Simple and Savory

I LOVE salmon. There are endless ingredients that can make salmon great! Last night I tried a new one and it was, well in one word......savory! The secret ingredient? Coconut butter. Here's a simple salmon dish. 1-2 tbsp melted coconut butter mix in with balsamic vinegar, sea salt, and black pepper. I added a little lemon as well. Then coat your salmon with this marinade and let it sit in room temp (covered or in a plastic bag) for 10 minutes or so. I just heat the oven while this is marinating. You don't want to put it in the fridge because the coconut butter will harden. Then bake accordingly. 400F at 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Most of the time its 15 minutes or so. See, simple and savory.

For more uses of coconut (butter, oil, milk, flour, etc.) check out the recipes and facts at Marks Daily Apple. YUM!

Happy Friday and Have a Great weekend!



Good luck to all my friends and clients running the 3M this weekend in Austin!

I love salmon! I could eat it at every meal and be a happy camper. Usually I just season it but I bet it's delicious with a marinade!
