Garlic Oregano Olive Tapenade Recipe [Paleo, AIP, Keto]

Louise Hendon | August 29

I was looking for an easy sauce to mix with my paleo pasta (I used shredded zucchini), and this easy but flavorful olive tapenade recipe came to mind.

It’s super quick to make and involves no-cooking from start to finish. And for the protein, I used some nutritious canned sardines packed in olive oil, but you can also top your pasta with some pan-fried chicken or pan-fried fish.

This easy olive tapenade recipe is also great no matter which diet you’re on – it’s Paleo, AIP-friendly, and suitable for a low-carb/high fat or ketogenic diet.

Lemon Black Pepper Tuna Salad Recipe [Keto, Paleo, AIP]

Louise Hendon | August 15

We love getting more seafood into our diet, and adding in tuna is a super easy way since it’s so readily available in cans. This tuna salad recipe is Paleo and Ketogenic (as well as low carb). It’s also AIP-friendly (follow the instructions in the recipe for AIP substitutions).  (AIP stands for Paleo autoimmune protocol.)

This recipe is super easy to make – it takes under 10 minutes from start to eat. So, it’s great for lunch or dinner or as a quick snack.

5-Minute Sardines Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | August 8

We’ve been going a bit crazy for canned sardines lately. We’re in Lisbon, a city that has been called “city of sardines”, and there are tons of amazing sardines.

sardines in lisbon - a paleo food

Our favorite is this brand called Pinhais – in fact you can see several cans of them on our table there!  They’re the most expensive sardines I’ve seen here (over $5 per can for their special limited edition one), but they are definitely worth it!  Their sardines are more tender than the others I’ve tried here (and I’ve tried quite a few already).  Unfortunately, it’s tough to get any of these brands in the US, so I guess it’s a good reason to visit Portugal. However, in the US, you can get quite a few good ones on Amazon – like this Wild Planet Wild Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

If you’re interested in finding out more about the health benefits of sardines, then check out these 2 articles (here and here).

And if you’re worried about mercury levels in fish (then rest assured that sardines are low in mercury and high in omega-3s).

Mustard Sardines Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | July 25

Continuing with our obsession with canned sardines, this recipe is another super easy and quick way to eat sardines! Treat it as an alternative to a tuna salad – you can pack these for lunch or spread them on top of some 5-minute Paleo bread for a quick sandwich or on top of some cucumber slices for a party snack.

If you’re unfamiliar with canned sardines, they’re cheap, easy to eat, and highly nutritious. Just remember to use sardines that are packed in olive oil (and not vegetable or seed oils), like these Wild Planet sardines.

For another easy and quick sardines salad recipe – check out this one.

Carrot, Mango, Mussels Hash Recipe [Paleo, AIP]

Louise Hendon | June 13

We all know that seafood is super healthy for us, but it’s often hard to get more of it into our diets.

Unless you’re used to cooking and eating fish and shellfish, they can seem very foreign and weird. Their texture is odd and their taste is even odder.

But, please give seafood a chance. Try making them once than just once and try different Paleo seafood recipes. It’s crazy just how nutritious and delicious they are!

And if you’re on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP), then it’s even more important for you to get more nutrient-dense foods like seafood into your diet.

So, this recipe is both Paleo and AIP, and it’s full of great seafood. If you have trouble finding mussels (look for them canned or frozen as well as fresh), then use shrimp, cockles, or crab meat instead. Then, to make this dish even more nutritious without any effort, we recommend adding some canned sardines on top.

Ginger Scallion Chinese Steamed Whole Fish [AIP, Paleo]

Louise Hendon | November 2

There’s a Chinese CSA type program in the Bay Area, and we’ve been able to pick up super fresh whole fish to steam!

Make sure to throw away the sauce the fish is steamed in and serve with fresh sauce and newly sautéed ginger and scallions.

You can also make this recipe AIP easily by omitting the peppercorns and chili peppers and using coconut aminos instead of tamari gluten-free soy sauce.

This recipe is a modified version of one that Jana, one of our readers, sent in. As soon as I saw her recipe, I knew it was going to be a winner, and I asked her if I could try making it with some modifications and then share the recipe with everyone.

She very generously agreed, so here it is! Thanks Jana!

(Even if you don’t eat much fish, give this recipe a try. It’s really really good especially with the garlic ghee!) And an AIP version of this recipe will be posted here soon.

Chinese Petrale Sole Recipe with Ginger and Garlic

Louise Hendon | March 11

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.
