Thai-Style Salmon – AIP Recipes

February 18, 2022

A fresh, uncooked salad-style vegetable sauce tops the hot baked salmon. The contrast in temperatures and textures is extremely satisfying. There is also a wonderful contrast between the richness of the salmon and the herbal, citrusy flavors of the vegetable mixture. Serving suggestion: For a one-dish meal, toss the vegetables with a bowl of whole-wheat linguine and serve the pasta topped with the salmon.

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin slivers
  • 4 salmon fillets, skin on (5 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint




Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons of the lime juice, the soy sauce, and sugar. Add the carrots and bell pepper, and toss to combine. Refrigerate until serving time.


Step 2:

Place the salmon fillets, skin-side down, on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the fish with the remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice, the coriander, and the salt. Roast for about 10 minutes, or until the fish just flakes when tested with a fork. Slip a spatula between the flesh and the skin and lift, leaving the skin behind.


Step 3:

Stir the cilantro and mint into the carrot-pepper mixture and spoon over the hot salmon.
