Salmon with cherry tomato salsa and asparagus

 
Today is day 6 on whole30. Every day it gets easier. The hard part is when I want to snack on some sweet potato chips and realize that if I really want them,I have to make them. Popping open that bag in the afternoon had become too easy. That's part of the reason I am doing whole30....SELF CONTROL with things like those chips and dark chocolate is something I need to learn. Today I had eggs for breakfast, some cantaloupe mid morning, a salad with chicken for lunch, an apple, some trail mix, and some coconut butter for snack. I had gotten some salmon at whole foods this weekend, so I wanted to cook it. I always cook my salmon the same way, so I tried a little something different. I got this recipe from paleo diet lifestyle. For the salmon you will need: 4 wild salmon filets ( skin on ) 2 cloves garlic 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp black pepper 1 tsp of lemon zest 1 tsp fresh lemon juice 1 tblsp olive oil 1 tblsp coconut oil ( recipe did not call for this, I added it) Set oven to broil. Line baking sheet with foil In a small bowl combine garlic, salt, pepper, lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil. Place fish on baking sheet and cover with coconut oil, then pour marinate on it. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until pale pink and flaky For the asparagus. Place on baking sheet, toss in olive oil, salt and pepper and broil for 10-15 minutes. I just cooked them at the same time as my salmon. For the cherry tomato salsa: 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes 2 cloves garlic 1/2 tsp lemon zest 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice 2 tblsp olive oil 1/4 tsp salt Cracked black pepper Mix all ingredients in a bowl and toss cherry tomatoes with them. Now serve on top of fish 20120805-195757.jpg
