Paleo Recipe: Baked Apple Salmon

Editor Blog, Paleo Recipes 4 Comments

This is a very healthy recipe because salmon is high in omega 3 fatty acids which have been shown to help with brain functioning and is a great source of amino acids which are important for cellular growth and function. It’s low in sodium and very low in preservatives (depending on which brand of mustard you use). To make it a little more healthy I would suggest using wild salmon instead of farm raised. Wild salmon is also less fishy tasting but does cost more.

Baked Apple Salmon


  • 1 salmon filet
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • Dijon mustard
  • Black pepper
  • Herbes De Provence ( or substitute dried thyme and basil)
  • Apple Cider vinegar

On a large piece of foil place chopped apple aside.  Spread Dijon mustard on one side of salmon and turn face-down on apples.  Season with pepper and Herbes De Provence. Drizzle on a bit of apple cider vinegar.  Close up foil to make a packet and place in 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes.

    Artificial flavors are any synthesized chemical added to manufactured foods to change
    or make its taste better such as banana – isoamyl acetate; cinnamon – ethyl cinnamate; orange – octyl acetate
    and pineapple – methyl butyrate; pear. Diet
    is having an important role in development of both physical and mental health.
    To determine if a particular recipe or dish is indeed healthy,
    it is better to check the main ingredients.

    I tried this last night. It is SOOOOO tasty! Thank you for sharing! I tend to get stuck in ruts when it comes to salmon because pretty much any way you cook it, it tastes good.. So it’s nice to change it up with a recipe like this! The apples were to die for to. I pretty much diced them, instead of chopping them and they absolutely melted in my mouth. I paired it with baby broccoli, seared in the oven, and a few pieces of sourdough baguette, toasted in the oven. It was a really nice combination!
