Coconut Lime Seared Salmon [Paleo] [Low Carb]

At a junction between the Superbowl and Super Tuesday, I thought I'd send you a delicious salmon recipe of ours and a little reminder: Don't forget to vote tomorrow (Feb 5th)! Before heading out to vote, please consider the once-in-a-lifetime candidate for president, Ron Paul. Thanks - enjoy :)

4 fillets fresh or frozen (defrosted) wild caught Alaskan salmon with skin
lemon juice
squeeze lime juice
sea salt and pepper
4 T. organic virgin coconut oil (or olive oil) for frying

sprinkle dill and lemon seasoning

Coconut Lime Sauce:
1 can organic coconut milk
1/3 c. lime juice
peel of fresh lime, grated for zest
handful organic no-sulfur shredded coconut (extra for garnish)
slices of fresh lime, garnish

Prepare your coconut sauce by combining and stirring all the lime sauce ingredients in a large bowl. Once mixed, poor roughly two-thirds of the glaze and salmon in a leak proof bag and let marinate for at least 30 minutes for the flavors to meld.

Coat your grill with olive oil (spray or otherwise). Grill the salmon for 2-3 minutes per side - we like our salmon rare-medium, depending on freshness. Once the salmon is done to your liking, remove it from the grill and drizzle over the remaining coconut lime sauce. Sprinkle the coconut flakes on top and serve hot with a wedge of fresh lime.

As I mentioned previously in my Balsamic Molasses Grilled Salmon, eat the skin of the salmon to ingest the good Omega 3 fats. I know that sounds repulsive to some (my parents), but the Omega 3's are found right under the skin. In his nutritional bible Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill, Udo Erasmus cites the areas right underneath the skin, around the gills, fins, and belly as the sites of Omega 3 fish oil stores (pg. 263 in case you're curious). The good Omega 3 fats are a class of essential fats which our bodies cannot synthesize on their own, so they must come from our diet. The American/Western diet is lacking in quality fat (fish oils, coconut oil, hemp, flax, and olive oil), consumes far too much processed food, and has a highly distorted Omega3:Omega 6 ratio. This imbalance heightens the necessity for one to supplement his/her diet with more Omega 3 fats. Don't worry, the good fat is metabolized quickly and efficiently in the body, so it is not stored; you will not "get fat" by eating the correct fats. Indeed, the opposite is true when reasonable consumption of quality fats are included in the diet. Besides, salmon is virtually adored by everyone (vegan excluded, of course :) ), so dig in!

  1. This sounds delicious! My man loves salmon...so we'll be trying this. Thx.

  2. Thank you so much for this site- one of my dear friends has recently been diagnosed with a gluten allergy and I had no idea of what to cook for her family when we have them over.

    THis way I can be thoughtful and keep my friend from feeling like she has to plan ALL her meals.

    And thanks for letting me list my site -

  3. I just read your article about coconut yogurt and I wanted to see what else you had to say about coconut. This one sounds really good! The best fish I've ever had was in southeast Asia, and the sauce they used was a coconut sauce. I've got to try this one. Thanks for the great ideas!

  4. I love salmon, along with many other types of seafood, so thanks for the omega-3 loaded recipe!
    Plus, this type of cuisine is especially great if you're on the Caveman Diet!

  5. Cooked this yesterday and turned out more than tasty!
