Baked Salmon & Onions with Creamy Olive & Macadamia Nut Sauce...

It is nice to be in North Carolina for a visit! Compared to the Texas heat, it feels like paradise. :-P

Mom made some salmon today and I thought it looked kind of bare so I decided to experiment with some random ingredients. :-D This is the result and it was unanimous that it was yummy. Make the sauce before you bake the salmon so you can serve the fish right out of the oven. Just a note to say that this is gluten, egg, dairy, soy, and peanut free. :-)

~Baked Salmon & Onions~
4 pieces Salmon
1 onion, sliced
Olive oil
Brush Salmon and onions with olive oil and season to taste.
Bake at 350 until it flakes with a fork.

~Creamy Olive & Macadamia Nut Sauce~
1 teaspoon ghee
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 small onion, diced
2 small cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
1/2 cup kalamata olives, sliced in half
1 can coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
Dash of curry
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Saute onion in ghee and coconut oil until transparent. Add garlic and stir until browned and then toss in the nuts. Watch carefully because you don't want the nuts to burn! Add in the rest of the ingredients and cook on medium low until thickened (about 10-15 minutes), stirring every couple of minutes. Pour over Salmon and serve with a sprig of fresh basil!
