7 Paleo Seafood Dishes

Paleo has come a long way in terms of creativity with chicken and beef in the kitchen. Luckily, this includes the likes of seafood as well! Paleo by name entices us to believe that only the most basic of “clean” meats can make it into your belly. However, people tend to forget that this doesn’t mean we must eat grass fed, free-range red meat for every meal (although, yes, it should any meat you eat should always be clean). There is plenty of room to get creative with seafood as well!

With the help of Bill and Hayley of Primal Palate and seven of their favorite seafood recipes, we will dive into some tasty treats that will mix up your meal plan. From salmon to cod and shrimp, Bill and Hayley encourage a healthy dose of fatty fish for any diet, Paleo or not. They show us how easy it is to sauté, bake, and steam our favorite fish and spice up any meal.


1. Paleo Salmon Cakes

Many people feel deterred from cooking with seafood because it can be hard to find good quality. That’s why (not overly processed canned seafood) is always a good backup option, and it eliminates a step from your prep. With your salmon on hand, simply combine all of the mentioned ingredients, shape to form cakes and bake for 15 minutes. Create small travel cakes or big ones for a full meal at home. Creativity for the win!


2. Adobo Salmon Salad With Avocado Salsa

This simple but flavor and nutrient-packed salmon dish will save you time and keep your taste buds entertained. This recipe is lightly flavored with Adobo seasoning and paired with an avocado salsa that gives it that fresh summer vibe. Not to mention, it checks all the paleo boxes.


3. Paleo Shrimp Tacos

This dish can be as simple or complex as you have time for! It will be packed with flavor either way. If you go with a natural frozen shrimp option, you’ll be done cooking within ten minutes. Simply add fresh toppings like romaine and avocado, and you have a quick meal that is still paleo and delicious!


4. Asian Salmon Bowls

Grab two forks, shred the filet, and add it to a bowl of cauliflower rice, celery, mushrooms, etc. and an Asian-style marinade. You can really cater to your taste with this one. Use any extra salmon for a healthy omega-3-packed addition to any salad.


5. Jerk Shrimp Tacos With Mango Pomegranate Salsa

Taking the more basic shrimp taco recipe to the next level with pomegranate seeds. It’s a tongue twister in a meal in the best way! The fresh, fruity burst from the pomegranate balances the spicy kick from the jerk seasoning. Plus the cassava flour tortillas are amazing and should be on every Paleo grocery list.


6. Pan-Seared Cod With Herbs and Lemon

There is a two-step process of cooking this cod masterpiece. By baking the cod fillets after sautéing them, you get that crispy brown coating that, we think it’s safe to say, everyone loves. Serve on lettuce of your choice or with a side veggie for a light but satisfying meal any day of the week.


7. Shrimp Curry With Cauliflower Rice

Oh yeah, it’s apparent by now that we can get awfully creative with shrimp. This curry recipe is sure to make your taste buds happy. Coconut milk and chicken broth add healthy fats and protein to this dish. You can even throw raw shrimp straight into the simmering curry sauce and cook them simultaneously. Plus this will make the shrimp amazingly flavorful.
