This recipe keeps it simple, without sacrificing flavor. Broiled salmon steaks are served over seared tomatoes and peppery arugula for a warm main course salad. The salad is dressed with invigorating Primal Kitchen Lemon-Turmeric Vinaigrette, adding bright citrus flavor and turmeric’s revitalizing health benefits.
There’s a reason this cut of salmon is a called “steak” and it’s not only the shape. Salmon steaks are thick and meaty and can be just as satisfying as a regular steak. The middle bone and surrounding skin keep the fish from drying out while cooking, ensuring that your salmon will be juicy and flavorful.Read More
A buttery, meaty sauce flavored by the crispy bits of meat left in the pan is one of life’s great pleasures. Pan sauce elevates a steak or pork chop from good to amazing and turns a simple homemade meal into a restaurant worthy dinner.

If you don’t already keep a few cans of high quality tuna packed in olive oil in your pantry, this recipe is a great reason to start. The meal comes together quickly, with dazzling results. Cherry tomatoes and garlic are seared in a generous amount of olive oil, then comes the tuna and even more olive oil to make a richly flavorful sauce.
The sauce can be tossed with your favorite zoodles (zucchini noodles) or other vegetable-based zoodle varieties, but noodles aren’t necessary to make this meal great. If you don’t want to deal with noodles, just grab a spoon and dig in. The tomatoes and tuna are delicious on their own.Read More

If you think kefir is only a refreshingly tart yogurt drink brimming with healthy probiotics, then you’re missing out on another reason it’s great to have kefir in the kitchen.
Kefir is a fantastic marinade for chicken. The acidic nature of kefir makes it the perfect tenderizer, especially for chicken breasts. Kefir also has a way of really soaking the flavors of a marinade into meat. This recipe uses lemon and dill, but any blend of herbs or spices can be whisked into a kefir marinade.
