Soak a cedar plank in clean water for at least 2 hours.

Combine 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, 1 teaspoon good curry powder and 1 teaspoon half-sharp paprika in a small bowl.  Coat the fish with this mixture, sprinkle with bread crumbs and set aside.

Pulse together 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, 1 small green chili (optional) and 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice in a food processor.  Add to 1/2 cup coconut milk and simmer, stirring frequently until thickened, about 15 minutes. Adjust seasoning with sea salt and cracked pepper.

Place salmon fillets on soaked plank and cook in a 500 degree oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Serve with a wedge of fresh lime.

  1. Does salmon and curry go well together? I made this cocoa-based dry rub on salmon a couple of days ago, with a little paprika, dry mustard, etc., but it turned out more so-so. Would not repeat it. So far, the best thing for me on salmon is keeping it plain with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice. Especially Copper River salmon – to die for!
