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.
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.
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.
This is the AIP (autoimmunne-friendly) version of the regular breaded fish recipe (posted here). This recipe is nut-free, dairy-free, and egg-free, but it still tastes great. I used cod here, but you can use other types of fish instead.
Enjoy with the garlic ghee sauce – it’s tasty, really easy to make, and highly nutritious! This is a great way to get more fish into your diet.
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.
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.

A reader emailed me a few months ago asking for a Paleo tuna casserole recipe, and I realized that I had zero idea what that was, having not grown up in the US!
For those of you that also never had tuna casserole before, Wikipedia describes it as “a casserole mainly composed of egg noodles (or some other starch such as rice) and canned tuna fish, with canned peas and corn sometimes added,” and topped with something crunchy like potato chips.
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.
