Salmon with Coconut Prawns

Paleo – serves 2


  • 2 x 200g salmon pieces, skin on
  • 8 king/green prawns, peeled but with tails still on
  • 1 cup shredded coconut – the finer shred, the more they stick. I used quite large pieces this time and they weren’t quite as coated
  • 1 egg
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 1 bunch brocollini
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Dash of olive oil for cooking


  • In a deep based wok, heat coconut oil
  • In a smaller frypan head olive oil and cook salmon to desired texture (typically 5 – 6 minutes in total)
  • Whisk egg and black pepper in a small bowl. Pour coconut on a large plate, and dip each prawn into the egg mixture, then cover with coconut and place into the hot coconut oil. Cook for 1 – 2 minutes on each side. Remove and place to drain on a paper towel
  • Steam brocollini
  • Serve with a slice of lemon
