Paleo Buffalo Salmon
Serves: 1 serving
  • 1 salmon steak, 4-6 ounces (vegan option: 1 portabello mushroom)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoon's Frank's hot sauce (or other paleo-friendly hot sauce)
  1. Heat a pan to medium and add coconut oil. Let melt and carefully mix in hot sauce (it will spatter). Add your salmon steak and cook about 3-4 minutes per side. You can eat this as-is or, if you're a flexitarian like me who isn't a fan of JUST meat, shred it with forks and add it to a spinach salad, coleslaw or even an egg salad for a tasty, spicy, protein boost!
  2. I tasted a bite straight out of the pan and, while I loved the buffalo flavor, it was still pretty fishy (to me). So, I shredded it with a fork and tossed it into a big spinach salad with a splash more hot sauce for dressing and it was delicious! I want to try it in tons of other dishes now (egg salad, coleslaw, frittatas, etc.). What's your favorite way to eat salmon?
