These are the 9 best Paleo salmon recipes to be found. They look so good, I adore salmon and I have to try all of these recipes. So do YOU! I love salmon, I eat it at least once a week. I need more ideas for different ways to prepare it and I thought that maybe you do too. So, I made this list with some great Paleo salmon recipes.
People say for the best flavor and healthiest fish, wild salmon is always best. It can be very expensive and hard to find in a land-locked area though. I always eat it whenever I can because I think it tastes so much better than farmed salmon.
I think grilling or baking is the healthiest way to go, but remember variety is the spice of life!

Salmon is a very easy fish to cook. Its flesh is firm and it holds its shape really well. You can cook it pretty much any way you want and it will stay in one piece. You can grill it, smoke it, poach it or pan fry it. You could also cover it with a walnut crust and bake it in the oven and have dinner ready in a few minutes.

4. Lime and Garlic Salmon – Laughing Spatula
Salmon – Lime – Parsley – Jalapeno – Garlic – Olive Oil – Parsley
This is pretty easy to do. There’s not much to make it. All you do is squeeze a lime, cut up a couple of ingredients, throw them in the food processor. Turn it on and you’re done. You can always let it marinate in the mixture for 30 minutes. That will increase the flavors. But you don’t need to if you don’t have the time. You could buy a bottle of lime juice too then you wouldn’t even have to squeeze the lime. See how lazy I am. I don’t know if it would taste quite the same though.

6. Roasted Salmon with Veggies – Maria Ushakova
All of these salmon recipes are easy enough you could make them on a weeknight. That’s because salmon cooks up quickly. When I make salmon I just roast some crookneck squash, it’s my favorite, but I’ve tried zucchini and it’s good too. Actually, they are quite good mixed together. Then I bake the salmon in the same pan. My salmon bakes up in 15 minutes at 350 degrees. If the oven is already heated it might only take 10 minutes. The secret to baking good salmon is to not overcook it. It gets dry and tasteless. I don’t particularly like cooked tomatoes. But you should try them and decide for yourself.
7. Lemon & Dill Salmon – Evolving Table
Of course, salmon is full of fish oil, the kind that’s really good for your heart. So if you don’t like to take fish oil pills, eating salmon is a really good way to get those nutrients. Lemon and dill is a different combination than other salmon recipes on the post. It’s actually quite tasty. I think you should try all of these and then choose your favorite. Or, maybe you don’t need to choose a favorite. Maybe you’ll like them all. But my suspicions are you’ll have a favorite. We people are all so different, so my favorite might not be the same as yours.
8. One Pan Dill Pistachio Salmon with Veggies – Wholesomelicious
This is another recipe with lemon and dill but this one has leeks, fennel bulbs and zucchini added. I think you probably get the idea by now. Salmon is quite versatile and there many combinations of vegetables and herbs and spices to go together well with it. I could be fun to experiment and come up with your own combinations. Just don’t get too crazy. The pistachio sauce adds an interesting twist to this.
9. One Pan Salmon, Asparagus & Sweet Potato Dinner – Catz in the Kitchen
Here is a new combination of sweet potatoes and asparagus with the salmon. Sounds like an easy complete meal to me. Since sweet potatoes are more readily available in the winter time. This would make a great meal during the cold winter months. It will warm you right up and get you ready for spring. All the nutrients from these superfoods will keep you going for a long time. This is an easy one-pan meal. A big plus in my opinion. Fewer dishes to wash, yeah!
