Pesto Baked Salmon with Broccoli

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

Salmon is fantastic on the grill, but after making this recipe I think I have a new way to cook up some salmon fillets! This salmon is baked to perfection with a pesto rub smothered on top, leaving it flaky yet moist.

This salmon is easy to whip up with only 4 ingredients which makes for another easy weeknight dinner that only takes 30 minutes to make!
