Found this yummy looking recipe online and decided to share with you guys. I think I will have to try it, although I don’t know where I getting the passion fruit sauce from eh.
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons grated coconut, preferably fresh
- 1½ cups jasmine rice
- 1½ cups unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
SALMON WITH PASSION FRUIT SAUCE
- 4 salmon fillets (5 to 6 ounces each, approximately 3/4 inches thick)
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 small onion, shredded
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 cup frozen passion fruit pulp (or homemade)
- 1/2 cup table cream or crème fraîche
- 1/2 cup fresh mint, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
For the Coconut Rice:
In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, add the coconut oil and coconut flakes. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until golden, stirring often. Add the rice and stir until all the grains are well coated. Add the coconut milk, water and salt. Stir once. Bring to a light boil and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until the liquids have been absorbed, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for at least 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.
For the Salmon with Passion Fruit Sauce:
Preheat the oven to 375°. Season the salmon fillets with the salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon canola oil, rubbing the fillets on both sides. If using a regular oven, bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork. For a convection oven, bake the salmon at 350° for 13 minutes or until it flakes easily with a fork.
Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat the butter and remaining canola oil. Add the onion and cook over medium-high heat until translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar and passion fruit pulp. Cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Fold in the table cream or crème fraîche and remove from the heat.
In a small bowl, combine the mint and cilantro.
Place the salmon fillets on individual plates and add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the passion fruit sauce. Top with the fresh herbs mix and serve immediately over the Coconut Rice.
