Lemon Pepper Salmon + Broccoli

This week, I’m inviting you all over for a virtual dinner at the Farris house each evening!

Mason and I will be cooking up some delicious clean dinners and sharing the recipes with you. I’m no expert and I’m definitely not perfect, but real, simple, clean ingredients and cooking has become a passion of mine in the kitchen.

If clean eating is something you want to strive towards, I’m here to tell you it’s much easier than you may think…

Now, I know what you’re thinking, especially you, Mom, “what are those ingredients?! What’s arrowroot starch?! These ingredients are too expensive! They don’t have these ingredients at Country Mart! Who has time for that?!”

These thoughts I know some of you are thinking are what my friend Merriam-Webster defines as an excuse.

You can get ALL of these ingredients at Kroger, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Fresh Market, heck, I think Wal-Mart carries Ghee now! You can do it! As I share all my dinners with you this week, I would love to hear your thoughts, your recipes, and your clean eating favorites!

Let’s start cooking clean!

Lemon Pepper Salmon + Broccoli

Monday Night Dinner!


  • 10 oz center cut fresh salmon fillet (or 2 6 oz fillets, Mason and I just shared this filet tonight, whatever ya want as long as it’s fresh!)

  • Juice from 1 medium sized lemon

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of ghee

  • 1 tablespoon of freshly, coarsely, ground black pepper

  • 1/2 pound of broccoli

  • 1/2 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil

  • Dash of pink Himalayan sea salt and pepper

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of organic coconut aminos


For the Salmon:

  • Heat 1/2 tablespoon of ghee over medium heat in skillet

  • Combine 1 tablespoon of ghee and lemon juice and set aside

  • Sprinkle the coarsely ground black pepper on the flesh side of the salmon, then gently brush lemon juice/ghee mixture on the salmon

  • Place salmon in skillet skin side down and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes, covered

  • Gently flip the salmon, flesh side down for about 1 minute, just to add a little crispiness!

For the Broccoli:

  • Cut and wash broccoli

  • Heat 1/2 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil in skillet over medium-high heat

  • Season broccoli with just a dash of pink Himalayan sea salt and black pepper

  • Saute broccoli for about 7 minutes (we like ours a little burnt! Is that weird?!)

  • Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of coconut aminos to broccoli while it’s still cooking in the skillet and saute for about 1 minute

That’s it! Let me know if you try this, or have comments, suggestions, and other salmon recipes to share! Come back tomorrow night for another clean dinner!
