Keto Salmon with Lemon Herb Butter Sauce
Salmon and lemon are a delish combination and you can make this restaurant-quality dish at home with my no-fail lemon butter sauce!
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 lb salmon filets 1 per person
- 1/2 cup salted butter
- 3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
- 3 tbsp chicken broth
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp chopped parsley
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 tbsp cooking oil
Season the salmon filets with salt and pepper and heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Cook the salmon filets, skin side up, for 3-4 minutes then turn them over and cook an additional 2-3 minutes depending on the thickness.
Remove the salmon from the skillet and tent with foil to keep warm.
Mince the garlic and add it to the remaining oil in the skillet. Cook over medium heat for 1 minute.
Add 3 tbsp chicken stock and 3 tbsp lemon juice to the garlic and simmer, letting the liquid reduce by half.
Add 3 tbsp of heavy whipping cream and turn off the heat.
Keep the skillet on the warm burner and add the butter one chunk at a time, whisking to combine. Keep adding the butter, whisking as you go, until it is all incorporated.
Add the herbs and spoon the sauce over the warm salmon. Enjoy!
