– avocado oil – salmon – coconut aminos or soy sauce – rice vinegar – garlic – sesame oil – sea salt


In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the coconut aminos (or soy sauce), rice vinegar, garlic, and sesame oil. Set aside until ready to use.


Chop the salmon into cubes (if you prefer your salmon skinless, you can cut the skin off and discard it before chopping it. I leave the salmon skin on).


Carefully place salmon on the hot surface of the skillet and allow them to cook undisturbed for 2 to 4 minutes before flipping them to another side and cooking for an additional 2 to 4 minutes, until two sides are deeply golden brown.


Pour the sauce into the skillet and gently swish it around until all of the salmon is exposed to sauce. Cover the skillet and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes, stirring/flipping occasionally), or until the salmon has cooked through.


Taste the salmon for flavor and add more coconut aminos, rice vinegar, or a splash of fresh lime juice, and a sprinkle of sea salt to taste.
