1 cup Coconut Milk (I use Trader Joe’s Organic in a can)

2/3 cup of cashew butter (I used Justin’s) or 1 cup Raw Cashews

Juice from 1 Lime

2 tsp Red Thai Curry Paste (I used Thai Kitchen)

1/2 tsp salt (I use sea salt by Trader Joe’s)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp Coconut Aminos it Low Sodium Soy Sauce

1 cup Coconut water

8 (6oz.) Salmon Fillet patted dry with paper towel on both side



Smoked paprika

Ground turmeric

2 Tbsp Avocado Oil


To make the sauce, place all ingredients up until the salmon into a high speed blender. I use the Ninja Professional with Auto IQ. Blend until smooth. Set aside.

In the meantime, heat your oil in a large 12″ pan. Sprinkle your fish with salt, pepper, turmeric and smoked paprika and sear the fish top side down on high for 2 min to get a nice sear. Flip the fish over, lower the heat on low and pour the coconut sauce over the fish. Cover and poach the fish for 10 min on low. Sprinkle some fresh or dried cilantro on top. Serve with rice or orzo and some steamed broccoli.

Lemon Cilantro Salmon Marinade

September 22nd, 2017 | Posted by Milana in Lunch/Dinner | Recipes - (0 Comments)

TGIF! For those who absolutely love baked Salmon, here is a MUST TRY recipe for a Marinade that will have you going back for seconds! This is by far the most requested recipe in my house and I must say I can’t blame them. This salmon comes out so moist and tender and practically melts in your mouth! Go ahead and make it tonight for dinner, but start now so the Marinade has a chance to penetrate through the flesh fibers. It requires at least an hour in the fridge. The most 12 hours. This recipe was given to me by my cousin Polina and I couldn’t be more grateful to her for it. Thanx Polly!


3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Lemon, juiced

1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro

3 cloves garlic, minced

1-1/2 tsp Seafood Spice by Pereg

1-1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp ground turmeric

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp pepper

6 (4oz.) filet of salmon


Mix all ingredients together except for salmon. Pour it over the salmon and let it sit in the fridge for 1-12 hours. Heat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, put the salmon on the baking sheet and bake for 10-12 min.
