    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

    Ingredients:

    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.
