The sweet and mildly spicy flavors of A Taste of Thai Peanut Sauce nicely balance the stronger flavor of salmon.


  • Oil for brushing skin and grill
  • 4-(6-8 oz) salmon fillets*, skin on (uniform thickness)
  • 1-13.5 oz can Coconut Milk
  • 1-3.5 oz box Peanut Sauce Mix
  • 1 lime, cut into 4 pieces
  • 4 tablespoons chopped peanuts
  • 4 tablespoons chopped basil
  • *Striped bass, red fish (croaker) or snapper can be substituted for salmon.


  1. Preheat grill to medium (325°-350°F).
  2. When grill is ready, oil salmon skin and grill grates for easy release. Place fillet skin side down on grill and cover. Cook 12-15 minutes (depending on thickness of fillet) or until fish is cooked through, but still moist.
  3. While the fish is cooking, make the peanut sauce by combining Peanut Sauce Mix, both inner envelopes, and Coconut Milk in a medium saucepan. Cook according to directions on Peanut Sauce Mix box.
  4. Pour some peanut sauce on a serving platter (or plates), and place cooked fish on top. Pour 1/4 cup of peanut sauce over each fillet and squeeze lime wedges over each.
  5. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and basil. Pour any leftover peanut sauce in a bowl, and serve on the side. This dish goes particularly well with a side of A Taste of Thai Jasmine Rice and a Thai Cucumber Salad.
