  • salt and pepper
  • 1 1 lime, for servinglimes, for serving

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Start with the lime mayonnaise. Stir in the juice and the zest from half a lime into the mayonnaise. Add more lime juice, zest and salt to taste. Let sit in the refrigerator.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan or a wok on fairly high heat. Add cabbage and curry paste. Sauté until the cabbage has turned a nice color, but is still chewy. Stir thoroughly. Salt and pepper. Add the sesame oil towards the end and keep hot while frying the salmon.
  3. Salt and pepper the salmon pieces on both sides and dip in sesame seeds to cover.
  4. Fry the salmon in a generous amount of butter on medium high for a couple of minutes on each side. Baste the salmon pieces with the melted butter in the pan. The butter should not turn brown, save for serving.
  5. Serve salmon, sautéd butter, cabbage and the lime mayonnaise with a lime wedge.

Tip!

Let the salmon sit at room temperature before frying, so it's not cold when you add it to the frying pan. If you add a piece of cold salmon to your pan the temperature drops, and you will end up with boiled fish instead of sautéed.

You could also add cilantro to the mayo, for an extra depth of flavor!

    How did you get 44 carbs for this recipe. My calculations are closer to 11 carbs for the entire recipe, not per serving.

    When you say 4 servings that it mean to eat in one meal?

    4 servings means it will feed 1 person for 4 meals or 4 people for 1 meal.
