Method

  • Prepare the salmon; Preheat oven to 200C and line a baking tray with foil or set an outdoor grill to medium high and cover grill with aluminium foil. In a small bowl, mix 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, salt and pepper. Brush over the salmon fillet, and let marinate.
  • For the sauce place the blueberries, vinegar, lemon zest and juice, thyme, coconut milk, water and vanilla extract in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer. Continue to simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or until the sauce reduces by half. Add in the coconut oil and cook for 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • While the sauce is cooking, chop the tomatoes and place in the oven or the grill alongside the marinated salmon. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until just cooked.
  • Meanwhile, add 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil to a frying pan and add the kale and spinach and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Once the salmon and tomatoes are cooked, pour the sauce over the salmon and serve with the vegetables.
