+ Well-grade Salmon
+ Brussels Sprouts
+ Assorted Cherry Tomatoes
+ Spice Rub (combination of onion powder, papricka, garlic, salt, & pepper)- feel free to use a combination of spices based on your taste preference
+ 1 lemon
+ Greens for salad
+ Persimmons(optional)
Serving Size // 1-2 People












1. Start by cutting brussels sprouts and cherry tomatoes in half. Add oil to a skillet and saute tomatoes and sprouts until soft.

2. Season salmon with spice rub (combination of onion powder, papricka, garlic, salt, and pepper). Spices can be adjusted according to your taste preference- i.e. less papricka if you want less “spice”. Meanwhile, turn on skillet to high heat and add olive oil to pan.

3. Add salmon to skillet, cooking pink side down. Add brussels sprouts to pan, also adding spice rub to veggies.

4. Add tomatoes to pan, allowing juices from tomatoes to mix with fish and sprouts.

5. Add juice of 2 lemon halves to pan, allowing acidity of lemon to absorb into fish.

6. While that’s cooking, assemble salad with ingredients of your choice. Chris is using mixed greens, persimmons, cherry tomatoes, and olive oil.

7. Once fish is done, assemble fish on plate with veggies and salad for a finished meal.

8. Enjoy!
