    Salmon in coconut milk?

    Does anyone have a recipe that isn't grilled? Poached or sautéed is fine. I have a really nice wild-caught filet and we haven't had meat in coconut milk in a while, so I promised the kids I'd look for some coconut curry thing. TIA

    I just got back from Jamaica where I watched a woman make a simple "steamed ginger fish" which was fantastic. She used snapper but I'm sure it would be great with salmon. Basically, throw some oil and butter in a pan and cook some thinly sliced carrots, onions and zucchini- or whatever veg you'd like- for a couple of minutes. Add in a good pile of minced garlic and ginger and some sliced hot peppers, and cook another minute. Add your seasoned pieces of fish, a few sprigs of fresh thyme, and a couple cups of coconut milk. Simmer covered for ten minutes or so, and then adjust seasoning.

    A really delicious way to cook it is to add chilli and lime to the coconut milk (1 chilli, juice of one lime ?experiment) and poach the salmon. It is a lovely combination.

    After you put the lime in the coconut, do you shake it all up?

    Thank you, Miss Lindsay and katemary. I used this Coconut Ginger Poached Salmon « Crunchy Soup recipe but the Jamaican one sounds like one to try next.

    Combine the chopped chilli and lime juice, put in heated pan first briefly then add coconut milk and stir.

    Sorry, it was an old reference from an old guy.
