Ingredients


454 gm Atlantic salmon, wild (Four 4-oz fillets)
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
2 1/2 tsp Salt
2 1/2 tsp Black pepper
2 avocado(s) Avocado (pitted)
1 tbsp Dill, fresh
1 tbsp Parsley, fresh
2 green onion (stem) Green onion, scallion, ramp
1 whole lemon(s) Lemon juice
2 of 2 lemons Lemon peel (zest)
1 tsp Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret (or gluten-free tamari)
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Onion powder
4 cup Spinach (or kale or collard greens)
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 tbsp Coconut oil

Instructions


1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.

2. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper, and place the salmon filets on the sheet.

3. Sprinkle with olive oil and 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper. Put in the oven and roast until cooked through, about 20-25 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, make the sauce. In a blender, place all ingredients avocados, dill, parsley, green onions, juice and zest of 1 lemon, coconut aminos, garlic powder, onion powder, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper. Blend until smooth. Add water or broth throughout to achieved desired consistency.

5. During the last 5-7 minutes of the salmon cooking, make the greens.

6. Heat a pan over medium heat with coconut oil until hot. Throw in garlic, and sauté 1-2 minutes. Then add spinach and stir until all spinach is wilted and bright green. If it starts to take on the colour of those yucky canned green beans you’ve cooked it too long! Just before serving, add remaining lemon juice, salt and pepper.

7. Take out salmon once cooked and flaking easily. Serve on top of spinach drizzled with avocado sauce.
