Baked Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce - Keto and Low Carb

This salmon is super easy to make and perfect for a weeknight dinner!  I serve it with a quick homemade dill sauce that is creamy, but light.  I add capers to it, which gives it a nice briny/salty bite!  It’s packed with flavor and would also be great with any fish you like.  Give this one a try and you can have a healthy and tasty dinner in under 25 minutes!

Salmon is a great food for the Keto diet, it’s loaded with healthy Omega-3 fatty acids!  It’s incredibly good for cardiovascular system, cancer preventative, eyes, inflammation, hair and skin.  Plus it really tastes amazing and you can make it so many different ways!  I also have an Asian Glazed Salmon recipe that you can check out!
