I’m a mom. I have 3 kids. To say that my personal and professional lives are “insane” is an understatement. So, I know that great meals need to be nutritious, delicious and also quick, easy and not take 45 ingredients that I don’t have on hand. 

 
A friend of mine sent me an email asking for my personal favorite simple meal. This is one that I can whip up quickly and always makes my family happy and it’s only 8 ingredients start to finish. 
 
Wild caught seafood is always my go to and here is why… variety, nutrient density, and the ability to go from frozen to the plate quickly without much planning. Our favorites include salmon and shrimp. 
 
Simple Salmon

Ingredients
  1. 2 salmon fillets (approx. 1 lb. of wild caught salmon total)
  2. EVOO (optional)
  3. Fresh dill sprigs
  4. Grass fed Ghee (salted or add sea salt if unsalted)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a glass baking dish with the EVOO or just use the butter/ghee. I like the EVOO because it prevents the fish from sticking. Add the fillets to bakeware. With kitchen shears cut up the dill and sprinkle approx. 1 TBS to cover each filet. Top with 1 TBS of grass fed butter/ghee (season filets first with sea salt if you are using unsalted butter).
  2. Bake for 15-20 minutes until salmon is firm and cooked through.
