Recipe Alert!!! 

Agave-Lime-Sriracha Salmon & THE BEST KALE SALAD EVER

For the Salmon –
• 1.5# salmon (skin on)
• Salt & Pepper (to taste)
• 2T butter
• 1/3C agave
• 1/3C Sriracha
• 2 limes (one sliced into thin rounds and one juiced)
• 1/4C soy sauce
• 2 cloves garlic (minced)
• 3T cilantro (minced)
For the Salad –
• 1 head kale (shredded fine – ribs removed)
• 1/2C almond flour
• 1/2C freshly grated parmesan cheese
• 2 cloves garlic
• 1t crushed red pepper flakes
• 3 lemons (juiced)
• 1/2C EVOO

1. Set your oven to 400F.
2. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay salmon on top, skin side down.
3. Season salmon with salt and pepper to taste and then place the lime slices evenly
across the flesh of the salmon.
4. Next – In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, melt butter, stir in honey,
Sriracha sauce, lime juice, soy sauce, and garlic. Bring to a boil, then reduct to
medium heat and cook for 3-4 minutes longer.
5. Pour 2⁄3 of the sauce over the salmon (reserve remaining sauce for later) and use a
spoon or spatula to make sure the sauce covers all of the salmon (you just don’t
want any “dry” spots). Fold the edges of the foil up around the salmon so the sauce
doesn’t spill out everywhere (the foil doesn’t need to completely cover the salmon).
6. Bake for 15 minutes, then switch to broil and cook another 4-5 minutes until the very
edges of the salmon begin to char slightly – watch carefully so the whole salmon
doesn’t burn.
7. While the salmon bakes, prep your salad (this can be done a few days ahead too!).
8. In a small bowl whisk together the garlic, lemon juice, crushed red pepper, and
EVOO well.
9. In a much larger bowl toss together the kale, almond flour and cheese.
10. Add dressing into the tossed dry salad and massage into the kale for at least one
minute. DONE!
11. Top salmon with reserved sauce and chopped cilantro and serve alongside the best
kale salad ever.
