Low Carb Recipe: Mediterranean Style Salmon


What you will need: 

2 Salmon Fillets
1 bunch of Cilantro- diced small
1 Lemon
Small Jar of Green Olives- cut in half
1/2 Cup of Cacique Queso Fresco cheese- crumbled
15 Cherry Tomatoes- halved
1 Cucumber- Diced
2 Garlic Cloves- diced very small
2 TBSP Butter
1 tsp. Fish Seasoning
1 tsp. Paprika 
Salt and Pepper to taste

What To Do:

Season your salmon with lemon juice, paprika, salt, pepper and fish seasoning. Add diced garlic, half of the diced cilantro and butter to top of salmon and add to a 350 F preheated oven uncovered. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until done all the way through. 

To Make The Salad Topping: 

Mix together diced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, green olives and half of the cilantro and cheese to a large bowl and toss together. Let sit in the refrigerator while the salmon cooks. 

You can use feta cheese instead of the queso fresco if you like feta but I don't so I used a different crumbly cheese. 

Remove salmon from oven and let sit for 5 minutes to cool down slightly and finish cooking. Top with the salad mixture and a squeeze of lemon and enjoy. 

This made 2 servings. My daughter and I enjoyed this a lot. We served this on top of a couple of lettuce leaves but you can omit that if you like.
