Coriander Salmon with Caper Broccolini

It’s been well over a month since I’ve posted any new recipes. The “new” year just hasn’t been kind to me even if I am able to keep my optimism up, well, at least somewhat.

I seem to have developed “panic attacks.” Have you ever had them? They are unnerving.

But, I digress and will talk more about that another time. Right now, let’s get a new recipe for you to try. You’ve been waiting so patiently.

My husband made this paleo Coriander Salmon with Caper Broccolini one day when I was feeling lazy although I had made it before yet never posted it. It’s quite good!


  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 bunches broccoli, sliced thinly (no point in paying extra for the broccolini when you can just slice regular broccoli up)
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 6-ounce salmon fillet
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • lemon wedges (optional)


  1. Combine the shallot, 1/2  teaspoon salt, and 1/2 cup water in a small bowl.
  2. Allow the shallot to soften for a few minutes, then drain it.
  3. Slice the broccoli into thin strips and steam it in water until it’s tender.
  4. Once the broccoli is cooked, toss the broccoli with the capers, shallot, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and a dash of pepper in a bowl.
  5. Season the salmon with the coriander, a dash of salt, and a dash of pepper (add more if you want it a little kick to it).
  6. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat then add the salmon and cook until it looks opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  7. Serve with the lemon slices if you wish.

That’s it! The salmon came out absolutely perfect.  Hope you enjoy it.
