Paleo Salmon Recipe

October 14, 2012

One of my favorite paleo recipes is Salmon. It is delicious, easy and quick. Salmon is an especially healthy meat because it has high amount of omega 3 which helps reduce inflamation.

Ingredients:

  • Salmon
  • Lemon Juice
  • Coconut Water
  • Dill
  • Thyme
salmon ingredients: coconut water lemon juice dill thyme

Ingredients: salmon, coconut water, lemon juice, dill and thyme.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Put a large piece of tinfoil on a cooking sheet.
  3. Place salmon on tinfoil and fold tinfoil around the salmon, leaving top open.
  4. Pour lemon juice and coconut water over salmon, just enough to wet the top surface of the salmon without submerging the salmon.
  5. Season the salmon in dill and thyme.
  6. Fold the tinfoil over the salmon so it is completely wrapped.
  7. Cook salmon for 15 to 20 minutes (15 minutes if 8 oz or less, 20 minutes for 2 lbs).

Cooked salmon should be light pink instead of the dark pink that raw salmon is. It should be flaky and have small blobs of fat collected on the surface.
