Asian Salmon (Paleo, Whole30, AIP)
Servings: 4 servings
This salmon recipe is packed with flavor and is quick and easy to make. It's Paleo, Whole30, and AIP
- 1/2 cup Coconut Aminos (see notes to make coconut-free)
- 1/4 cup Orange Juice (freshly squeezed best)
- 1 tbs Lemon Juice
- 2 cloves Garlic (minced)
- 1 tbs fresh Ginger (grated or minced)
- 1 lb Salmon (cut into 4 equal portions)
- 2 Green Onions (white and green parts, chopped)
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
Combine all ingredients except for the salmon and place in a glass baking dish. Add the salmon and marinate for 30 min to 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Heat an oven-safe frying pan or cast iron skillet on medium-high heat.
Once the pan is hot, take the salmon out of the marinade (reserving the marinade) and sear salmon 1 minute on each side.
Pour the marinade into the frying pan and bake in the the oven for 5-10 minutes until the fish easily flakes with a fork (5 for thinner slices, 10 for thicker).
To make this coconut-free: You can either omit the coconut aminos or you could also make your own coconut-free coconut aminos using this recipe by Mel Joulwan. I recommend making a batch of this and freezing it in an ice cube tray, giving you approx 2 tbs of “coconut aminos/soy sauce” per ice cube to use whenever you need it!
