If eating this way were difficult, I straight up wouldn't stick with it. It's because I've found how to make this lifestyle not only easy, but also FUN, that it's become completely sustainable! I rarely (if ever) make complicated dishes, and instead you'll find me making super simple meals, which are full of flavor, like this 10-Minute Salmon & Veggies!
If you're like me and often forget (or don't even think to) defrost your protein ahead of time, then be sure to check out this post, all about how to defrost your meat quickly. It's a lifesaver!

Enjoy this easy step-by-step guide for my 10-Minute Salmon & Veggies!
STEP 1: GATHER THE INGREDIENTS
Here I have a piece of wild caught salmon (I purchase the 2lb. bags from ButcherBox), a bunch of Broccolini, a ripe plantain (yellow/black plantains are sweeter, and green plantains are starchier/more like a potato), ghee, garlic powder, sea salt and black pepper.
STEP 2: PREP THE INGREDIENTS
I peeled the skin off of the plantain and sliced it, trimmed the ends of the Broccolini, rinsed and dried the salmon and seasoned it with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
STEP 3: HEAT THE SKILLET
STEP 4: ADD THE SALMON & BROCCOLINI
Once the skillet is very hot, I added the salmon and Broccolini to the pan. I then covered the skillet for 4-5 minutes, just until the top of the salmon was cooked through.
STEP 5: ADD THE PLANTAINS
I then added the plantains to the skillet. I cooked everything uncovered for 2-3 minutes, to crisp the skin of the salmon. I flipped the plantains once they started to brown.
STEP 6: FINISH THE PLANTAINS
I removed the salmon & Broccolini from the skillet and continued to cook the plantains until both sides were browned.
STEP 7: ALL DONE!
I plated everything and used my Chipotle Aioli on the salmon. This took less than 10 minutes from start to finish! I simply wipe my cast iron clean with some paper towels – that's it!
