Toasted Coconut and Lime Salmon

Toasted Coconut and Lime Salmon

A simple marinade and a crunchy crust are the perfect complements to wild caught salmon fillets in this recipe for Toasted Coconut and Lime Salmon.

In this recipe we’ve included coconut products like coconut aminos, shredded coconut, and coconut oil, which are all helpful for maintaining a healthy balance in your gut.

Coconut aminos is a key ingredient in the marinade. Made from coconut blossom nectar from the coconut palm tree, it makes a perfect substitution for soy sauce and is excellent for marinades. The nectar is fermented and then blended with sea salt, producing a unique salty and sweet sauce that adds a hint of umami to recipes. Paired with fresh lime juice in this recipe, it creates a marinade with a simple, clean taste that enhances the flavor of the salmon.

To finish the dish, unsweetened shredded coconut is sprinkled over the salmon fillets. The result is a crust as crispy as breadcrumbs, creating a nice crunchy texture.

This is a super-simple recipe that might just become your new favourite way to prepare salmon!

    Delicious + Easy. I may marinate it a bit longer next time, but it had a good amount of flavor for the 30 min marinade. Served with roasted broccolini. Will definitely be making it again.
