My son’s buddy, a sweet big-eyed 13-year-old boy, is a frequent visitor at our house. He is there so often that sometimes I feel like I am a mom of three.
This kid loves my cooking! So much, that sometimes he calls me back for a recipe for last night’s dinner. THIS is his most favorite dish!
Salmon with Fire-Roasted Tomato Coconut Sauce
This sauce is a base for just about any kind of protein you crave, whether it is chicken, fish, even tofu.
- 3 tbsp Avocado Oil
- 1 Yellow Onion
- 1 tbsp Ginger, minced
- 2 Red Bell Peppers
- 1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
- 1 (28-oz) can Muir Glen Organic Crushed Fire Roasted Tomatoes
- 1 cup Broth or Water
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 2 tsp Sea Salt or to taste (I use salt pretty generously)
- 1 tsp Black Pepper
- 1 (13.5-oz) can Whole Fat Coconut Milk
- 1 to 1 ¼ lb skinless Salmon fillets, cut into 10-inch cubes
- In a medium pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, ginger, bell peppers and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring, until the onion is translucent, about 15 minutes
- Add fire roasted tomatoes, the broth (or water) and garlic powder. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Process in a food processor if you like a smoother consistency (I do)
- Add coconut milk. Simmer for another 5 minutes to allow the flavors to blend
- Add salmon and toss lightly to coat with the sauce. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until it is cooked through
- Serve over Kelp Noodles, Cauliflower rice or Zoodles
