Fish is a diet staple for me.
Oddly, I refused to eat seafood until 2 years ago.
When you eat as much seafood as I do, it’s bound to get a little strange. I’ve had some fails, but often it pretty good!
Today’s recipe involves salmon and peanut butter, as I further attempt to prove that peanut butter is good on anything.
This isn’t so far out there. Many of you have had Pad Thai before. That’s just noodles and shrimp (or chicken/tofu) in a peanut sauce. This is a similar concept, but baked. I used my Thai Peanut Sauce as the topping. I think it work really well here with the rich, slightly sweet salmon.
I topped mine with fresh basil and ate it with raw asparagus and BBQ Cauliflower Bites. This would also be fantastic on a salad or on pastas. Maybe with red bell pepper and carrots?
Thai Peanut Salmon
- 1 batch of Thai Peanut Sauce
- 6-8 ounces of salmon
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Place salmon, skin side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet (you can use a non-stick sheet, but the foil makes for an easier clean up).
Prepare peanut sauce and spread evenly across salmon.
Bake until salmon is just cooked through, 10-12 minutes. This may vary based on the thickness of the filet.
Plate and enjoy!
Makes 2 servings.

Sarah, don’t comment. I know you think this is normal. You embody strange. But good.
Can anyone name something peanut butter (or nut butter of your choosing) is not good on?
Have your taste buds changed a lot over the years? Do you like seafood?
