Ginger, Tamari & Coconut Salmon

When I first started on my health journey, I so desperately needed to amp up my essential fatty acid intake, especially as I had been depriving my body of them for SO many years…

No matter how much “deep moisturising” cream I was putting on, my skin was always super dry, lips always bleeding, scalp always flakey, oh & cracked elbows & heels.. it was a lot of fun.

Queue in Essential Fatty Acids.

EFA’s play a HUGE role in our skin repair, the moisture content & how our skin handles environmental conditions.

But here’s the kicker…

Our body CANNOT produce it’s own EFA’s.

WE must get them through our diet!

and of course – what better way to do that than Salmon?

Only problem was… unless it was smoked… I just wasn’t a massive fan.

So little persistent me kept whipping up dish after dish until I hit the fish-pot! (Get it?)

Ginger, Tamari, Coconut, Salmon – oh boy do these ingredients get on like a house on fire! 

Not only does it taste awesome – the whole dish is just screaming with nourishing goodness!

On with the recipe…

Ginger, Tamari & Coconut Salmon (Serves 2)


2 Salmon Steaks (or fish of your choice)

1 Can BPA Free Coconut cream

1/4 Cup Tamari

3 Garlic cloves, minced

1 Thumbsize Knob of Ginger, grated

1 chili, diced

2 Tbsp. Sesame Seeds

4 Cups of seasonal organic veggies (make sure to include some green)

 Crunchy Slaw for top of Fish

1 Large Carrot, grated

1 Large Beetroot, grated

1 small apple, grated


Pour a 1/4 of the coconut cream in a pan on medium heat.

Add the garlic, ginger & chili into the cream & cook for a few minutes.

Add salmon steaks & then veggies, positioning the veggies around the sides the salmon.

Add the rest of the coconut cream, tamari & seasme seeds.

Cook for 5 minutes  & then flip salmon. Cook for another 5 minutes or until Salmon has cooked through.

Mix Carrot, Beetroot & Apple together & serve on top of Salmon

– Healthy Notes – 

Wild Salmon is extremely difficult to get in Australia (even if you see it in your “fresh” fish shops – it’s most likely farmed. We purchase our Salmon frozen from a brand called “This Fish” which is Certified Organic!)

Other Good fish choices include Snapper & Barramundi

Make sure you get a BPA Free can of coconut cream – we use OnRich Organic Coconut Cream 

Leave the minced garlic out for 10 minutes before you use it, this will activate its anti-bacterial properties
