MAPLE GLAZED SALMON
4 – 8 ounce salmon fillets
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons avocado oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut aminos
Thaw frozen salmon in cold water or rinse fresh salmon. Pat dry.
Sprinkle fleshy side with 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Drizzle 1 tablespoon avocado oil over the salmon and sprinkle the fleshy side with the spices. Place in refrigerator 30 to 60 minutes.
Heat up a large skillet over medium heat until hot. Drizzle with remaining avocado oil. Place salmon fleshy side down and cook 5 minutes until a nice caramel color begins to form.
Flip and cook 5 minutes on the skin side. In a small bowl, mix together the coconut aminos and the maple syrup. Right before salmon is finished cooking, pour the glaze over the salmon. Remove from skillet and serve.
