Salmon With Thai Coconut Cream Sauce
Looking for something fancy and delicious, try this Salmon With Thai Coconut Cream Sauce – a healthy fish dinner made under 30 minutes. This one-skillet salmon dish is made with Thai spices, onions, garlic, ginger, julienned bell peppers, carrots, zucchini and coconut milk. To finish this most flavourful creamy sauce, add some fresh lime juice and fresh herbs such as cilantro, Thai basil and or fresh mint. You can use just one of these herbs or all three, which is what I did. I always have fresh herbs growing in my kitchen or garden, so I like to add as many as I can to my recipes.
Let me show you how to make this simple salmon Thai dinner
First, you sear the salmon on both sides, creating a crisp coating. I like to keep the skin on the salmon for two reasons. Most of the omega-3 fatty acids are located in the salmon skin, so removing it strips away most of the nutritional benefits and the skin also adds extra flavour! Once you seared the salmon, it’s time to make the delicious Thai coconut cream sauce.
Using the same skillet add onions, garlic and bell peppers and cook until just tender. Then add the balance of ingredients and cook for a few minutes allowing all the flavours meld together. Now return the crispy salmon to the skillet and cook for about two more minutes, or until the salmon is fully cooked. That is it, how simple is that?
salmon dinner under 30 minutes,
The total time to make this healthy fish dinner is less than 30 minutes. Because the salmon is cooked in Thai coconut sauce, I like to serve this salmon dish with rice. But you can also serve the salmon over gluten-free pasta or simple parsley potatoes. For any leftover sauce, add a Healthy Gluten-Free Flax Bread because the bread is great for soaking up the Thai coconut cream sauce. Enjoy!
