Paleo Dinner Recipe Red snapper, Coconut And Salsa
The use of a pineapple salsa is basically my personal choice. I have also tried mango salsa or even plain old tomato salsa and they all go great with this dish so try it out.
I opt for red snapper from sustainable sources and local. It’s important to use coconut oil as a cooking fat for A true Paleo version. The vegetables and pineapple are from local farmers to reduce chemicals and carbon footprint.
This is one of those dishes that will bring you tanginess to your life. I have tried storing it for later consumption but I am not sure with fish as fresh fish is always the best.
This recipe makes 4 servings. Has a prep time of about 15 minutes and 8 minutes cooking time. Also there’s marination for about 2 hours which you need to take into account.
The whole dish for 4 servings contains
Ingredients for the salsa
1 small pineapple diced
1 onion diced
1 bell pepper finely diced
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp coconut oil
Salt and pepper
Ingredients for the snapper
4 red snapper fillets (obviously)
Juice of 2.5 limes
1 clove garlic minced
4 tbsp coconut flakes
2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
Coconut oil to cook
Salt and pepper
- Mix garlic and the lime juice. Marinate the fish in this in room temperature for 2 hours
- Add thyme leaves and coconut flakes to the fish using slight pressure to make sure coconut and thyme sticks to fish
- Now to make the salsa, mix pineapple, onion, pepper, paprika, coconut oil and lemon juice to make the salsa. Season with salt and pepper where needed.
- Now cook fillets for about 4 minutes per side in a skillet on medium heat. I like to dash some lime juice at this point for more flavour.
- Serve with the pineapple salsa on the side.
