For Salmon

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp lightly-packed finely grated ginger
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 2 lbs boneless salmon filets skin on or off - either is fine, cut in 1" pieces

For Peanut Satay Sauce

  • 3/4 cup coocnut milk the rest of the can!
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp red curry paste you can swap in green but it'll be spicier
  • 1 tbsp lime juice


  • Whisk together first six ingredients in a shallow baking dish. Add salmon and toss to coat evenly. Let stand 30 minutes at room temperature (or up to 2 hours in the fridge).
  • Meanwhile, make peanut sauce by whisking together all ingredients over medium-low heat until smooth.
  • To grill salmon, preheat grill (or grill pan) over medium-high heat. Thread salmon onto skewers. Grease grates. Grill salmon for 4-5 minutes, or until it releases easily. Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes, until it just turns opaque in the middle.
  • Serve with peanut sauce.
