Spicy Salmon with Heirloom Tomato Salsa

Just because you don’t eat Paleo doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try this recipe. That’s the great thing about Paleo recipes. Most are high quality, whole foods that are healthy for everyone. Just add something like whole grain or wild rice and you have a meal that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

Heirloom tomatoes are fairly new to me, but let me tell you, they’re a new favorite. Sweet. Savory. Delicious. If they aren’t in season, or if another type of tomato is on sale, they will work perfectly fine in the recipe. Also, if you can’t find wild caught salmon, don’t worry. We strive for the highest quality we can find and afford, but don’t stress if we need to substitute.
