Lemon Garlic Herb Crusted Paleo Salmon Recipe

Posted on

We have an easy baked fish recipe for you – lemon garlic herb crusted Paleo salmon. This fish is light and flaky and full of flavor. It only takes 10 minutes to bake this dish. It would be delicious with some wild rice or cauliflower rice, french bread and/or your choice of vegetables (all depending on what diet you are on, of course). This is great for a quick, hearty meal. This recipe could work well on any type of fish, especially halibut or trout.

I don’t know about you, but fish used to scare me. I live in the middle of the country where it’s hard to find good, fresh fish – especially wild-caught fish. I love to order fish in restaurants, but for a long time I was scared to cook it at home. It’s so easy to over cook it and confusing picking it out. But I get so sick of chicken and beef and fish is so healthy for you – especially salmon. So I came up with this Paleo salmon recipe so I would have a good go-to recipe for cooking fish.

This is a really good meal to make and impress your guests. Since it cooks so quickly, I just wait until my guests arrive and then throw it in my pre-heated oven. They are always impressed and it’s so easy. I even like to do this with frozen fish, like the tilapia or halibut that Costco has. My 10 year old son makes it often because fish is his favorite protein – so if he can do it, you can do it (hopefully. . .).

I love this fish because it is super easy to prepare(5 minutes or less) and is fresh and colorful. This recipe would also be great using other types of fish, such as tilapia or halibut. Honestly, it is compatible with almost any fish.


  • 3 oz Butter Ghee for Whole30
  • 1 tsp Coarse Real Salt
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • 1 T Fresh Parsley chopped
  • 1 t Fresh Dill chopped
  • 1 Clove Garlic minced
  • Dash of White Pepper
  • 4 4-5 oz Wild Salmon Fillets


  1. Place all ingredients except for salmon in a small bowl and melt in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.
  2. Stir until combined.
  3. Place the salmon fillets on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  4. Using a pastry brush, coat the salmon with the lemon herb butter, evenly spreading it over the tops of each fillet.
  5. Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees on the top or second to top rack for 10-12 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  6. Alternately the fish can be broiled on medium/high on the second to top rack for 8-10 minutes, or until cooked through. This method will give you a bit more crunchy, caramelized crust.
    Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
