Saffron Salmon

Here is a flashback Friday recipe to kick off the weekend! Super easy and delicious “Saffron Salmon”. It’s always so much fun to look how far we have come since I started this website. I came up with this light recipe while dining with friends and reminiscing about a meal they frequently enjoyed having at a local restaurant. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and had to recreate it on my own. It takes a mere 5 to 7 minutes to prepare the entire meal. And ghee acts a the perfect crisping agent for the fish while sea salt and saffron infuse the fish with subtle yet delicious flavor. It’s quick, easy, healthy and filling! you’re going to check mark all of the boxes with this easy salmon recipe.

I hope that you enjoy this flashback recipe and have a fantastic weekend. And be sure to check in next week for some great Easter recipes and ideas for you and your families.

Saffron Salmon

Two 6-8oz Salmon Filets (Skin on, crisp skin is always a GOOD thing! :))

Sea salt, to taste.

2 teaspoons saffron

2 tablespoons ghee (grass fed pure butter)

 

*You simply heat a skillet on medium high and melt the ghee. While the pan is heating season both sides of the fish with a generous coating of coarse sea salt and the saffron. Place the fish skin side down for about 3-4 mins or until skin is crisp and golden. Flip and finish cooking until your preferred doneness. I like my salmon well done but moist, so 2 minutes did the trick for me.

Serve the salmon with some lemon slices for freshness, next to a bed of mixed greens and tomatoes! I lightly season them with salt, pepper and olive oil. So fresh! You can find my own brand of olive oil at “Cook Homemade.”

 

Enjoy!
