coconut oil roasted salmon
This is to make up for Monday's mac and cheese post. It's all about balance, right?
This is a perfect way to make salmon for anything - this would be awesome on a salad, on top of lentils, with some roasted veggies or brown rice on the side. The possibilities are endless here; this isn't really a recipe, more of a method for getting you great salmon in no time.
Are you using coconut oil for everything yet? It's crazy how versatile this stuff is. There are posts floating all over blogs and Pinterest telling you how coconut oil can do everything but fill out your taxes for you, so I won't go on about it here. Let's just make some salmon!
Coconut Oil Roasted Salmon
2 (4-5 oz.) pieces of salmon
2 tsp. coconut oil, melted
salt, pepper, and paprika for seasoning
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place salmon pieces, skin side down, onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Brush each piece with melted coconut oil and season with salt, pepper, and paprika. Roast for 10 minutes. Remove salmon from the oven and cover with aluminum foil, allowing to rest for 5-10 minutes.
Serve with whatever you like and enjoy!
