Remember…it’s not gonna happen overnight…one day at a time!
Shakshuka with Tahini 🤤 . Morning! Ronny here from @primal_gourmet! There’s no way I could come on here & not share a Sakshuka recipe. Many cultures have their own version of this dish & rather than argue whose is the ‘original’ I prefer to embrace the differences. For me, two flavor bombs make this extra tasty: smoked paprika & harissa (spicy chili paste). Good news: many harissa pastes are #Whole30 compliant (read labels). Bad news: it might be hard to find where you live. If unavailable, try using fresh spicy peppers of choice (jalapeño, serrano, fresno, etc) #primalgourmet #whole30recipes . Video recipe on my YouTube channel https://youtu.be/Iy3mUtlvw84 (link in profile) . Ingredients (serves 2): 3 tbsp EVOO 4 Eggs 2-3 med tomatoes – roughly chopped (or 500ml tomato puree) 1/2 med onion – diced 4-5 cloves garlic – roughly chopped 2 tsp smoked Spanish paprika 1 ¼ tsp Whole30 compliant harissa (or fresh spicy pepper of choice) 1 handful olives – pitted & roughly chopped – for garnish salt & pepper to taste . for tahini 2 tbsp pure sesame seed paste 1 clove garlic – finely grated 2 tbsp lemon juice approx. ¼ cup water pinch of fine sea salt . Method: 1. In a bowl, whisk together sesame seed paste, garlic, & lemon juice. The mixture will become ‘clumpy.’ Keep whisking and slowly add one Tbsp. water at a time until tahini loosens & can loosely coat the back of a spoon. Season with pinch of fine sea salt – set aside. 2. Heat a heavy-bottomed pan over med heat. Add EVOO, onions & garlic. Season with pinch of salt & sauté 10-15 min until soft. 3. Season onion mixture with smoked paprika & sauté 60 sec – stir constantly to prevent burning. 4. Add tomatoes & season with pinch of salt & pepper. Stir, lower heat to med-low & cover with lid. Cook 10-15 min. Stir in harissa. Note: If tomato mixture dries out during cooking, add 1-2 tbsp fresh water. 5. Use a spatula to create a small ‘well’ in the sauce & add the egg into the ‘well’ so that the eggs cook in the sauce rather than over top of it. 6. Cover with lid & cook until whites have hardened but yolks are runny – approx. 6-8 minutes. For firmer yolks cook a little bit longer. Plate and garnish with tahini and olives.

Greek-Marinated Salmon with Asparagus . Hey guys, its Ronny from @primal_gourmet! 👋 When I’m in a pinch or find myself wondering what to do with a piece of meat, fish or chicken that needs to be marinated, I almost always reach for this Greek-inspired situation. It’s easy, quick and delicious! 😋 Which is very important if you’re on Day 17 of #januarywhole30 and starting to get hangry 😬 . 💥Note: Don’t have a grill pan? Use a grill. Don’t have one of those? Use a cast-iron or non-stick skillet. Still out of luck? Phone a friend! 🤷♂️#primalgourmet #Whole30 #whole30recipes . Ingredients (serves 2ish): 1lbs wild salmon filet – preferably skin on 1/2 lbs asparagus – stems removed ½ pint cherry tomatoes 1 tsp dried thyme 1 tsp dried mint 1 tsp dried basil 2-3 garlic cloves – finely chopped salt and pepper 1 tbsp lemon juice 1/4 cup EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) – plus 1-2 tsp for cooking fresh dill or parsley – for garnish . Method: 1. Add thyme, mint, basil, EVOO, lemon juice, and garlic to a bowl and stir to combine – set aside 2. Rinse and pat salmon dry with paper towel. Slice filet into 2″ wide portions. Season both sides of the filets with salt and pepper and transfer to a zip-top bag. Pour in the marinade and gently massage the salmon to coat. Lay the salmon flat in the bag, fold over the top half, squeeze out all of the air and seal. Transfer to fridge and let marinade 30min to one hour 3. When ready to cook, preheat grill-pan or grill over medium-high heat. If necessary, add 1-2tsp EVOO to the hot pan to prevent sticking. Season asparagus with a pinch of salt and pepper. 4. On one side of the pan, lay salmon skin-side down first. Add asparagus and tomatoes on the other side of the pan. Cook salmon approx. 3-4 minutes per side for medium center, or longer for well-done. Veggies should take the same amount of time – flip once or twice to avoid burning. 5. Transfer salmon and veggies to serving platter. Garnish with fresh dill and serve with roast potatoes or in a Greek salad (swipe 👉 to see example) . http://cookprimalgourmet.com/greek-marinated-salmon
