How to make low-carb garlic Parmesan salmon

Print this recipe
I cook a lot of salmon because it’s such a nutritious choice for low-carb meals. It’s high in protein and full of healthy fats. Plus, it’s delicious and very versatile. The recipe below is fast and easy to make and produces a dish that’s packed with flavor. A quick mixture of ingredients slathered over the fish turns into a creamy and flavorful sauce as it cooks.
I like to pair this salmon dish with roasted broccoli. Not only do the flavors go well together, but you can roast the broccoli on the same pan with the salmon. Add cauliflower rice or salad greens, and this is a dish that won’t leave you missing carbs one bit.

Use cauliflower to create the mashed 'potato' topping in this low-carb version of shepherd's pie. You could use sweet potatoes, but cauliflower has the same savory flavor profile as white potatoes.
