Garlic and Thyme Skillet Salmon
Salmon is a spectacularly excellent ketogenic fish because it’s full of omega-3 fatty acids. Atlantic salmon has the most fat, with about 18 grams of fat per 6-ounce portion.
4 tablespoons Golden Ghee, divided
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
Pinch sea salt
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
1 shallot, quartered
Directions Preparing:10 minCooking:10 min
Step 1Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Step 2In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of ghee with the garlic, thyme, and salt. Set aside.
Step 3In a medium cast iron skillet, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of ghee over medium heat. When the ghee is hot, add the salmon fillets, skin-side down. Wedge the shallot quarters between each salmon fillet. Sear the fillets for 1 minute, flip, and sear for another minute.
Step 4Break the shallot quarters into individual layers, and top the salmon with the seasoning mixture.
Step 5Transfer the skillet to the oven. Bake for 8 minutes.
Step 6Serve the salmon and roasted shallots hot, with a squeeze of lemon.
