Salmon, garlic and oozing butter! I can’t think of a better combination 🤩
This fat fueled dinner is a weekly staple in our house and supplies us with ample healthy fat including brain boosting omega fatty acids 👏🏻
In addition to the essential fatty acids, salmon is a complete protein and contains many trace minerals and nutrients.
We get our salmon from Vital Choice Seafood, usually we get king salmon or sockeye. The sockeye is a bit firmer in texture which I prefer, but my parents like the king salmon better. Both are great choices. When choosing your butter, you can get a pre-made garlic herb butter such as that from Lewis Road Creamery, or you can make your own using this recipe 🧈
To make this dish (1 filet per person) you need:
6-8 ounces of salmon per person 🍣
Garlic butter for poaching 🧈
Sea salt 🧂
Curry powder 🌶
Garlic and onion powder 🧅🧄
Begin by heating up the butter in a pan on low heat. You want to make sure to not heat the butter up too high because it’s smoke point isn’t that high. If you prefer, you can cook the salmon in ghee or avocado oil or another ancestral fat, and add the garlic butter when it’s cooked.
While the butter is melting, pat the salmon filets dry, cut them into strips and then place them skin side down into the molten butter so they can slowly cook. If using garlic butter, add salt and as much garlic/onion powder as you like, in addition to a dollop of garlic butter that will melt over the fish 🐠
After 3-4 minutes, flip the salmon and cook for another 4-5 minutes until it’s at your desired doneness. Season with curry powder and garlic and herb seasoning.
