Serves: 4
  • 4 salmon fillets (all equal sizes)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp ginger, grated
  • 1 long red chili, chopped
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 1 lime, juice & zest
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 handful of fresh coriander
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Lime wedges to garnish
  1. In a pan, a splash of olive oil and place the salmon skin side down. Cook for 2 minutes on each side to brown. Turn pan off and set aside.
  2. In another pan over a medium heat, place the remainder olive oil along with the garlic, ginger, chili and onion. Saute for a few minutes until it starts to caramelize.
  3. Add coconut milk and stir combining everything. Simmer for a minute and add the lime juice, zest and honey. Simmer for 5 minutes until fragrant. Taste & add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Add the salmon and poach in the sauce until cooked to your liking. Between 2 and 5 minutes is recommended. I prefer my salmon on the rare side, but everyone likes it cooked differently.
  5. Serve on cauliflower rice or with other steamed vegetables such as zucchini ribbons.
  6. Garnish with chopped coriander and lime wedges.
