Coconut Lime Salmon

view of plate from above

Looking for a tasty weeknight meal? This Coconut Lime Salmon recipe has a sweet creamy option or a slightly spicy variation made with the subtle kick of jalapeno peppers. Either way, it is made in one skillet and comes together in about 30 minutes. The Salmon is first pan-seared to give it a nice crispy exterior around the soft flakey meat, which sits in a creamy coconut milk sauce as it bakes to perfection. Served with your favorite style of rice, this dish is Thai inspired with the coconut milk and optional spice.

A bowl of rice smothered in this coconut lime sauce with the wild salmon perched on top makes a complete meal in itself — but if you are in need of a side veggie, a green salad with a miso dressing pairs well since there is miso broth in the sauce. As far as drink pairings, try something with lime, like a margarita, to highlight the lime in this dish.
