Ingredients

  • 26 oz salmon fillets, skin removed
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • scallion, for garnish
  • sesame seeds, for garnish

For the Maple Glaze

  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot starch

For the Ginger Coconut Rice

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups jasmine rice, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated or crushed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 113.5 oz can of full fat coconut
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions

Method

  1. Make the rice: Add the oil, rice, garlic, fresh ginger, salt, water, and coconut milk to a medium non-stick saucepan that has a tight fitting lid. Cook the rice for 15-20 minutes until all of the liquid has absorbed and the rice is tender or according to the package instructions. Once the rice is fully cooked, fluff it with a fork and let cool slightly. Before serving add the sliced scallion and continue to fluff the rice until everything is well combined.
  2. Make the Maple Glaze: Add coconut aminos, maple syrup, sesame oil, sriracha, lime juice, and arrowroot starch to a small sauce pot. Whisk together until everything is well combined. Bring the sauce to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Let the sauce simmer for 2-4 minutes, or until it has thickened and coats the back of a spoon. Once thickened, turn off the heat.
  3. Make the salmon: Bring the salmon to room temperature and then pat the fish dry with a paper towel. Season each side with a bit of salt and pepper. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add 1/2 tablespoon of oil to the pan. Cook the salmon 4-5 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked to your liking. Remove the salmon from the pan and then use a basting brush to liberally coat the salmon with the maple glaze.
  4. Serve the salmon over the ginger coconut rice with veggies.
