This recipe is healthy and simple! Delicious smoked paprika salmon cooked in the oven and simple zucchini noodles made on the stove top while the salmon is cooking. Low Carb and a great Keto friendly meal! You can also buy the zucchini noodles pre spiralized at many grocery stores making this meal even simpler and quicker!
For this recipe you will need 3-4 Salmon Fillets, 4 Zucchinis (or pre spiralized zucchini noodles), 1/4 Cup Olive Oil (plus more for cooking zucchini noodles), 9 Minced Garlic Cloves , 1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan (grated not shredded), 2 Teaspoons Smoked Paprika, 2 Teaspoons Salt, 1/2 Teaspoon Pepper, and Juice of Half a Lemon.
You want to start by combining the olive oil, smoked paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 3 minced garlic cloves, and the juice of half a lemon in a bowl. Mix together with a fork.
Prep a baking sheet and add the salmon fillets. Drizzle the mixture over the salmon fillets. Using fingers to make sure the mixture is rubbed all over the salmon fillets.
Bake the Salmon at 400 Degrees F for 25-30 minutes.
For the Zucchini noodles you want to spiralize them first (skip this part if you bought them spiralized already). Then you want to ring as much water out of them as you can. I like to use paper towels to do this.
Heat a skillet to medium high heat and drizzle some olive oil (about a tablespoon). Add in the zucchini noodles and 6 minced garlic cloves and cook for 3-4 minutes. You do not want to cook it too long because they will get soggy you just want them to wilt a bit but still be a bit crunchy. After 3-4 minutes add 1 Teaspoon salt and 1/4 Teaspoon pepper and 1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese and saute for 1 minute. Turn off heat.
Serve with the salmon and enjoy! I like to squeeze a little extra lemon juice over the top!
