Ingredients

  • 4 medium salmon filets
  • ¼ cup peanut oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4 tbsp peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp sambal Asian chilli paste
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice from half a lime
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • ½ cup roasted peanuts chopped (unsalted, shells and skins removed)

Instructions

  • Wash and pat dry the salmon with a paper towel
  • Mix the remaining ingredients
  • Marinate the salmon in the sauce for 1 hour
  • Heat the oven to 400 F
  • Place the salmon and sauce into a greased Dutch oven
  • Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes or until salmon is cooked throughout

Notes

As with most fish, be careful not to overcook it, as it will dry out. Using pure, all-natural peanut butter is best. Serve with jasmine rice and stir-fried vegetables. Garnish with lime and cilantro.
