Roasted salmon is one of the few dishes you can pull together in a really short amount of time. But Paleo Nick’s Lemon Pepper Roasted Salmon with Pickled Onions and Caper Remoulade takes things up a notch – or ten.
The salmon is a simple mix of lemon pepper seasoning – have you checked out the Paleo Grind yet? – with olive oil and a some fresh dill. While the salmon bakes, you’ll throw together a quick pickle and whip up some Massie Mayo for the caper remoulade. It all sounds fancy, but trust us, this is all a breeze.
Garnish that roasted salmon with the onions and some fresh dill, and serve it all up with a squeeze of lemon and some of the caper remoulade. Quick, impressive, delicious, and the easiest way imaginable to…“Keep It Paleo!”
Lemon Pepper Roasted Salmon with Pickled Onions
Ingredients for Pickled Onions:
Ingredients for Massie Mayo:
Ingredients for Caper Remoulade:
For the Salmon:
We are going to assume the fillet is about 30oz once cooked (about 5 portions), and with 1.5oz giving us one block, that gives us 20 protein blocks from the salmon.
For the Pickled onions:
Between the onion and the pepper, we are going to round up for easy math and say that we get 1 carb block, ½ from each of them.
For the Mayo: (yielding 2 cups, but only 1 cup used in this recipe)
We are using 1 egg plus one yolk so we will call it 2 blocks for easy math.
We are using 2 cups of extra light olive oil. 1/3 of a teaspoon equals one block, and there are 48 teaspoons in one cup. Since there are two cups we have 96 teaspoons at three blocks each, so total we have 288 blocks of fat.
When we combine this all together, we can divide the filet into 5 portions, with each portion giving us 4 protien blocks. The fats are coming from the mayo. We are using only one cup of the mayo recipe which will give us 144 blocks if we use the whole thing. There are 16 tablespoons in a cup so if we use one tbsp. for our garnish, then we have 9 Fat blocks with our 4 protein blocks. Our carbs blocks in this recipe are so small that we wont add them into the total and therefore you can add 4 carb blocks to balance this meal out.
