This is a super easy, primal (paleo friendly), high protein recipe combination that is high on flavor. Feel free to substitute the sweetener of your choice if raw honey doesn’t work for you. 

Roasted Cipollini Onions


Prep Time:15 min
Cook Time: 60 min
Level: Easy
Serves: 2-4 servings


Ingredients: Bag of 15-20 cipollini onions

Coconut oil
About 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp cup raw honey
1/2 bunch thyme, leaves removed (1/2 -1 tsp dried)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

*Cooks Tip: Allowing onions to sit in a bowl of hot water while you peel them makes it MUCH easier. Don’t make the water too hot, you don’t want to PRE-cook them.*

In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, honey, thyme, salt and pepper until combined. Put the onions in a large bowl, pour the dressing over them and toss well to coat.

Pour onions and marinade into small baking dish and place into the preheated oven and roast for 45 to 60 minutes until the onions are soft and slightly caramelized.

 

You can use the marinade to top off some side veggies or as a base to pan sear some yummy swordfish like I did.

Pan Seared Swordfish

Rinse and pat dry swordfish steaks. Season with sea salt and pepper and set aside.
In a skillet on medium heat add enough marinade to fully coat the bottom of the pan. Once hot add swordfish steaks.
Cook for approximately 5-7 minutes before turning over with a spatula and cooking for the same amount of time on the other side.

I suggest adding something green and then… Serve and enjoy!!!!
