Coconut Poached Salmon with Coconut Lime Basmati Rice and Sweet Potato Noodles: Clean Eating, Gluten Free

This meal is the perfect balance of protein, healthy fats and complex carbs, I love it at brekky but is also a great dinner/lunch. You have to try poaching salmon in coconut cream, it feels like a tropical holiday šŸ˜ Basmati rice is higher in fibre and nutrients plus has a lower glycemic index than other rice. Coconut poached Salmon

  • 2 salmon fillets (I like skin on as the Skin is so nutritious!)
  • 1/2 lime – use remaining half for rice (below)
  • 200ml canned coconut cream
  • Sweet potato noodles recipe at Sweet Potato Noodles

1. Preheat oven to 180 C

2. Place coconut cream and juice of 1/2 the lime in a pan over medium heat

3. Place the salmon on a lined baking tray

4. Once the cream starts to simmer pour it over the salmon

5. Cover with foil and bake for around 10 minutes

Coconut lime rice

  • 100g dry basmati rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1/2 lime
  • Pinch of black pepper

1. Rinse and drain rice in a bowl

2. Place all ingredients in a pot over medium heat until it starts to boil

3. When it starts to boil reduce to a low heat, cover with a lid (or I use a smaller pan as I broke my lid šŸ™Š)

enjoy! X
