The coconut-crumbed salmon is fresh and fragrant, whilst the crust is golden and crispy. Pair your salmon with your choice of greens and you’re on to a winner. 

3. Paleo Fish Tacos

Next up, we have this gorgeous paleo fish tacos recipe. Let’s face it, tacos never disappoint. Even the fussiest of eaters can’t turn down a good fish taco, right?

Fish tacos usually come with unhealthy fish that’s been heavily deep-fried in batter and tacos loaded with calories.

Not this recipe though! No, this recipe instead comes with healthier coconut flour tacos and beautifully grilled cod that has been coated in coconut flakes. 

The end result is a stunning dish that is both light and packed with fresh flavors.

Proper heart-healthy food, these burgers are bursting with flavor.

The perfect party pleaser, it only takes 20 minutes to make the burgers so you really have no excuse. You simply have to give them a try.

5. Grilled Calamari Salad

Most people consider calamari to be a difficult ingredient to cook with. On top of that, it’s commonly served after being deep-fried.

Luckily for us, it doesn’t have to be either of those things. Instead, we can use it to make a stunning paleo-grilled calamari salad (see also ‘15 Awesome Paleo Salad Recipes For Paleo Lovers‘).

Taking just 15 minutes to make, this is a simple, yet flavorful dish that only calls for 13 basic pantry ingredients.

What we love most about this dish, aside from its simple elegance, is that it wonderfully combines sweet, salty, earthy, and spicy flavors to create a taste sensation.

6. Grilled Salmon

If you need a super simple recipe that can be made quickly after a long day at work, you should take a look at this grilled salmon recipe.

Simplifying the salmon grilling process, this recipe is the best recipe on this list when it comes to making a quick paleo fish meal.

The salmon will be ready in just 15 minutes and all you need to season the fish is salt, parsley, basil, and onions.

You can then serve your salmon with a simple salad or rice.

7. Air-Fryer Coconut Shrimp

Another fantastically simple paleo fish dish is this air-fryer coconut shrimp recipe. Thanks to the air fryer and coconut flakes, we can easily make a much healthier version of this fish snack (see also ‘15 Awesome Paleo Snack Recipes You’ll Love‘). 

Beautifully combining the delicate flavors of the shrimp with the tropical flavors of the coconut, this recipe can be used to make a batch of shrimp perfect for a family gathering or party. 

You’ll be impressed by just how crispy these shrimp can get. They’re much healthier for you than deep-fried shrimp too.

8. Whole30 Fish And Chips

The next recipe on our list shows you how to make a much healthier, paleo, and whole30-friendly British classic.

Of course, that dish is fish and chips. If we’re being honest, there’s not too much to say about this recipe.

It’s incredibly simple, yet extremely delicious. The cod tastes fresh and light, whilst the chips are crispy and golden on the outside and delightfully fluffy in the middle.

There’s just something special about this hearty recipe that will make the whole family smile so give it a try.

Perfect for a dinner or buffet, you’ll probably find yourself making double as your guests will certainly come back for more.

The addition of various herbs and spices helps the fish taste even better, but it is the inclusion of lime juice that really elevates the dish.

The lemon juice adds that extra zing that makes these fritters taste so good.

10. Salmon Cakes With Zucchini

Paleo, whole30, and keto-friendly, this next recipe shows you how to make a fresh batch of salmon fish cakes.

Whilst the salmon is the main focus of the dish, the zucchini is also well worth mentioning. 

The zucchini gives the cakes a subtle hint of sweetness that compliments the salmon perfectly.

This flavor is then enhanced by the addition of mustard, mayonnaise, and salt. This recipe should solve those food cravings you’ve been having.

11. Chili Glazed Salmon

We have to say, if you love sweet and spicy dishes, this next one will blow your socks off. Made from scratch in just 20 minutes, this gorgeous salmon dish is extremely well-flavored.

Offering both sweet and spicy vibes, you’ll struggle to find a salmon recipe that better flavors the fish.

We must say, the maple syrup does an excellent job of giving the dish a thicker, more satisfying texture.
