A favorite in our house for the yummy flavor and simplicity—who doesn’t love that combo? Weeknight dinners just got a tasty upgrade.


10 minutes


Serves: 4


4 thick, narrow filets of salmon
1 cup sesame seeds
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon fresh dill, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1 to 2 tablespoons LouAna® 100% Pure Coconut Oil


Rinse and pat dry the salmon. Set aside.

In a shallow bowl, mix together the sesame seeds, dill, salt and pepper.

In a skillet, heat the coconut oil to medium high.

Place the salmon filets, one at a time, in the sesame seed mixture and coat thoroughly on all sides.

Place on the heated pan, skin-side down and cook for about 4 minutes, or until golden brown underneath. Then flip and cook the top for 1 to 2 minutes until golden brown, then each side for about 1 minute.

Serve immediately with lemon wedges and fresh dill.
