Grilling season is in full swing and we've got just the recipe to both satisfy your taste buds and boost your brainpower! Featuring 1 tablespoon of MCT Oil per serving, this deliciously simple Keto Baked Salmon and Veggie Packet will take your grilling experience to the next level, delivering a meal that not only looks and tastes like a 5-star dinner, but infuses you with energy, focus, and productivity!
How to Maximize Your Foil Packet Experience:
- USE 100% PURE COCONUT MCT OIL: Instead of cooking your fish in olive oil or coconut oil, try MCT Oil! MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, an essential fatty acid, that can increase metabolism, boost endurance and mood, lower cholesterol, and lower blood sugar levels. It’s a tasteless, odorless oil making it great for cooking!
- GRILL IT OR BAKE IT: If you don’t have access to a grill, this recipe can be cooked in the oven. Preheat the oven to 400. Follow the same directions when preparing the aluminum foil packet. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until salmon is opaque throughout.
- CHOOSE YOUR FISH: Though we recommend using salmon (can you say nutritional powerhouse?!), you can swap out the salmon for halibut or cod if you prefer.
- ADJUST YOUR SERVINGS: As is, this recipe makes four portions. However, if you're making dinner for just one or two, simply scale the ingredients for the appropriate portion size.
