Crispy Salmon Filets Recipe

Crispy Salmon Filet Recipe

This delicious dairy free, gluten free and refined sugar free salmon recipe is easy enough to add into your regular rotation, and exciting enough to impress guests at gatherings - this super simple, nutrient dense salmon recipe is guaranteed to become one of your go-to proteins!



INGREDIENTS

1 pound Fresh Salmon - cut into four filets

~2 tbsp Coconut Oil

1 tbsp+ Natural Sea Salt - Saltery's Duxbury Salt is my favorite!


METHOD

Pat the salmon dry and rub the fleshy side of the filet with sea salt.


In a large pan, heat the coconut oil at just over medium heat (it should be fully covering the bottom of the pan in a thin but solid layer) until the pan is so hot that the heat can be felt coming off the pan, then add the salmon filets to the pan flesh side down, cover the pan with a lid, and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the skin easily peels from the flesh.


Remove the skin from the filet (it will easily release from the flesh when it's finished cooking sufficiently), flip using a spatula, season the filets with a pinch of sea, re-cover the pan, and continue cooking 3-5 minutes until the flesh is opaque and flaky all the way through and both sides of the filet are crisp and browned.



NOTES

My favorite ways to enjoy this recipe are with roasted butternut squash and a simple Cashew Cream Sauce, as an addition to one of my favorite salads (the Tahini Dream Kale Salad and Rainbow Cafe Bowl are my favorites!), or as a cold dish with chopped green apple, avocado, pecan and a simple Honey Dijon Dressing.
