Nutritious dinners don’t have to take all day and night to prepare. This pan seared salmon dinner is a once a week go-to not only because it is delicious, but it only takes around 30 minutes from fridge to table. Salmon is high in protein, Omega-3s, and B Vitamins. If you are needing some extra carbs, try it with some coconut rice.

2 pounds fresh salmon

1-2 TBS coconut oil to coat the pan


Dill Butter:

4 TBS Grass Fed Butter (melted)

1 TBS Fresh Dill

1 tsp lemon juice


2 bunches broccolini

Drizzle of Olive oil

Salt to taste

Sprinkle of garlic powder



  1. Heat coconut oil in a pan on medium heat and salt both sides of the salmon, keeping the skin on. 
  2. Once the oil is melted, add in the salmon and cook approximately 5-6 minutes per side depending on the thickness and desired doneness of the salmon.
  3. While the salmon is cooking, melt the butter in the microwave. Approximately 30-60 seconds. Once melted, add in finely chopped dill and the juice of half a lemon.
  4. Serve the salmon hot with the melted dill butter brushed on top.

For the broccolini:

  1. Boil a pot of water.
  2. Remove the leaves from the stems of the broccolini and trim the ends. Cut the broccolini lengthwise if they are really thick.
  3. Once the water is boiling, add in the broccolini and cook for approximately 5 minutes. The broccolini should be bright green.
  4. Strain the broccolini and put it into an ice bath. This will keep the broccolini’s bright green color.
  5. Heat up a drizzle of olive oil in a sautee pan. Add in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add in the broccolini and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until it is heated through but still remains crisp.
  6. Serve with salmon and dill butter with a nice squeeze of a lemon over everything!
