We bought this Instant Pot from Amazon around 5 months ago, and it’s been put to some amazing uses – like making this super tender beef short ribs recipe.
Petrale sole is a delicious fish that’s pretty cheap (we bought 3 for around $15 at Costco).
There’s not much debate between the various diets that fish is super nutritious and healthy, and I happen to love all seafood, so we often cook fish in our house.
Petrale sole is a fish I’ve eaten at restaurants before, but I’ve never tried to cook it until now.
It was remarkably easy and tasty, and here’s how to cook it.
I really love chicken salad recipes, but my favorite are Paleo curried chicken salad recipes. Maybe I just have a soft spot for anything curry flavored.
Truth be told, I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for a really long time, but I kept putting it off because I didn’t want to the trouble of making Paleo mayo (it’s not that difficult, but it’s also not that easy).
So, when I heard about Primal Kitchen Mayo (ready-made Paleo mayo in a jar that’s created primarily with avocado oil – made by Primal Kitchen), I knew that the first recipe I was going to make would be this curried chicken salad! If you haven’t tried Primal Kitchen Mayo yet, it’s definitely a much easier way to go than creating mayo from scratch every time.
This is a dish that my parents made a lot during my childhood, and in Chinese, it’s known as Gong Bao Ji Ding (宫保鸡丁). It’s also a popular dish in America, and you’ll find it in a lot of Chinese restaurants as Kung Pao Chicken.
It’s quick to make and can be pretty spicy! So, check out this recipe and bring some authentic and healthy Chinese food into your diet.

I never knew broccoli beef was a Chinese dish until I had it in the US! But now, I love it, and it’s easy to make at home too.
I made this dish with leftover Korean shortrib (Galbi), which I found at Costco, but you can use any beef sliced thin and cooked.

I’m a big fan of Shabu Shabu – it’s basically boiling thin slices of meat in a pot of broth and then eating it with a sauce (often made from soy sauce, garlic, peppers). There are variations on shabu shabu as well – in Chinese cuisine, this is often called hot pot. And in French cuisine, fondue is a version of this.
A ton of restaurants serve this type of cuisine, and they’re pretty paleo! I often go to shabu shabu and ask for no broth (because I can’t be sure what they put into the broth most times) with thin slices of beef, lamb, and vegetables. If you’re worried about soy sauce, then take your own gluten free tamari sauce to the restaurant (that’s what I do!).
So, this recipe is all about making a super quick shabu shabu beef dinner at home. Because the meat is thinly sliced, it cooks really fast!
I love visiting Asian supermarkets, because you get to see so many great fruits, vegetables, meats, and seafoods!
In Vancouver, there’s a ton of Asian supermarkets and a ton of seafood, so sashimi seemed like a great option to pick up at my local H-Mart. Since you don’t have to cook anything, this paleo sashimi salad with kale and mangos is super fast to make. It’s fantastic as an appetizer or a quick lunch.
I’ve been eating celtuce or asparagus lettuce (also called celery lettuce, stem lettuce, or Chinese stem lettuce) for a long time without knowing what it is! Its Chinese name is ?? (wo sun) or sometimes ?? (qing sun), which I had mistaken thought meant young bamboo.
But celtuce is not bamboo at all – it’s actually a type of lettuce where you eat the stem instead of the leaves.
I’ve been living for the past month mostly on this tropical island off the southern coast of China called Hainan. I know I’m super lucky!
It’s been a bit tougher doing Paleo out here because all the ingredients are different, and I don’t have hardly any cooking supplies! I just have 2 electric cookers (one is on the ground!) and a microwave.
Since I’m unable to cook many of my usual recipes, I’ve been experimenting some with the local produce and creating some new ones. This Ginger Apple Celtuce Paleo Stir Fry recipe is one of my favorite creations. It’s also paleo autoimmune friendly (omit the chili from the recipe – that was how I made this dish initially actually). If you don’t know what Celtuce is (also known as asparagus lettuce), then check out my post about it here (you can find it in many Chinese supermarkets around the world).

If you’ve ever been to a Chinese restaurant, then you’ve probably come across the term “family-style.” It’s ordering a bunch of different dishes and then sharing them during the meal (without dividing the dishes before the meal begins).
For example, here’s a meal Jeremy and I shared with my aunt at a restaurant in Haikou, Hainan, China last month (it featured roasted duck, a duck soup, a white potato dish, and a green beans stir fry):
So, if you’d like to put together your own family style Chinese dinner at home, then you might like these 2 Paleo Chinese menus.
