INGREDIENTS
For the Salmon
4 salmon fillets (4-6 oz. each)
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning or to taste
For The Spinach Stuffing
3 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
3 oz. fresh baby spinach

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Make the spinach stuffing. Place the cream cheese, feta, and mozzarella into a medium mixing bowl. Roughly chop the baby spinach and add it to the cheese. Massage the spinach and cheese with your hands, until well combined (it should look like thick paste).
  • Prep the salmon. Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket in the center of each salmon fillet.
  • Season the salmon. Generously season the salmon fillets with the Cajun seasoning and brush them with olive oil on both sides.
  • Stuff the salmon. Divide the spinach stuffing into four equal parts and spoon it into the salmon pockets.
  • Bake the salmon. Bake the stuffed fillets in a preheated oven at 400ºF for 15-20 minutes, depending on how large your fillets are.

1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon ghee
For the creamy sauce:

1 tablespoon ghee
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 yellow onion, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 14-ounce can quartered artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

  • Season the chicken breast on both sides with basil, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. Heat oil over medium heat in skillet. Sauté chicken breast on each side for 6-8 minutes. Transfer cooked chicken breast to a plate.
  • Wash skillet out to remove brown bits. In the same skillet, over medium heat, melt ghee. Add garlic and onions, and sauté over medium heat for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the chicken broth, coconut milk, lemon juice, arrowroot, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Whisk together. Simmer for 2-3 minutes or until sauce thickens. Reduce heat to low.
