Maple salmon with mango salsa

Ok, one of these days I will get my real camera ready and take nicer pics!  All the other Paleo bloggers out there have beautiful photos of their food and then here is me with my “Just about to eat this” picture… sorry.  If you knew my schedule you would probably forgive me and if you have ever cooked any of my food then I am almost 100% certain you don’t give a rats ass!  Anywho.

Salmon! The fish of the Gods (or a big fat Tuna steak also GOD like) was on our plates this evening.  This recipe is another one I came up with in between coaching clients today.  My brain has been on mega inventive lately and thankfully it has paid off.  Sometimes I worry about getting a little too inventive and the flavors not mixing how my mind has envisioned but this was freeking delicious, I was so happy for left overs!

salt and pepper



Heat your oven to 350F. Place the salmon skin side down on either a foil or parchment paper lined tray.  Season the fish with salt and pepper, sprinkle with maple flakes and lay the lime slices over top.  Bake for about 10min on the top rack or until it is med rare.  Don’t overcook salmon, you kill the goodness of this fish.  Sometimes I will turn the oven off at 10 min if the fish is still a little under done and leave it for anothr 5 min, this works pretty well. Serve with the mango salsa and fried plantains.

What I’m reading/trying

This book has been instrumental in getting my energy levels back with training. Whilst this is not Paleo, many of the principals can be adapted and still follow a very clean Paleo diet. Read my post on Paleo and Carb Back-loading HERE

About the Recipes

All the recipes you see on my site are made up by me, unless otherwise stated. I love to experiment in the kitchen and as you can see my photo's are not all fancy, they are usually taken with my phone just as I am about to dish up. These are real tried and true recipes that work, if they didn't I wouldn't post it. I hope you enjoy my cooking as much as I do.
