Baked Salmon with Dill Sauce, asparagus and tomatoes is a great healthy 30-minute dinner recipe! Plus, it’s Keto and Low-Carb diet approved!



Ingredients for Baked Salmon with Vegetables:

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt, pepper to taste

Ingredients for Dill Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
  • lemon zest, from 1 lemon
  • 12 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar (skip for Keto, Low-Carb Diets)
  • 1/2 tabpespoons milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, place a parchment paper or a baking mat on a baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Rinse and pat dry the salmon and place on a baking pan. Season with salt and pepper and top with sliced lemon.
  3. Rinse and pat dry vegetables of your choice and also place them on a baking pan, next to the salmon. I like to use cherry tomatoes and asparagus. Drizzle over olive oil.
  4. Bake at 350°F for about 20-22 minutes. The internal temperature of cooked salmon should be at least 145°F.
  5. While the salmon is baking with vegetables, we can start to work on the sauce.
  6. In a small mixing bowl, mix all the sauce ingredients together, except the milk (1/2 cup sour cream, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 cup fresh dill, lemon zest and juice, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp sugar).
  7. Gradually add milk to get the desired consistency.
