For some reason salmon always sounds like a good idea, but then sometimes I just don’t look forward to it once it’s on the meal plan for the week. BUT….it’s packed with so many healthy benefits, and we are really trying to make an effort to eat more salmon and seafood. These easy Paleo salmon salad bowls are the perfect way to sneak more salmon in and make a meal that you will absolutely look forward to making again!
If you’ve been following along with us for any amount of time, you’ve probably noticed I LOVE to make bowl meals! I don’t know exactly what it is about a bowl that just makes me enjoy whatever I’m eating that much more, but I do! So there’s that…and this is another tasty bowl recipe! This Paleo salmon salad is a quick and easy recipe – only about 30 minutes. It’s also super flavorful, and your body will love the healthy fats and colorful veggies!
The Green Sauce
In addition to loving bowls, I adore avocado and avocado based sauces! This one is a lemony, avocado sauce with a little bit of dijon mustard thrown in there. It’s super tasty, and you can add water to thin it out until it reaches your desired consistency. We love it a little thicker and creamier.
Eating More Fish
A goal of ours for 2018 is to eat more seafood and power our bodies with healthy fats, lean protein and nutrient dense foods. It sounds easy, but it’s also hard for some reason. We’ve found that when our freezer is stocked with seafood it does two things. First, we eat it because it’s there and what is readily available. Second, we eat more variety of seafood – salmon, scallops, swordfish, shrimp, tuna, etc. It’s amazing! That’s why we are SO excited about a newer fish delivery service – Fish Fixe! They’ve helped to keep our freezer stocked and the creative juices flowing for developing new seafood recipes!

Easy Paleo Salmon Salad Bowls (Whole30 + Keto)
- 8 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
- 4 salmon fillets, (of about even size)
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- salt and pepper
- Veggies, (whatever you have on hand - we used cucumber, carrots, tomatoes and kraut)
For the dressing:
- 1 avocado, pitted and peeled
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1 lemon, juice of
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place salmon fillets on baking sheet and season with the smoked paprika, garlic powder and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Place in the oven to bake for 15-20 until flaky with a fork. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of your fillets.
- While the salmon is cooking, chop romaine and set aside.
- Make the dressing. Place all of the ingredients except the sea salt and olive oil in a food processor and blend until everything is combined. While the food processor is still running, stream in olive oil until smooth and creamy. Once creamy taste and season with sea salt as desired.
- Pour 1/2 of dressing over romaine and toss to coat. Set aside. You will have leftover dressing. Use it for dipping veggies in as a snack or adding an extra drizzle on top of your salad bowls.
- Once salmon is done, remove from oven and make bowls. Fill up bowls with romaine and top with salmon. Add an extra drizzle of dressing if you'd like. Enjoy!
Fantastic recipe and easily adaptable to what you have in your fridge! The salmon was fantastic, needed a bit more salt for me. The dressing was the star!! I am looking forward to leftovers for lunch this week, and I do not enjoy leftovers.
