  • ½ cup (120 ml) avocado mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp (15 g) diced organic no-sugar-added dill pickles
  • 1 tsp capers, minced
  • Sea salt and black pepper

How to make Crispy Salmon And 5-Ingredient Tartar Sauce

  1. To make the tartar sauce, add the avocado mayo, yellow mustard, lemon juice, pickles and capers to a small bowl. Whisk all the ingredients together to combine. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the tartar sauce to the fridge until you’re ready to serve.
  2. Heat a 12-inch (30-cm) cast-iron skillet over high heat until the pan begins to smoke. Lower the heat to medium-high and melt 2 tablespoons (26 g) of ghee in the pan.
  3. Pat the salmon dry with clean paper towels and season with a couple pinches of salt and pepper. Transfer the fish to the hot pan flesh side down. Sear the fish for 5 minutes. Flip the fish. If you are having a hard time flipping the fish, let it sear for 2 minutes more then try again. Sear for 2 minutes on the other side. Remove the fish from the pan and set it aside.
  4. Add the remaining tablespoon (13 g) of ghee to the skillet and sauté the asparagus for about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the bone broth and continue to cook the asparagus for 2 to 3 minutes. Season with a couple pinches of salt and pepper to taste. Remove the asparagus from the heat and return the salmon to the pan. Serve with the tartar sauce and lemon wedges on the side.
PRO TIP: If you have a hard time finding pickles that do not contain any sugar, here are two brands I recommend: The Grillo’s Pickles brand, sold at Target, and the Thrive Market brand dill pickles.
