Salmon with a sweet tropical marinade

I found this recipe by looking through salmon recipes on  I wanted something tropical-like to coat the salmon.  I found a recipe, but  of course, I changed it a bit to my liking 🙂

1 pound salmon or four 4 oz. filets

3/4 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup organic brown sugar

3/4 cup butter (I used Blue Bonnet margarine)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 

In a medium sauce pan, melt butter.  A quick method to melting butter is to cut it into slices.

Mix in brown sugar, honey, coconut.  Bring to a boil and stir occasionally.  Reduce heat to low.

Take a 9 x 13 baking dish and pour enough of the coconut marinade to just coat the bottom.  Lay salmon in the baking dish and pour about half of the coconut marinade on the top of the salmon. 

Cover dish with foil and cook until the salmon starts to look white and it is flaky when you cut it with a fork.  I put the other half of the marinade on it a little before it was finished cooking.

 * Remember: the key to cooking salmon is not to overcook it!  When finished cooking it is supposed to look pink and white (more like white with a little pink) and flaky.

I served the salmon with roasted veggies from TJ’s.  It was delicious 🙂

I haven’t found the WW points yet, but a 4 oz. filet of salmon is 5 points.  I didn’t use a much marinade on my filet so as the other three.  Points will vary depending on how much you use.  Enjoy!

***Update: Each serving is about 18 points! YOWZAS! Oh well, live in learn.  But hey, you could go to a restaurant and easily spend double or triple that on something with coconut.  If you have the points go for it! Just saying…
