Broiled Lemon Basil Salmon, Probiotic Carrot & Beet Salad, and Avocado

I love salmon. It’s full of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, and adds beautiful color and flavor to the plate. It’s also quick and easy to make… This whole meal took a total of 15 minutes to make – prep and cook time included! If you can’t get wild caught salmon in your area, you can order it from Vital Choice.

If you hadn’t already noticed, I’ve been starting to blog more recipes. Unfortunately, I’m not as good as Kelsy is at nailing down quantities. Take all my quantities as suggestions!

Broiled Lemon-Basil Salmon

Ingredients
wild caught salmon fillet
1-2 tsp dried or fresh basil
3 Tbsp ghee
2 Tbsp lemon juice
salt
fresh ground black pepper

Directions: Turn on oven to Broil. Rinse your fillet of salmon and pat dry. Heat your ghee in the warming oven. Brush the skin of your salmon with ghee. Place the salmon on broiling pan, skin side down. Mix dried basil and lemon juice into your melted ghee. Brush the salmon with the mixture. Grind pepper and sprinkle salt onto the salmon. Broil about 5 inches from the heating element, 10 minutes for each inch of meat thickness (less for thinner cuts). If your basil starts to burn, you can turn the oven down to 350 and bake instead. The salmon is done when it is opaque and flakes when you poke it with your fork.

I served it with our Probiotic Carrot & Beet Salad and avocado.
