  • 2 oz boneless salmon fillets About 5 /fillet
  • 1 large zucchini or 2 smaller ones
  • 1 large loose carrot or 2 smaller ones
  • 1 small head broccoli break into smaller pieces
  • Coconut or avocado oil to pan fry

Lemon Balsamic Dressing:

  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves small garlic grated
  • 2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


  • Pat the fish dry as much as possible. Season w/ small pinch of salt & black pepper. Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil over high heat in a skillet. When hot, place skin side down then 1) turn the heat down to medium-low, and 2) use a spatula to gently press the fish.
  • Continue to gently press/push down the fish in the skillet periodically for about 4-5 mins for that ultimate crispy skin. When the fish becomes mostly opaque with the exception of the top portion. Carefully flip the fish over and only cook for an additional 30 seconds to 1 min max. Set aside.
  • Microwave broccoli flower for about 1 min, set aside to cool. Prepare zucchini and carrot noodles, using a spiralizer. Combine the fish, noodles, broccoli, and drizzle with Lemon Balsamic Dressing.
