Easy Broiled Salmon with Tomatoes {PALEO}

Sorry, loves, no Fitness Friday this week!  How about a new recipe?  Is that okay?  This one is easy to put together and requires only a few ingredients.  In fact the spices I used worked really well, but they are mere suggestions.  If you have every thing on hand, use it.  If not, don’t sweat it.  I mean, the basil would be great to have and the oregano, but the smoked paprika isn’t essential.  So there you have it, or should I say here you have it?  Easy Broiled Salmon with Tomatoes {PALEO}

Quick to cook and only a few ingredients, this easy salmon dish is sure to be your new favorite!!

Salmon Korokke {PALEO}

Okay, so, this isn’t a traditional Japanese Korokke.  In fact the flavors aren’t really all that Japanese at all, they are a little Thai and a little Indian and a little Asian…  I hope I’m not offending any one here, but that’s the best way I can think to describe it.  Mostly, it’s just really good.  Murr told me to blog it as we were eating…  So that’s what I’m doing, for your enjoyment (I hope): Salmon Korokke {PALEO}.
Yummy Asian salmon cakes that are Paleo and easy to make!

We ate these with these Crispy Sesame Brussels Sprouts with Creamy Curry Dipping Sauce.  I added a bit of fresh ginger to the dipping sauce and let the sauce serve double duty for both the Brussels sprouts and korokke.
