- ¼ cup (60ml) coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons lime juice, plus extra wedges to serve
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce

- 1 teaspoon finely grated lime rind
- 6 x 150g salmon fillets, skin on
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 cup (75g) shredded coconut
- sea salt flakes, for sprinkling
- micro mint leaves and steamed rice (optional), to serve
- Preheat oven to 240°C. Place a large oven tray in the oven for 5 minutes to heat. Place the coconut milk, lime juice, fish sauce sugar and lime rind in a small bowl and mix to combine. Set aside.
