4 servingservings


  • 1 oz. 30 g butter or olive oil, for greasing the baking dish
  • 25 oz. 700 g salmon or white fish, in pieces
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp butter or ghee
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp red curry paste or green curry paste
  • 14 oz. 400 g coconut cream
  • ½ cup 120 ml fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 15 oz. 450 g cauliflower or broccoli


Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a medium-sized baking dish.
  2. Place the fish pieces snuggly in the baking dish. Salt and pepper generously and place a tablespoon of butter on top of each fish piece.
  3. Mix coconut cream, curry paste and chopped cilantro in a small bowl and pour over the fish.
  4. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the fish is done.
  5. In the meantime, cut the broccoli or cauliflower into small florets and boil in lightly salted water for a couple of minutes. Serve with the fish.


If you can't find coconut cream in your grocery store you can use coconut milk, but then use two cans. Let sit in the refrigerator for a few hours or over night. Carefully open the cans and remove the coconut water but don't throw it out. You can save it and use in smoothies and other refreshing drinks.

    After 10 weeks of keto I have lost 15lbs woohoo loving all the dishes

    For this weeks menus I decided it would a good idea to go back to the two week challenge recipes

    The first time I made this dish I used coconut milk not coconut cream as the cream seemed to be a solid mass ( i had never cooked with coconut cream before)

    It was a disappointment but yesterday I cooked it with coconut cream and it was delicious and now ticked as a favourite :-)

  2. Zen
    I don’t like coconut and fish is there a way I can change the whole dish
  3. Dee
    Is the coconut cream supposed to be sweetened or unsweetened? I screwed up and used cream of coconut the first time and just realized it. 🤦🏻‍♀️
  4. Tra y
    I messed up I guess because the dish said low carb Keto and my meal is very sweet and the coconut cream says 18 carbs which I didn't look at when taking off the shelf.

    Amazing dish, but I guess I grabbed the sweetened cream

  5. Lucy
    OMG..This is beautiful. I wasn’t looking forward to it, as I thought it wouldn’t be nice. I was pleasantly surprised. One of my favourite meals.
  6. Amanda
    This was SO good. And so easy to prepare. Probably the easiest dish to throw together so far that I've tried on here, and the flavor was amazing. Loved it!
  7. Robin
    I'm SO bummed! I didn't read the comments about the Coconut cream vs cream of coconut and I used the latter. I made it, saw that it was very runny, took one very sweet bite and looked at the can and saw 18gms carbs! Now two beautiful salmon filets and all the ingredients that went into making it are going down the garbage disposal! Please put a note in the recipe about this!

    Could i use coconut milk instead of cream?
  9. Janice
    Don't use creamed coconut! I especially went out to buy some - mine came in a packet and not in a can. It's not the same as coconut cream. sauce is really powdery and thick. I even added water to thin it out. I can see it would be tasty with the right type of coconut. You need to be clearer.
  10. Chantel
    If I can't find curry paste can I use curry power instead?
  11. Natalia
    I don't like curry can I switch the curry out for maybe a tomato paste or even a cream cheese?

    Well Tanji why don’ you enlighten us 🤔I think I know what we all did wrong ....friend as you did and I did the mistake and since Tanji wasn’ t kind enough to tell us only shame us what we did wrong I will explain ....As so many made this mistake ....we thought that the refrigerating was only for the coconut cream to scope out the water ..I thought the further instructions about draining the water was only for the cream The directions were not very clear on that . I thought yes they gave us a substitute but didn’t clearly explain that the milk had to be drained of water also 😤. It had an awesome favor but more like a soup 🤣🤣

    lol. Was thinking the same thing!
  15. Arty
    I can't stomach coconut. What can I use to replace coconut everything?
  16. Scott
    We used a can of coconut milk, the sauce was a little thin but still had good flavor and once you roll your cauliflower around it in you won't be one bit disappointed.
  17. Arty
    Thank you Scott, but I can't stand the taste of coconut. I can taste coconut water, milk, oil etc. in most foods. I notice that coconut is used in a lot of the recipes. I made the fish dish with heavy cream and it was good. I truly appreciate your response.

    Absolutely love this recipe. Quick and so tasty. But why is it 880 calories per portion?? I can't work it out.

    I started Keto 25th June so just over 4 months I started at 208lbs I am down to 178lbs

    My wife needs to lose weight too but dosn't stick to less than 20g carbs a day she hasn't lost any weight

    I have no idea how to convince her to adopt Keto anymore perhaps she needs a real kick up her backside from someone hehe

    Ooops meant to say this recipe is delicious and we are having it tonight
  21. Andrew
    on Keto you don't need to count calories lots of information on the website as to why not but as an example 100calorie piece of fish vs 100 calorie bar of chocolate are they equal ? of course not
  22. Noel
    One of the nicest meals for such a long time. Delicious
  23. Stephanie
    Look in the Asian isle for the unsweetened coconut cream. The one by the drink mixers is sweetened and has a lot of sugar. The one in the Asian isle has 1g carb
  24. Susan
    All these dishes have been fabulous. Quick and easy to prepare.....a joy for a working woman!
    Lets hope the weight loss goes with it to!
  25. Glen
    This recipe is outstanding. Great flavor! I suggest putting cauliflower florettes into pan and I also added sliced shiitake mushrooms. Baking w/ fish at 400 degrees came out perfectly cooked.
  26. Andrew
    This smelled delicious, but despite using the specified amount of curry paste and coconut cream, the sauce was very thin and bland.
