Salmon and guacamole, with ginger broccoli & red pepper [Paleo recipes]

21 Sep

This one is kind of a go-to favourite of mine. Takes all of 10 minutes to throw together and tastes amazing. Even better, it has a terrific breakdown of macronutrients to satisfy even the hardened Zone follower.


  • 2x Salmon steaks (with or without skin)
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 2x ripe/soft avocados
  • 1x red onion, finely chopped
  • 1x lime, squeezed
  • 1x small, red chilli pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1x tsp of garlic powder
Guacamole ingredients

1. Heat up your grill* (either oven or George Foreman-style)

2. Pat dry the salmon steaks, and lightly salt/pepper both sides


3. Peel avocados, and place in a bowl with onion, chilli pepper, garlic powder and lime juice. Mash into a lumpy pulp with a fork


4. Grill salmon until cooked, but still a little pink in the middle (roughly 4-8mins depending on grill type)

5. Mix broccoli, red pepper and ginger in a microwaveable dish with 1tbsp of water. Microwave on ‘high’ for 90-120 seconds**

6. Serve salmon on a plate with vegetables and a large dollop of fresh guacamole. Commence eating immediately!

*Pan fried salmon works quite well, too.

**If you don’t have a microwave, then the broccoli, peppers and ginger can be steamed, although this does take a little longer.
