Hey guys! Be one step closer to your goals or maintain your healthy lifestyle by eating this yummy and nutritious salmon. Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamin B12, B6 and D. Sometimes the simplest meals make the best ones! Have a great day!

Recipe: adapted from Damn Delicious

4 salmon filets
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 tablespoons raw honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
Zest of 1 lime

For the browned butter lime sauce
4 tablespoons grass fed butter
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 tablespoon raw honey
Juice of 1 lime
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400ยฐF.

To make the browned butter lime sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until the foam subsides and the butter begins to turn a golden brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic, honey and lime juice, salt and pepper, to taste; set aside.

Season salmon with salt and pepper, to taste. Drizzle each salmon filet with 1 tablespoon honey.

Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add salmon to the skillet and sear both sides until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side.

Place into oven and bake until completely cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.

Serve immediately with browned butter lime sauce and lime zest, if desired.

    This look absolutely delicious! Thank you for the recipe. i’ll have to try this myself sometime soon!

    The point of the Paleo diet is, and I feel some people forget this, to not only diet, but to eat delicious foods at the same time. It’s the only diet I’ve come across that cuts out food groups, yet still focusses on everyone’s need to eat great food.

    I’m a real foodie, and would not survive on any other diet, but Paleo has been very good for me. I’ve written about one of my favourite cookbooks: http://cookbook-reviews.net/review-the-paleo-recipe-book/
