  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yields: 4 servings


For the Salmon

3 tbsp virgin coconut oil

1/2 cup panko

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1 1/4 tsp kosher salt, divided

2 tbsp mayonnaise

4 (4-6 oz.) salmon fillets

For the Broth, Beans and Greens, and Assembly

1 (14.5 oz.) can coconut milk

2 tbsp finely grated ginger

1 tsp sugar

1 1/2 tsp kosher salt, divided

1 tbsp fresh lime juice

2 tbsp virgin cocount oil

1 (14.5 oz) can chickpeas, kidney beans, or black beans, drained and rinsed

1 bunch curly kale, stems removed, torn into small pieces

4 cups steamed rice

lime wedges (for serving)


For the Salmon

1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium until melted. Add panko, pepper, paprika, cayenne, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until panko is golden brown, 2–3 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Wipe skillet clean; reserve for beans and greens.

2 Line a quarter sheet pan or other small rimmed baking dish with parchment paper, then arrange salmon fillets skin side down; season with remaining 3/4 tsp. salt. Using a small spoon or offset spatula, spread mayonnaise across salmon, then sprinkle spiced panko over, pressing lightly to adhere. Roast until salmon is opaque, 8–10 minutes.

For the Broth and Beans and Greens

1 Heat coconut milk, ginger, sugar, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/4 cup water in a small pot over medium and bring to a boil. Immediately remove from heat and stir in lime juice.

2 Heat oil in reserved skillet over medium until melted. Add beans and kale, then cover pan and cook, stirring once halfway through, until kale is wilted, 2–3 minutes. Season with remaining 1/2 tsp. salt and stir to combine.

3 Divide rice among bowls, then top with beans and greens mixture. Using a fish spatula, lift each fillet up off its skin—the skin will stick to the paper—and arrange in each bowl. Pour in coconut broth. Serve with lime wedges alongside.
