Baked salmon is one of the easiest recipes, and it’s so nutritious. This is a really easy and tasty combination of flavors. My mum thought it was the best salmon she’d tasted from me.
Whether it’s your go-to dip, a frequent side salad, or something that you only eat at your nearest Mexican cantina, guacamole can be considered a food of the gods – Aztec gods, to be exact! You can smash it, mash it, process it, or give it the old mortar and pestle treatment. Health benefits galore so there’s no reason to feel guilty when you can’t help but go back for more.
The following are recipes that we have collected so you can discover new twists and old classics. Here are the 30 best Paleo Guacamole recipes! (Also check out our Wholly Guacamole giveaway, running until this Saturday, October 25 at midnight!)
Spaghetti squash is a fantastic grain-free noodle that’s super easy to cook. I love sloshing some Paleo sloppy joes on top of spaghetti squash.
What is Spaghetti Squash
According to Wikipedia, “spaghetti squash (Cucurbita pepo var. fastigata) (also called vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, vegetable marrow, spaghetti marrow, and squaghetti) is an oblong seed-bearing variety of winter squash.”
There are seeds in the middle (which you can roast to eat as a nice Paleo snack) and the “meat” of the squash is hard when raw (like all other squash), but falls apart into spaghetti-like strands.
I’m loving these baby squash from Costco – they’re just so cute! But you can make this recipe with zucchini instead.
It’s such a simple recipe!
Here’s a fantastic easy Paleo snack/meal you can buy in stores (I’ve only seen these sold in supermarkets and specialty stores in the UK so far, but please leave a comment if you’ve seen these sold other places). These hot smoked salmon filets are ready-to-eat, very nutritious, and only contain 2 ingredients (salmon and salt).
Liver is a really nutritious Paleo food, and pate is a great way to get more liver into your diet – it’s flavorful and easy to make. It’s great for spreading onto some Paleo crackers (recipe also in Simone’s book!), or if you’re too lazy to make Paleo crackers (like me), you can just eat it straight! It’s also very filling.
I’m here in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, and salmon is one of the popular local foods here. While I struggled to find smoked salmon in the US, it’s really easy to get it in the throughout UK, and it’s delicious.
If you haven’t ever had smoked salmon before, it’s basically something you eat straight out of the packaging (no need to cook). It tastes like salmon but with a salty, smoky flavor, and its texture is that of raw fish (a bit drier than sashimi-grade). When you buy it, it’s often already sliced into thin slices (thinner than sashimi salmon).
As a child, I was initially terrified of eating smoked salmon (I was terrified of eating anything “raw”), and it took my quite a while before I started to enjoy smoked salmon. Now, I love it!
They posted one of their delicious recipes (Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread) from The Paleo Kitchen here a few months ago, and I know a lot of people emailed me because they loved the recipe. So, I went and tested one of their recipes for dinner last night. It was one of the really easy ones (because I’m currently limited to the stuff they sell in a Tesco Express – a tiny supermarket in Edinburgh).
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.
