Though I enjoy cooking I do not experiment much when it comes to salmon. I have a delicious Asian salmon recipe that I go to when I want something a little different. This Greek salmon is my favorite in summer, but the rest of the year I stick to the classic garlic butter flavor. This recipe is a compete dinner all baked at once on one pan. Talk about easy.

How do you make a Keto Garlic Butter Salmon and Broccoli Sheet Pan Dinner?
Start by lining a baking sheet with foil. This makes clean up a breeze. Lightly spray with cooking spray and lay the salmon down the center of the pan and the broccoli florets along each side.
In a small bowl combine the melted butter, garlic, dijon, lemon juice and spices. Drizzle the mixture over the salmon and broccoli. Use your hands to work the mixture evenly onto the broccoli. Make sure everything is in a single layer so it cooks evenly and pop into a 400 degree oven.
Why are salmon and broccoli good for a keto diet?
Broccoli is a great keto staple because it is low in cabs and high in fiber. Broccoli is a strong source of vitamin C and K, as well as potassium. This dinner is not only an ideal keto dinner, but a nutritionally rich one as well.
Keto is a low carb high fat diet. Your body reaches a state of ketosis when your carb intake is so law that it begins to burn fat instead of carbs. Salmon is an excellent option for a keto diet because it contains no carbs and a high amount of heart healthy fats. It is an excellent source of vitamin B, protein, and Omega-3 Fatty Acids.
I live in an inland state so getting fresh seafood is not an option. So, I do the next best thing, we get monthly seafood shares from Sitka Salmon Shares. This is a bit like a CSA, where you get a box of locally grown produce. But instead of produce you get seasonal Alaskan seafood. It combines two things I love, supporting small businesses and good food!
