Game Winning Salmon!

I hope I don’t jinx myself with the title, but this salmon recipe is truly delicious and my husband did win a big game the night after I made this meal… so I’m sticking with the title.

This is another great quick and easy salmon recipe that takes about 30 mins total. I am all about a sweet and savory dinner. This recipe is just that! I cut out majority of the bad fat by using coconut oil. The fish came out moist and buttery without using any actual butter. Perfect! I paired it with a delicious homemade mango salsa which I will post the recipe for following this post. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do!

*** I also paired the fish with oven roasted asparagus. place the asparagus in a baking sheet drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle with coarse sea salt (any salt will work but I love using the coarse sea salt) bake in the oven at 425 for about 15 mins. ***

Ingredients

6 salmon fillets (6oz each) – i used king salmon

salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp of both freshly grated ginger and garlic

3/4 cup of brown sugar

handful of coarsely chopped pecans

2 tbsp of coconut oil

Preheat your oven to 425. Place your salmon fillets in a baking dish and add a generous pinch of salt and pepper to coat the fillets. Add your ginger and garlic to the fillets. In a bowl combine your pecans, brown sugar and coconut oil to form a paste. Place the mixture over top of the fillets and pat it down to ensure good coverage. Pop the baking dish in the oven for about 20 mins. The brown sugar mixture will bake and bubble up to form the most delicious crust on top of the salmon. Its that easy! Yummy! (serves 6!)

Try it and comment below and let me know what you think 🙂 Be sure to top it with the mango salsa. It is such a good pairing! Enjoy!

  1. This might not be related but if Riley doesn’t go to school yet I recommend little stars preschool. They have a baby room with great teachers. It is on 14th street next to mcdonalds and across the street from subway. On Friday they sometimes go to the farmers market and then go to the park.
