Easy Keto diet Salmon Filet Recipe

Even people who think they don’t like salmon will enjoy this dish, as the creamy, cheesy topping is so rich and delicious. This low carb baked salmon is great for Keto, filled with satisfying, Keto-friendly fats.

Salmon is incredibly nourishing and nutritious. Packed full of omega-3 fatty acids that are anti-inflammatory, great for brain health and good for your heart, I eat salmon about twice each week.

Bonus – salmon is also high in potassium, which is one of the electrolytes that can be depleted in some people while eating Keto.

I buy wild-caught Alaskan Sockeye salmon because it has the best flavor and texture, in my opinion. I live in the Midwest, so I buy frozen fillets and thaw them out ahead of time before preparing this dish.

I also buy the fillets with the skin-on, as there is a lot of nutrition in that skin! If you really don’t like it, you can leave it off. I think it’s great when crispy!

Wild-caught salmon is best, as the farmed varieties are higher in mercury, PCBs, dioxins and pesticides. All of these contaminants are potentially harmful to our health, with connections to numerous health problems, including cancer.

For the mayonnaise, please try to avoid conventional mayo that is made with industrially processed oils! Most mayo is made with soybean oil, which is highly inflammatory. I use Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo and love it.

    Easy Low Carb Recipe
  • Let rest for 10 minutes or until the Parmesan mixture sets enough to be able to easily remove the salmon is pretty single servings.


We used Silicone Molds in this recipe for a few reasons:
  • Easy Single Serving Sizes
  • Easy Cleanup
We use silicone in our fat bombs, 90 second bread (Silicone is microwave safe as I discuss in this article) from our No Cook Keto Cook Book and much more.
There are 4 Servings in this total recipe.
