  • Grilled Salmon With Avocado-Coconut Sauce
  • 4 salmon fillets;
  • 1 ripe avocado;
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk;
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro minced;
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice, lime zest;
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder;
  • 1 tsp. onion powder;
  • 1 tbsp. lime zest;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper;
  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. Season the salmon fillets and sprinkle with zest of lime.
  3. Place on the preheated grill, and cook for 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. While salmon fillets are grilling, add avocado, coconut milk, cilantro, lime juice, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to taste in a blender or food processor and pulse until sauce is creamy. If the sauce is not creamy enough, add more coconut milk, 1 to 2 tbsp. at a time.
  5. Let the salmon rest for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.
  6. Serve the salmon topped with avocado-coconut sauce, and top with lime wedges.
