Cod alla Diavola 😈 . Hey gang, Ronny here from @primal_gourmet! This is a brand-spanking-new recipe that I’ve been absolutely obsessed with lately! It’s not even on my blog cookprimalgourmet.com yet! It’s crazy delicious, nice 'n spicy and couldn’t be easier to make… especially if you’re working with an awesome sauté pan like this one from @theoriginalgreenpan! . I’ve had the pleasure of cooking with their new Revolution line of cookware for the past few weeks and love it so much that I’ve teamed up with @williamssonoma and @theoriginalgreenpan to give away 3 (three) 10-pc sets over on my personal account @primal_gourmet! Head over to @primal_gourmet right now for full details! . Maybe tomorrow I’ll demo this Cod alla Diavola on the stories here? Whaddaya say??? 🤔 #primalgourmet #whole30 #whole30recipes . Ingredients: 2 x 4oz wild cod filets 1 cup tomato passata (aka puréed/strained tomatoes) 3 cloves garlic – smashed, left whole 1 tsp capers 1 tsp Italian chili oil (preferably packed in EVOO) 1.2 tsp smoked paprika 1 tsp golden raisins 1 tbsp pine nuts – preferably toasted salt and pepper 2 tbsp EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) – plus extra for fish 1/4 cup water . Method: 1. Preheat oven to 400F. Rinse cod filets under cold water. Pat dry with paper towel & set aside. 2.

Add tomato purée and cook 6-8min or until sauce is reduced by 1/4 – stir regularly to avoid burning 5. Add capers, chili oil, raisins, half the pine nuts and water. Stir to incorporate, taste for seasoning & adjust salt & pepper as needed 6. Nestle the cod filets in the sauce. Brush tops of each filet with EVOO & season with pinch of cracked pepper 7.

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


Whole-Roasted Spiced Cauliflower . Good Morning! Ronny here from @primal_gourmet! This recipe has a bit of a backstory. It was inspired by an IG story by @jamieoliver 👑, which I think was inspired by a brilliant photo taken by @davidloftus, while he was at @miznonparis, of a recipe that was originally created by @eyaltomato, some time ago. I had the pleasure of eating an original Miznon cauliflower while on honeymoon in Vienna this summer. It was way better than mine, but this one isn’t too shabby either! ☺️Step-by-step pics on http://cookprimalgourmet.com/whole-roasted-cauliflower (link in profile) #primalgourmet #whole30 #whole30recipes #vegan 😱 . Ingredients: 1 head cauliflower – leaves intact 1 tsp coriander seed ½ tsp cumin seed 1 tsp smoked paprika 2 garlic cloves 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves Salt & Pepper ¼ cup EVOO for toppings: 1 tsp harissa paste 2 tbsp EVOO ¼ cup Basic Tahini – recipe on my blog 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley ¼ cup pine nuts – toasted . Method: 1. Using a paring knife, trim the stem of the cauliflower so that it rests flat without toppling over. Be sure to keep the green leaves intact for presentation. 2. In a stock pot with steamer insert, steam cauliflower for 25 minutes or until you can easily pierce the center with a knife. 3. Meanwhile, in a dry skillet over low heat, toast the coriander & cumin seeds (approx. 6-8 min or until spices are warm & fragrant). Transfer toasted spices to a mortar & pestle, or food processor, along with paprika, thyme, & garlic. Bash everything to a paste. Add EVOO & stir to combine. Set aside. 4. In a small bowl, combine 1 tsp harissa with two tbsp EVOO. Set aside. 5. Preheat oven to 450F. 6. Transfer steamed cauliflower to oven-safe skillet or roasting tray. Massage spice paste all over cauliflower florets. Season with salt & pepper. Roast cauliflower 20-25 min or until golden brown & crispy. For even crispier edges, switch the oven to the broil setting for a minute or two just before removing from oven. 7. Remove roasted cauli from oven & transfer to serving platter. Drizzle with tahini and harissa oil. Garnish with toasted pine nuts & chopped parsley

I don’t care if they’re sandwiched between a (lettuce) bun, served over greens, or topped with a fried egg!!

Garlic & Thyme Roast Fingerlings . Hey guys, me again - Ronny from @Primal_Gourmet 👋WARNING, these roasted fingerling potatoes are Highly Addictive! That might be why they’re the 2nd most popular recipe on my blog. Have you made them yet? They’re crispy on the outside, but soft and chewy in the middle. Even better when dipped in some garlicky Whole30 compliant aioli! 🤤Oh, and they might just be the easiest thing you’ll make all week! . Tips: 1) Don’t even bother peeling the garlic cloves. The skin will prevent them from burning and they’ll get nice and sweet. 2) line the baking sheet with parchment paper. It will prevent the potatoes from sticking and I feel like they always get crispier that way! Or, maybe, I’m just losing my mind 🤪 #primalgourmet #Whole30 #whole30recipes . Ingredients: 1.5lbs fingerling potatoes – cut in half lengthwise 6 cloves garlic – unpeeled 1 tbsp fresh thyme pinch of kosher salt 2 tbsp avocado oil 1 tbsp fresh chives – finely chopped (for garnish) for aioli: 1/2 cup Whole30-compliant mayo – homemade or store-bought 1 clove garlic – grated or ground to paste 2 tbsp fresh parsley – finely chopped 2 tbsp lemon juice . Method: 1. In a small bowl or mason jar, combine compliant mayo, garlic, parsley and lemon juice. 2. Cover and refrigerate at least 30-45 minutes before serving. 3. Preheat oven to 400F. Rinse and cut fingerling potatoes in half – lengthwise. Add potatoes to large mixing bowl along with the rest of the unpeeled garlic cloves and toss with 2 tbsp avocado oil, fresh thyme and a generous pinch of kosher salt. 4. Arrange potatoes cut-side down onto a rimmed sheet-pan lined with parchment paper. Roast for 45 minutes – flip halfway. 5. Garnish the roasted Garlic and Thyme Fingerling Potatoes with finely chopped chives and serve with the Garlic Aioli . http://cookprimalgourmet.com/garlic-thyme-potatoes


Whole30 Greek Burgers . Hey guys, Ronny from @primal_gourmet here! 🙋🏻‍♂️Up until 15 min ago I had no idea what the most popular recipe on my blog was. Turns out it's these burgers. Who woulda thunk it? 🤷🏻‍♂️I know, I know! Just about everyone and their grandmother has a Greek burger recipe. What makes this one special is the toasted pine nuts and green bell pepper. The pepper lends a bit of sweetness and juiciness to the meat. And the pine nuts add an unexpected crunch. If you're allergic to nuts, obviously omit the pine nuts. If not, I strongly recommend you give them a try. You'll love the texture and slightly nutty flavour (full recipe link in bio) #primalgourmet #Whole30 #whole30recipes . Ingredients (makes 8 burgers): 2 lbs ground lamb (or, sub beef, chicken or turkey) 1/2 cup fresh parsley - finely chopped 1/2 cup red onion - finely diced 2 cloves garlic - minced 1/2 green bell pepper - finely diced 1 tsp dry mint 1 tsp dry oregano 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts salt and pepper avocado oil - to drizzle overtop of each burger toppings: whole30-compliant mayo or aioli (see saved stories in @primal_gourmet bio for basic mayo) sliced tomato diced red onion whole30 compliant pickles pitted kalamata olives . Method: 1. Add everything except for the avocado oil, salt and pepper to a large bowl and mix well. Tip: use your hands - it's easier. 2. Divide the mixture into 8 equal parts - approximately 1/4lbs each. Form into patties, drizzle both sides with a bit of avocado oil and season with salt and pepper. 3. Preheat grill or grill pan to med-high heat. Grill burgers approximately 5-6 minutes per side or until cooked to your preference. 4. Transfer burgers to a serving platter and cover with foil to keep warm. 5. Cut iceberg lettuce into wedges and prepare toppings. Arrange each burger individually or serve everything as a buffet so that family/friends can build their own burgers. . http://cookprimalgourmet.com/whole-30-greek-burgers

Hey guys! I’m Ronny, the one-man-circus behind @Primal_Gourmet. Actually, my wife, Catalina, is the CEO (Chief Eating Officer)! I’m pumped to be taking over @whole30recipes this week! I’m actually on day 15 of my #januarywhole30. Anyone else with me? . Fact: I love to cook and I live to eat. If you judged me by my waist line a few years back, you’d say I was living life to the fullest! Yup, that’s me up there – x2. I’ve struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I tried every diet, failed each of them twice and always ended up heavier than when I started. At one point, I even tried the seefood diet. I would see food and eat it! That didn’t work either 🙃 . In 2013, after a lifetime of struggling with obesity, body image and low self-esteem, I finally realized that the food I loved didn’t love me back. So, I decided to find someone new! I began a journey that led me to develop a healthier relationship with food, lose over 40lbs, and keep it off for over 5 years. Somehow, I ended up being that dude that says, “If I can do it, so can you!” You can read more about my story on my blog where I start at the beginning (link in profile) . Since launching @primal_gourmet, my goal has been to share delicious recipes that heal, not harm! I have a firm mantra that I live by: “It’s not a diet if it’s delicious.” I want to shatter the idea that healthy food is boring or restrictive. Most people tend to focus on what they can’t eat on a round of Whole30. They rarely stop to think about EVERYTHING they CAN! Turn to pg. 79 of Whole30 Fast & Easy to see what I mean #shamelessplug 🤷‍♂️ . I’m very grateful to @melissa_hartwig & the amazing team @whole30 for having me here this week. Thank you! 🙏 I’ll be sharing some crowd favourites, a few brand-new recipes that I think you’ll love, & maybe a giveaway or two on @primal_gourmet… because I love to give as much as I love to receive (please don’t take that out of context) 😳 #primalgourmet #whole30 #whole30recipes #motivationmonday . http://cookprimalgourmet.com/my-paleo-story

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon # Hi everyone! It’s Michelle Tam of @nomnompaleo here to share an easy and tasty veggie side dish. It wasn’t until adulthood that I discovered that the mild, nutty bitterness of these bulbous sprouts blends beautifully with smoky pork. You don’t have to spend much time in the kitchen to produce a flavorful side dish that punches you in the face with flavor.! # Serves 4 people # Ingredients: 1½ pounds Brussels sprouts 2 tablespoons melted ghee or coconut oil Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 4 bacon slices, diced (sugar free bacon!) Aged balsamic vinegar # Method: 1) Preheat your oven to 400°F. Trim the ends and any old outer leaves from the Brussels sprouts. 2) Cut the sprouts in half and toss them with melted ghee, salt, and pepper. 3) Dump them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, making sure to keep everything in one layer. Sprinkle the diced bacon over everything and pop the tray in the oven. 4) The sprouts take about 25 to 35 minutes to roast, so set your timer for 10 minute intervals to regularly rotate and flip the sprouts ’n swine. 5) Check for seasoning and drizzle some aged balsamic vinegar on the finished dish. # Bonus: The same technique for roasting these Brussels sprouts also works with cauliflower and broccoli! # For step-by-step pics, click on the link in the profile! # For step-by-step recipes to inspire, delight, and sustain you through your #JanuaryWhole30, find me at Nom Nom Paleo (where I’m posting a Whole30 recipe EVERY single day in January!) and follow @nomnompaleo on all social media.
