Wild Baked Salmon With Asparagus & Fennel

Wild Baked Salmon With Asparagus & Fennel

Baked salmon recipe & content provided by Ryan Carter

This baked salmon recipe is simple to prepare and involves little prep work. The marinade’s coconut aminos have a umami flavor, similar to soy sauce, that suits fish very well. Kelp, another upgraded addition, provides more sea flavor and micronutrients such as iodine.

Wild salmon is by far a superior source compared to farmed salmon. Wild salmon contains brain-boosting essential fatty acids, an optimal omega-3 to -6 ratio, and a unique antioxidant and anti-inflammatory called astaxanthin. The ingredients truly speak for themselves in this dish, which is often the case when cooking honest food.

This baked salmon dish is great to share while entertaining friends or family. The vegetables are cooked underneath and soak up the juices, which also means fewer pans for you to clean.

Note on ingredients: All pepper is suspect on the Bulletproof Diet and highly susceptible to performance-robbing mold toxins. To reduce your risk, omit it or find a fresh, high-quality variety. Not everyone can tolerate fermented foods, such as coconut aminos. The process to make these foods can trigger an allergic response and release histamines that inflame you quickly. Use high-quality brands when you cook with fermented foods, or avoid them if they cause bloating, nausea, or allergy-like symptoms. Read more about fermented foods here.
