Salmon With Coconut Cream Sauce
Salmon is so tasty and healthy! I was really ready for a fish dinner after this last week of poultry and miscellaneous meals! Things have been off schedule lately! I served this with a side of steamed zucchini and, as ALWAYS, a garden salad! I NEVER get tired of salads!
I've also been cleaning out the cupboards... so, I've been trying to create meals with supplies on hand! This worked out very well.
about a 16 oz. salmon filet (wild caught)
3/4 shallots, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. olive oil
2 T fresh basil, chopped
zest from one lemon
fresh lemon juice, from one lemon
1/2 C low fat coconut milk
Season salmon with some pepper and sea salt (if desired) and quickly grill on both sides. Place salmon on a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a skillet, saute garlic and shallots in olive oil. Add lemon zest and lemon juice. Slowly add coconut milk and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat and add basil. Pour sauce over salmon and bake for 10-15 minutes. Simple, tasty and Paleo! Hope you enjoy! :-)
