Super Simple Paleo Fish Dish

So friend asked me today for a good fish recipe. This rub works really well on just about any fish. We tried it out on Cod and it was really tasty. Hope you guys like it as much as we did.

Super Simple Paleo Fish Dish

2-3 lbs of fish fillets
2 tbsp almond flour
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp curry powder
1/8 tsp ginger
coconut oil

Heat a large skillet to medium high heat with coconut oil. In small dish, mix together almond flour, salt, curry and ginger. Rub both sides of the fish with a healthy coat of the seasoning mix. Place fish in the pan and cook until fish easily releases from the pan. Flip and cook until fish is done (cooking times will vary depending on the type of fish). Serve and enjoy!!

Paleo Mediterranean Chicken

There is a fantastic restaurant here in Fayetteville, NC. It really is one of the only good restaurants here. Its called the Mash House, and their Heart Healthy Chicken dish helped inspire my Mediterranean chicken recipe. In their dish there is eggplant and tomato, so I decided to switch it up a bit. My variation was delicious. The best part is that the topping is mostly vegetables, so feel free to go a little heavy on it.

Paleo Mediterranean Chicken

2-3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 onion, minced
2 zucchini, chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, cut into small pieces
14 oz can artichoke, cut into small pieces
2 2.25 oz cans sliced kalamata olives, chopped
sea salt and pepper, to taste
oil (we used avocado)

Preheat oven to 350. In large oven safe skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Sear the chicken breast on both sides until golden brown. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. In another skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and saute until translucent. Add zucchini and cook until zucchini is just cooked through. Add peppers, artichokes and olives. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until warmed through. Serve veggie mix over the chicken breasts. Enjoy!

Super easy Paleo Crockpot Beef Brisket

So unfortunately, I did not get to taste this meal. I made it for my boys and hubby on a day that I was going out of town. My hubby said it was so good that they ate it all. Therefore, no pictures of it and no description of its taste. :) I can tell you it smelled like a home cooked beef stew or pot roast. Hope you like this one! I know I will be making it again as it was hubby and kid approved.

Paleo Slow Cooker Beef Brisket

3 lbs beef brisket (trimmed of extra fat)
1 cup broth (I used vegetable)
1/4 cup dried minced onion
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp sea salt
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 cup water
1 bag baby carrots
1 onion, cut into chunks
1/2 tsp thyme
1 bay leaf
Pepper to taste

Place beef in crockpot. Place all other ingredients in. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Serve and enjoy!
