Here's How To Make Low Carb Citrus Glazed Salmon:

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Pat your salmon dry, and season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper. Place the salmon skin side down on a cast iron skillet or casserole dish on top of just a dollop of oil to prevent it from sticking.

Layer the fish with very thin slices of lemon and orange. This will begin to infuse the fish with the citrus flavor and keep it moist in the oven while it cooks. Place the salmon in the oven, uncovered, and cook for about 15 minutes. The salmon will not be cooked thru all the way when you take it out. 
Meanwhile, begin making the glaze. Mince up your shallot really fine. Set it aside. In a small bowl, add the orange, lemon and lime juice. You will probably need to strain the juice with a small metal sieve to remove any chunks or bits.  
Next, add in your SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops™ to taste. We found about 1 tsp to be perfect, but adjust according to your tastes. You may want to start with about 1 tsp, and then add in your olive oil and other ingredients before adjusting. The sweetener may have a slight bitter aftertaste at first, but will mellow out when you add in the other ingredients.

Add in your olive oil, minced shallots, and parsley. 
Add in your salt and pepper. Whisk everything together. Set aside. 
Now, remove your salmon from the oven after about 15 minutes. It should be almost cooked thru. Remove the citrus slices and set aside. Place the salmon on some tin foil that will be big enough to wrap up. We will do this to lock in the juices and moisture while we finish cooking it. 
 
Next, cover the salmon with the glaze, then layer the citrus back on top. Wrap the foil tightly before putting it back in the oven. Don’t worry about the excess oil and juice. This will poach the fish really nicely, and will make for a great dressing for your salad at the end. The salmon will need to cook for probably about 10-15 more minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 145°F. 
Now, serve the salmon with any side you’d like. We think a nice fresh salad is great. We dress the salmon and salad with the excess glaze. Garnish with more parsley. 
Now, just serve and enjoy!
