Whole30 Salmon with Hollandaise Sauce (Keto, Paleo)

  • Author: Natalie
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


(4) 6-ounce wild salmon filets (I get my salmon from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend!)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon salt + pepper

1 batch homemade hollandaise sauce


Preheat your cast iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes.

Pat the salmon completely dry. Season both sides with salt and pepper.

Add the olive oil to the warm skillet, and cook the salmon skin side DOWN for 5 minutes. The skin will release when it is crispy. Flip, and cook for another 1-2 minutes until the salmon has an internal temperature of 120ºF. Remove from the plate and rest it skin side UP so the skin stays crispy. Rest the salmon for 1-2 minutes.

Serve the salmon warm topped with hollandaise sauce.
