Thai Salmon

Serves 4

My Thai Salmon is special enough for a dinner party and fast and easy enough for a mid-week family dinner. It filled with nutrition & great Thai flavors. This a great make ahead dinner party dish too – you can complete it the day before up to the baking point then just bake it when your guests arrive.

What You’ll Need:

4 Individual Baking Dishes

A Sharp Kitchen Knife

A Citrus Squeezer

Measuring Cups & Spoons

A Micro Plane or Other Fine Grater

A Medium Sized Mixing Bowl

A Whisk


4 – 6 oz Pieces of Wild King Salmon

12 oz Red or Yellow Cherry Tomatoes

1 Red or Yellow Pepper, De-Seeded & Thinly Sliced

14 fl oz  can Low Fat Coconut Milk

1 Inch Piece Ginger Root

2 Tsp Minced Garlic

1 Tsp Sea Salt

2 Limes, Juice Only (About a 1/4 Cup Juice)

Pinch Red Pepper Flakes

1/4 Cup Fresh Mint Leaves, Roughly Chopped For Garnish

How To Put It Together:

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

2) Pour the coconut milk into a measuring cup or medium sized mixing bowl and grate the ginger directly into the bowl. To the coconut milk add the minced garlic, the sea salt, the lime juice & the pinch of red pepper flakes & whisk the mixture together.

3) Place one salmon filet in each of the baking dishes. Scatter the tomatoes & bell peppers around the fish filets, distributing them evenly between all the baking dishes. If you are using red cherry tomatoes, then use yellow peppers; if you are using yellow cherry tomatoes then use red peppers – you want the colors to be BRIGHT.

4) Place the baking dishes in the center of a pre heated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes or until the fish flakes on top when pricked with a fork. Remove the baking dishes from the oven & scatter the mint leaves on top.

5) Serve & enjoy!

Nina’s Tasty Tips:

You can make this dish the day before a dinner party. Just cover the baking dishes with plastic wrap after step three & bake them when your guests arrive.
