"This salmon is my husband's favorite. Don't let the total time fool you -- very easy to make. This recipe is great served with mashed potatoes. You can taste the sauce before marinating to check the flavor. This gives a nice sweet taste to the salmon."

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, and mix in the honey, brown, sugar, and coconut. Bring to a boil, and remove from heat. Cool slightly, and transfer to a large bowl. Place the salmon in the bowl, and turn to coat. Cover, and marinate at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Spread enough of the marinade mixture in a baking dish to coat the bottom. Arrange the salmon in the dish, and pour some of the marinade over the top, being sure to get some of the coconut on the top.
  4. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, basting occasionally with the remaining marinade, until the salmon is flaked easily with a fork. Discard any leftover marinade, or bring to a boil, cook for 5 minutes, and spoon over salmon.

This recipe was absolutely delicious and full of subtle flavor. When I made it, I used coconut milk instead of flaked coconut. However, next time I make it I will lessen the amount of butter to ...

This was so good. Normally we do our salmon on the grill but this is best in the oven as it makes the coconut crisp. We will cut down the amount of marinade as we had more than half left over....

We cook this salmon on the grill and love it that way. Slightly sweet with crunchy coconut. Before pouring on the marinade, I set a bit aside to serve on the side as a dip or spread. That way...

If you're a salmon purist, don't try this recipe. I thought I would try something new, but this was entirely too sugary and sweet. I ended up scraping the coating off. Wouldn't recommend.

Very good! Not as crunchy as I thought it would be but, it was very tasty!! First, I marinated the salmon in a few Tbsps of lime juice for 2-3 hours. Personally, I like the way lime & coconut ta...

I was really disappointed with this. It was sickeningly sweet, and I couldn't even finish my salmon. (And I like to eat!) I followed the recipe exactly as indicated, but consistency was bad (goo...

This is my favorite salmon recipe. I never bake it anymore. It's so much easier to just throw everything into a foil pouch and throw on the BBQ or George Foreman. So good!

Absolutely stunning. One of the easiest yet tastiest dishes I ve prepared in a long time! Will be a regular favorite in future.

Delicious, I added a little coconut milk to the marinade and cut the amount of butter. It was great, thanks for sharing!
