This easy healthy recipe uses a salmon fillet. It's a good low carb meal or Paleo eating for health. Simply add salad or vegetables for a nutritious meal.

Seared Salmon Recipe: Ingredients

  • 2 salmon fillets (preferably wild salmon), approx 1 inch thick 5-6 oz each
  • half a 15g pack of fresh cilantro (coriander) finely chopped
  • a generous pinch of ground cinnamon
  • a generous pinch of ground cumin
  • 1 inch stick of peeled root ginger, finely grated
  • grated zest of one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or melted coconut butter
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 level teaspoon of sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper according to taste

Seared Salmon Recipe: Method

(1) Prepare a few hours or even a day in advance the salmon with the marinade rub. This will allow the flavors to fully permeate the salmon.

(2) Using a pestle and mortar, crush the garlic clove with the salt until you have a paste. Add the grated cinnamon, ginger, cumin, finely chopped cilantro (coriander), lemon, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, and several generous grinds of black pepper. Mix well. (If the rub seems too dry to spread easily over the salmon, add a little more coconut oil.)

(3) Spread or rub the mixture on both sides of the salmon fillets. Cover the dish and refrigerate. Leave for several hours or overnight to allow the flavors to permeate the salmon.

(4) When you are ready to cook, place the salmon in a pre-heated non-stick pan, skin side down, and cook several minutes on both sides.

(5) Transfer to plates and serve the seared salmon with vegetables or salad.

Yield: 2 servings. Increase or decrease the ingredients if more or fewer servings are required.
