Carrot, Mango, Mussels Hash Recipe [Paleo, AIP]
We all know that seafood is super healthy for us, but it’s often hard to get more of it into our diets.
Unless you’re used to cooking and eating fish and shellfish, they can seem very foreign and weird. Their texture is odd and their taste is even odder.
But, please give seafood a chance. Try making them once than just once and try different Paleo seafood recipes. It’s crazy just how nutritious and delicious they are!
And if you’re on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP), then it’s even more important for you to get more nutrient-dense foods like seafood into your diet.
So, this recipe is both Paleo and AIP, and it’s full of great seafood. If you have trouble finding mussels (look for them canned or frozen as well as fresh), then use shrimp, cockles, or crab meat instead. Then, to make this dish even more nutritious without any effort, we recommend adding some canned sardines on top.

We’ve been in Portugal for the past few weeks, and there are some amazing canned sardines here. This is one of the most famous brands here – Pinhais – and it’s absolutely amazing! (We’re quite into sardines.)
Sardines happen to be super nutritious and very cheap. Sardines are definitely Paleo, although you should buy sardines in olive oil (as many of them are in sunflower oil).
