I love simple, 2 or 3 ingredient recipes, especially during the summer. We have a few of them for Wild Alaskan Salmon (see below for info on why we don’t eat farmed salmon), but this one my daughter (I’ll call her Crossfit Paleo girl) created. She loves to cook, but even she has been doing a lot less of it this summer. It’s just been so hot!
Here’s a photo of her doing a one legged squat while we were by a small river in Vermont:
Here’s the very simple recipe, which Crossfit Paleo girl said was not really a recipe at all because it is so simple. I disagree! She actually has some pretty gourmet recipes that I’m hoping to share with you all sometime, but probably not until the fall.
We eat wild salmon once a week. It’s so much healthier than farmed salmon (see links below), which isn’t real food to me, since it’s not raised in its natural setting. It’s only available from May through October, so if your local fish store has it year round, I’d be a little bit suspicious of its authenticity.
During the winter and spring, we order ours frozen from Vital Choice, which is a fantastic company, with many products backed by medical professionals. It’s nice to be able to pull it out of the freezer to make a quick and easy meal, without having to buy it fresh all the time. If you want to check it out, here’s my affiliate link. They have Copper River salmon available for a limited time, which is wonderful too.
Yes, yes, I know that Wild Alaskan Salmon is more expensive than farmed salmon, but if you’re really trying to clean up your diet and lifestyle, it’s worth the splurge. If it’s not once a week, then once a month or so.
What I’ve found is that after you’ve been eating high quality food choices for a while, the meals you get at home are better than the ones you get at a restaurant! So, I’d rather eat well at home than eat a questionable meal out any day, especially when it’s quick and easy like this.
I suggest pairing this recipe with a side of steamed broccoli or spinach, and baked or mashed sweet potatoes, or roasted sweet potatoes. You add a lot of nutrients, color, and flavor that way.
