Blackened Salmon and Cauliflower Grits

Meal Type: Entree
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Yields: 2


For Salmon:

12 oz (divided into 2 - 6 oz portions) Oshen Salmon, with skin
1 tbsp Coconut Butter
½ tbsp Paprika
½ tsp Brown “Sugar” Substitute
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp oregano
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ tsp thyme
salt and pepper, to taste
Parsley, as garnish

For Cauliflower Grits:

2 cups Cauliflower, steamed and chopped
1 tbsp Coconut Butter
2 tbsp Coconut Cream
2 tbsp nutritional yeast, optional
3 tbsp water
1 tsp Xanthan Gum
½ Jalapeno Pepper, diced
Salt, to taste


1. In a small bowl, combine the paprika, brown “sugar” substitute, onion and garlic powders,
oregano, cayenne pepper, thyme, salt and pepper and mix together until evenly distributed.
2. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture over the salmon fillets, and rub until the fillets are completely
3. Heat a cast iron pan over medium heat and add the coconut butter to the pan, swirling it around
to coat the pan with the butter.
4. Place the salmon fillets flesh or skin side down and cook for about 5 minutes, flip and cook for
another 5 minutes. If you like your salmon cooked more, increase this cooking time.
5. While the salmon cooks, steam the cauliflower either in the microwave or on the stove. If using
the microwave, simply add the cauliflower to a glass bowl with a little water and microwave on
high for about 5 minutes. If using the stove, let about 1 cup of water come to a boil, add the
cauliflower and let it steam for about 5 – 8 minutes.
6. When the cauliflower is done steaming, add it to a blender along with the coconut butter,
coconut cream, nutritional yeast (if using), water, xanthan gum, jalapeno pepper and salt.
7. Pulse everything in the blender together until smooth.
8. To serve the blackened salmon and cauliflower grits, simply plate together and enjoy!
