Coconut Garam Masala Salmon

An exotic-sounding salmon dish that’s actually a cinch to make! Recipe courtesy Chef Logan Mitchell of Cellar Door in San Diego. Serves 4.


  • 4 (4 oz) salmon fillets
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce:

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 Tblsp garam masala
  • 1 lemon zest and juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Pint cherry tomatoes
  • 2 Tblsp coconut oil
  • Optional: chili flakes or fresh chile

How to Prepare:

  1. Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Place salmon skin in pan skin side down and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, shaking the pan and carefully lifting the salmon with a spatula to loosen it from the pan.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium, cover the pan and cook until the salmon is just barely cooked through, about 3 minutes more. The end result should be crispy skin and medium rare flesh.
  4. Meanwhile, for the sauce, cook the first four ingredients in a saucepan for a few minutes until well combined. In a separate pan, saute the halved cherry tomatoes in the coconut oil until heated through. Add tomatoes to saucepan to combine, then pour mixture over medium rare salmon.
