Sweet and Sour Salmon

Servings 4 servings


  • 4 skinless salmon fillets 6-oz.
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate salmon overnight or for at least 4 hours (see recipe). Place salmon fillets in a large zipper-topped plastic bag.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together next 6 ingredients (coco-aminos through black pepper); pour over salmon, seal the bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours, turning occasionally.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove fillets from marinade (reserving marinade) and add to the hot skillet; sear for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork; remove from skillet and keep warm.
  • Whisk reserved marinade into the skillet; bring a low boil for 3 minutes then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes; serve over salmon.
