salmon filet-o-fish

Salmon provides a great source of vitamins, including vitamin B12 and vitamin D, as well as other key nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids. These nutrients pack a multitude of health benefits like heart disease prevention, anti-inflammatory properties, and some studies even support anti-aging properties. Lucky for us, Chef Geo of ProTreats put together this crispy and delicious phyllo dough-wrapped salmon recipe that tastes just as good as it is for you. It’s a salmon filet-o-fish!

Ingredients (makes 2 servings):

  • 200g of salmon
  • 8 sheets of phyllo dough
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/8 tsp Himalayan salt

  • 1/4 Tbsp garlic

Instructions:

  1. Season the salmon with salt and paprika, then in a medium/high heat pan, sear the salmon using 1 Tbsp of coconut oil on each side for 30-40 seconds until almost golden brown. Tip: Add the coconut oil before fish. Do not preheat the oil!
  2. Open up your sheets of phyllo dough and brush each one with coconut oil. Then, wrap the fish, onions, garlic, lemongrass paste and parsley in the phyllo dough like you would a burrito. Fold the ends inward and downward.
  3. Place the wrapped salmon on a baking tray and cook for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Cut in half, serve, and enjoy your salmon filet-o-fish!
