We try to eat salmon a lot because it's so healthy, and I love thinking of new ways to make it different and delicious. This dazzler is easy and is my go-to meal for company. —Joni Hilton, Rocklin, California

Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoons Caribbean jerk seasoning
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup cream of coconut
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place fillets in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Spread mayonnaise over fillets; sprinkle with jerk seasoning.
  2. Bake until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 18-22 minutes. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small saucepan, combine sour cream, cream of coconut, and lime zest and juice; cook and stir over medium-low heat until blended.
  3. Drizzle fillets with sauce; sprinkle with coconut.
Editor's Note
To toast coconut, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
