Salmon With Thai Basil Coconut Sauce~THM S meal

This is so good you will want to lick the pan! 

I love Thai food and this recipe totally satisfied my cravings.

Nutritious and delish!

Two salmon fillets
1 Tbls. coconut oil
1/2 can coconut milk
1 zucchini
1/2 jalapeno seeded and sliced
a palm full of fresh Thai basil torn, regular basil can be subbed
a little Siracha hot sauce (to taste) red pepper flakes can be subbed
Salt and pepper
1 tsp Truvia, (I like my sauce sweet) sweeten to taste.

Brown salmon in coconut oil till 3/4 cooked and set aside
Saute zucchini and jalapeno till tender. Add coconut milk and all remaining ingredients. Reduce sauce till thickened, about 10 minutes on medium heat. Add salmon and cook another 5 minutes or till cooked to your preference.

Serve with 1/4 cups brown rice for a THM S meal.

This serves two large portions.

I hope you love it as much as I did!

Blessings, Nicole

Nicole, this looks great! But, if serving it with 3/4 cup of brown rice it would make this a Crossover meal. Rice is an E food, but the 1 tablespoon of coconut oil plus the coconut milk makes the main dish an S meal. So, if you eat it without rice it would make a GREAT S - use cauli-rice. Or use low-fat coconut milk, only two teaspoons of coconut oil and then you can use the brown rice. :-)
Thank you so much for linking at Trim Healthy Tuesday! I hope you'll do so each week!!!
