1 piece of salmon fillet, about 1/2 pound, boned, skin on

2 slices two of ginger root

3 tablespoons dark coconut amino sauce

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon of red chili flakes

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper corns

1 or 2 tablespoons coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon of sesame seeds for garnish

1/2 chopped green onion for garnish

marinating coconut  SalmonMarinate the salmon in the ginger, sesame oil, coconut amino sauce, red chili flakes and black pepper for 30 minutes to 3 hours prior to cooking.

Heat a large ceramic coated frying pan over medium heat with coconut oil and add the salmon skin side down (reserve the marinade). This prevents the fish from sticking to the pan as well as prevents the meat from shrinking up.

After 3 minutes turn the fish and add the marinade, and cook another 2 to 3 minutes.

Coconut SalmonServe over a bowl of steamed rice and garnish with sesame seeds and diced green onions or another green like cilantro or parsley.
