This recipe is SUPER Flavorful, quick to make and SO healthy! Even your kiddos will enjoy it. My toddler gobbles it up! Enjoy!
Ingredients: Serves 4 (although let’s be honest…you’ll want seconds)
4 filets of salmon
3 Tablespoons of organic Olive oil
1/2 red onion finely diced
1 medium sized granny apple chopped to 1/4 inch cubes
1 tsp of mustard (I like to use spicy brown)
3-6 cloves of garlic chopped (depends on how much garlic you like)
1 tsp of paprika
1/4 tsp of creole seasoning
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Preheat a large non stick skillet to just above medium with 2 Tablespoons of olive oil. Add apples, garlic and onions and mustard to skillet and stir until apples are cooked and there’s a slight crisp on the edges. Remove them from pan, leaving behind as much juice and oil as possible.
Add the rest of the olive oil into the skillet and turn the heat up a teeny bit and add the salmon. Sprinkle the salmon with black pepper, paprika and creole seasoning from about 8-10 inches high…this will help you spread the seasoning more evenly across the fish.
When the bottom of the fish has a nice crust, flip them in the pan. Using a citrus juicer, squeeze lemon juice over each filet of fish while it continues to cook. After 3-4 minutes on this side, remove from heat and let it rest a minute before plating.
Pro-tip: Cooking fish is very fast. I prefer to eat mine medium rare, If you over cook it, it gets tough. The key is to pull it from heat while its flakey.
Serve this dish with apple onion relish on top of the fish.
I like to eat this salmon with a simple oil and vinegar tossed salad, and Near East brand cous cous which can be found in most grocery stores. It only takes 5 minutes to cook and the directions are super simple to follow on the back of the box.
