I am a big fan of salmon. I try to eat salmon at least 2-3x/week for health, skin, nails and also becuase of it's amazing fat content. Lets face it, salmon is one of our "super foods"
Of course it's easy to make and only takes a few minutes when pan searing or even grilling. I created this recipe off the top of my head, "as most of my recipes are created" after my workout. I was starving, worked out earlier in the day, went to coach my athletes and finally made it home.
I needed something fast, something easy and I didn't want red meat (though I love it!). I dug in the refrigerator, saw the salmon and even avocado and I got to work!
One of the fased and easiest meals I created and I plan to do it again, and again, and again!
I hope you enjoyed this as much as I do! Please leave a commentif you tried this simple recipe and let me know how you like it!
Net Carbs: 6.6%
4 oz Salmon
3 cups Arugula
1 tbs lemon or lime juice
1 tsp Old Bay or Cajun Seasoning
2 tbs Coconut Oil Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat your pan on medium heat and add oil (I used Ghee for a buttery flavor). As the pan is warming, add cracked salt and pepper directly to the oil and let simmer for about 30-45s.
Add your salmon skin side down first, and add your seasoning on top. I love cajun style seasonings, but you can also use lemon pepper, garlic salt and thyme. Let this cook uncovered while you prepare your cold foods.
Add arugula to a bowl, slice your avocado longways then crossways for smaller bites and place on left side. Slice strawbrries and add on top of arugula on the right side. Sprinkle Salt and pepper over avocado, arugula and strawberries. Add cajun or your favorite seasoning directly on avocad.
Flip salmon after 2-3 mins and let cook for another 1-2mins with skin side up. When ready, place salmon in the middle. Add lemon/lime juice, and coconut oil and serve!
