Total TimeServings

20 minutes



  • 1 cup canned unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 4 tsp. soy sauce
  • 4 tsp. fish sauce
  • 4 tsp. honey
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 oz. each)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish


In small saucepan, boil first 5 ingredients until sauce is reduced to 1/3 cup, 5 minutes. Season fish. In skillet, cook fish in oil over medium until opaque in center, 3 minutes per side. Spoon sauce over fish. Top with cilantro.  

MAKE A SPLASH: Fish sauce isn't just for Asian dishes like this one. A dash of the stuff adds salty flavor to sautéed greens, marinades, tomato sauce, and more. (We promise it won't make your sauce taste fishy!)
