One of the best parts of the paleo diet is the high amount of Omega-3 fatty acids you get in grass-fed beef and in seafood like this Paleo Maple Salmon!
- 8 – 6 oz. salmon fillets
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
- 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
- ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ cup gluten-free soy sauce
- ¼ to ½ cup grade-B maple syrup
- Rinse and dry your salmon fillets.
- Rub each with a lemon wedge.
- Brush 2 teaspoons of oil onto the fleshy side of the salmon (to help the seasoning adhere).
- In a bowl, mix the nutmeg, cinnamon, garlic powder, salt, onion powder and black pepper together.
- Sprinkle each fillet with spice mix. Let sit covered in fridge for 1 hour.
- Heat skillet and coat bottom with 2 teaspoons of oil.
- When oil is hot, place salmon in skillet, flesh side down, and cook over high heat for about 4 minutes or until brown. Turn over and cook for an additional 4 minutes.
- In a saucepan, mix together the soy sauce and maple syrup over medium heat until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon (about 7 to 10 minutes).
- Drizzle sauce over salmon fillets and serve.
