Basil & Lemon Salmon is wrapped in foil and then baked in the oven until tender and flaky. This healthy, easy, and low-carb seafood recipe is full of fresh basil, garlic, and lemon juice. It makes a wonderful family and kid-friendly keto and Paleo dinner recipe for busy weeknights!
Whisk melted butter, garlic, basil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a medium-sized bowl.
Place a large sheet of aluminum foil on a baking sheet. Layer a piece of parchment paper that is slightly smaller than the foil on top.
Lay salmon fillets on paper with a slight gab between each one.
Pour half of the lemon-basil sauce over salmon fillets. Reserve the remaining sauce for later.
Top each fillet with one lemon slice.
Close paper and aluminum foil around salmon to make a packet. Bake salmon for 14-16 minutes without undoing the foil packet.
Open the foil packet, pour remaining lemon-basil sauce over fillets and return salmon to oven under a High broil for 5-7 minutes.
Watch salmon closely while broiling. Once salmon starts to brown slightly, remove from oven and serve immediately. See this recipe in Healthy Meal Plan #1
