One Pot Salmon with Greens

Pots. Simultaneously the joy and bane of my existence.

We need pots to cook food. But do you know what the worst part of a pot is? It must be cleaned!

In this recipe, I will teach you how to use ONE DOGGONE POT to make a delicious meal. And, there’s an added bonus: this meal is LOW CARB! Low carb and cooked in one pot? Sign me up!

Annnnd…it’s also GLUTEN FREE. Wait, is this some kind of sorcery? No, it’s just salmon and vegetables cooked in butter to make you feel better on the inside.

I was really impressed with how delicious and simple this recipe turned out. This recipe makes an entire meal for one and can easily be doubled if you have more folks to feed. Also, be adventurous! You can add other vegetables instead of the greens and mushrooms. Use what you have on hand.
