to be honest here and say I’m NOT a fan of leftover fish. Never have been, never will be. So I do not eat it afterward. My hubby, however, does.
So for him, we store it in an airtight container in the fridge. While it might last longer, I don’t recommend keeping it in there for more than a day or two.
