Low Carb Baked Salmon Recipes

Here's a couple of low carb baked salmon recipes that are delicious and easy to make.  If you end up with leftover fish, it can be mixed with mayonnaise and cream cheese for a great salmon spread. Or it's also great mixed into scrambled eggs and an ounce of whipped cream cheese.

Herb Baked Salmon

The herbs used in these recipe are dried.  If you're using fresh, you may want to increase the amounts a bit since dried herbs are much stronger.

  • 2 pounds salmon fillets
  • 4 ounces sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup tamari soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon tarragon
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions

  1. If you have one large, single fillet cut it into 1/2 pound pieces. Get a quart size freezer style ziploc bag.
  2. Stir together the tamari sauce, sesame oil and spices. Put the salmon into the ziploc bag and pour in the sauce mixture.
  3. Refrigerate the salmon, skin side up, in the marinade for 1-4 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking pan with foil.
  5. Pour out the fillets and marinade into the pan. The fish should be in a single layer.
  6. Bake fillets for 10-15 minutes.
  7. While the salmon is baking, get vegetables ready.
  8. Melt the butter. Add the vegetables to it, and mix to coat vegetables.
  9. Remove the salmon from the oven, and pour the butter mixture over the salmon fillets, making sure each fillet gets covered.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 10 minutes more. Serve immediately.
