Salmon Bowls

One of my favourite things about living on the west coast is the access I have to fresh seafood. These Salmon Bowls are easily my go-to when I’m looking for a quick and hearty meal to cook up. I usually tend to serve the salmon with some sweet potatoes, avocado and sautéed kale and tomato. The flavour combination is always top-notch.

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks

Instructions
  1. For Salmon:
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F. Cut the salmon into 4 smaller filets.
  3. Dust with Montreal steak spice mixture. Over medium/high heat, melt the olive oil. Lay the seasoned filets face-down in the frying pan. Cook them over medium/high heat for 4 minutes.
  4. Flip the filets then immediately transfer them to the oven. Bake 4-5 minutes for a more rare finish or 6-7 minutes for well done.
  5. For Sauteed Kale and Tomatoes
  6. In a large frying pan, heat the oil
  7. When oil is hot, but not burning, add the garlic and tomatoes.
  8. Sautee until the garlic is fragrant and tomatoes are soft, about 2 min.
  9. Add the kale and using a pair of tongs, rotate the bottom leaves to the top. Continue to do this as the kale cooks down, about 5 - 7 minutes.
  10. For Sweet potatoes
  11. Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small saucepan, melt coconut oil over medium heat. Toss potatoes with oil, salt and pepper together in a large bowl until evenly coated. Spread potatoes in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 40 minutes
  12. Layer salmon, sautéed kale and tomatoes, sweet potatoes and avocado in a bowl and enjoy!
