Salmon with Tzatziki Sauce

Kids (and adults) of all ages will love this classic comfort food that is now grain-free thanks to Siete Foods Tortillas. Melty cheese, perfectly seasoned chicken, and browned onions combine to make a crave-worthy dish.

My family are not big on salmon and that’s ok, it just means more for me. It cooks so quickly I often make it for lunch when I have the house to myself. The recipe is high in fat and gives you a feeling of satiety for a long time afterwards. It also makes extra Tzatziki which is nice for a snack with some cut up veggies.

Salmon can be a bit expensive, especially organic wild salmon, so it is nice to purchase a whole fillet rather than just a steak, it’s more cost effective. Even if it is just yourself eating it. You can flake it up for a salad the next day, or make salmon cakes.

Place lemon slices on salmon, season with salt and pepper.

While salmon is cooking, mix the remaining ingredients together.

Taste and add more salt or lemon if desired.

We have enjoyed this soup both with and without the addition of the pork sausage, so it is both Whole30 and vegan friendly. This minestrone soup tastes even better than the endless soup from a certain chain restaurant, and you can make you own endless salad to go along with it.

My kids love these real-fruit, no-sugar gummies and I love that they're getting the benefits from gelatin and real fruit and not the nasty side-effects of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors.
