  • 2 fillets salmon
    skin and bones removed
  • 1 teaspoon herbs de Provence
  • 1.5 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoon shallots
    peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoon blood orange juice (can exchange for mandarin or regular oranges)
  • salt and pepper
    to taste
  • 1 teaspoon butter (optional or can use dairy free margarine)


  • Preheat your oven to 190 celsius (375 F) if you plan on cooking inside. If you plan on grilling, preheat the grill. You can also cook your salmon just on top of the stovetop, it just depends on your situation and the weather conditions.
  • Sprinkle herbs de Provence generously on both sides of the salmon.
  • Spray a little cooking oil of the bottom of the oven proof pan and lightly and quickly pan sear fish on both sides. Transfer fish to the oven and cook for about 10-12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. (Alternatively you can cook on the grill in a fish rack but make sure your spray your fish rack with a little oil to prevent sticking ad grill over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Or you can steam the fish on the grill by just wrapping in aluminum foil. You can also cook fish on top of stove or campfire for about 10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork)
  • Make your sauce while your fish is cooking. In a small sauce pan add your coconut oil and fry shallots until softened and translucent but are not caramelized. Add a dollop of butter or margarine if you wish. Remove sauce pan from burner and add the lemon juice, blood orange juice and season to taste.
  • Remove the salmon from the oven and pour the delicious citrus glaze over the top. Garnish with fresh lemons and blood oranges and serve while hot. Enjoy.


Alternatively if the weather permits, you can cook your fish on the grill or in aluminum foil fish packets on the grill or oven.
