1

Light the grill to prepare to cook the salmon.

2

Brush Salmon with olive oil, then season with a good amount of salt and a little pepper.

3

Put coconut milk, water and salt in a pot and stir together. Add the rice to the pot and bring to a boil. Stir, then cover and turn down to a simmer until all of the liquid has been absorbed.

4

While the rice is cooking, put the salmon on the grill skin side up. Cook for 6-7 minutes, then flip it onto the skin side for an additional 6-7 minutes. (Internal temp should be 145 degrees.)

**TIP** When you flip it, the salmon should come right off of the grill. If it doesn't, it isn't ready yet.

Make sure to have your Mango Tango ready when the fish is done cooking. The recipe can be found here:
