Hello friends– We’ve hit deep summer here. Those blazing days when the flowers are drooping in the front yard and our ice tea consumption takes a steep rise. So we are sitting down to easy meals that take a minimal amount of stove time and are satisfyingly light. Here’s our dinner this evening…
SALMON WITH COCONUT MILK CILANTRO SAUCE
4 salmon filets
2 tab. olive oil
garlic salt & freshly ground pepper
1 cup loosely packed cilantro
1/2 cup sliced green onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 lime, juiced
1/2 cup coconut milk
A dash of salt to taste
garnish: lime wedges
Heat a nonstick skillet with the olive oil. Liberally sprinkle garlic salt & freshly ground pepper on both sides of the salmon. Then lay them into the hot skillet. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side (depending on how thick the filet is).
While that is cooking, combine the cilantro, green onion, garlic, cumin, lime juice and coconut milk in a blender (or use a stick blender)– until it makes a smooth sauce. Taste and add a dash of salt if needed.
Place the hot salmon on a plate and spoon over the sauce. Serve it with a chunk of sturdy bread and a bright salad for a quick summer supper.
