I’ve never had a great relationship with seafood. In fact, for most of my life, sushi was the only way I’d eat it. Ideally, a roll with cream cheese, avocado, and lots of sauce to mask the flavor. Well, I branched out a bit after taking on the autoimmune protocol, considering that seafood is one of the best sources of B vitamins and omega-3 fats. This Salmon with Wasabi Sauce is a throwback to my sushi days, a rich and hearty dish that packs some punch. If you can’t find AIP-friendly wasabi and haven’t done reintroductions yet, you can substitute it with AIP-friendly horseradish or even some fresh ginger.

I know diet change can feel overwhelming. I started the autoimmune protocol at a time when only four other people were writing about it, and over the years, I’ve striven to give you the resources I wish I’d had when I got started. Not just recipes, but ways to implement them. My first ebook 28 Days of AIP is a meal plan that will help you get going (or get back on the wagon) with as little fuss as possible. With a variety of simple, delicious recipes, plenty of leftovers so you don’t spend all your free time in the kitchen, and shopping lists ready to go, all you have to do is follow the plan, then sit down and enjoy your meal!

- Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper on each side, then heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and coat with coconut oil.
- Cook the salmon about 4 minutes on each side, until there is a golden-brown, crispy skin on the outside and the inside has cooked through.
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over high heat, bring the vinegar, aminos, honey, ginger, and wasabi to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-high and stir until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
- Serve the salmon topped with the sauce and green onions for garnish.
