Orange and Mint Summer Salmon

I'm so excited about this amazingly tasty and beautiful summer salmon recipe. I love this recipe because it's simple, healthy and packed full of omega 3's. Omega 3's have been show to reduce cholesterol and inflammation and has also been show to help with symptoms of depression as well as increase focus. So, eat up!

(Serves about 2)

1 lb wild salmon
1 whole orange
1/2 white onion
1 yellow zucchini
1 TBSP grass-fed butter
8-10 mint leaves
Splash of white wine (optional)
2 TBSP water
Salt and pepper to taste


Heat cast iron pan with grass fed butter.

Chop onion and sauté until translucent in pan.

Slice zucchini and add to the pan. Sauté for 1-2 minutes.

Place salmon on pan with skin side down.

Slice orange into quarters and squeeze juice into pan. Place orange slices in pan too.

Pour 2 TBSP of water in pan along with a splash of white wine.

Cover and cook on high for 5-7 minutes.

Salmon is done when flaky. Sprinkle chopped mint over the top and salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with a side salad and/or roasted veggies.

Enjoy! xo Darby
