Honey Coconut Salmon Recipe + WalMart Gift Card Giveaway

Unilever Sponsored

I have had so much fun experimenting with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!. So many recipes, so little time.

This is a recipe that is very simple and easy to make and will make the whole family happy. I have made this many times and is a now a classic in the home. People I know who don’t like fish or seafood still enjoy this delicious dish. It is simple and will make your kitchen smell amazing as well! This is always a great idea when salmon is on sale at your local grocery store. Here is a list of ingredients including the deliciously, creamy I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!, you will need to recreate our Honey Coconut Salmon Recipe.

Honey Coconut Salmon

Honey Coconut Salmon


  • 1 ½ Cups I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!
  • 1 Cup Honey
  • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Can Coconut Milk
  • 4 Salmon Steaks


  1. Wash the Salmon under cold water and dry it off with a paper towel. Make sure you get most of the slime off of it when washing it. This will help get rid of some of that nasty “fishy taste” no one likes.
  2. Start melting the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! in a pot. Make sure you do this slowly so you do not burn or torch it when melting.
  3. Once the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! is melted add the cup of honey and mix it in thoroughly.
  4. Then add the brown sugar to the mixture. This sound make the mixture a golden brown. You can add more sugar or honey depending on preference.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil and then remove from the heat and let it cool. You want it to cool enough that it still warm but the butter is not starting to solidify.
  6. Place the Salmon in a pan that is deep enough to hold the butter mixture as well.
  7. Once the salmon is on the pan slowly pour the mixture on the Salmon. When I do this I like to have the skin of the fish facing the top so all the meat is soaking in the butter.
  8. Then let it marinate for 30mins to 1hour.
  9. Preheat over to 375 degrees.
  10. Place the dish on the middle rack and cook it for 25-30 minutes.
  11. After the dish is finished cooking remove the Salmon from the mixture and dispose of the butter mixture. If you want to use the butter for a sauce (which I prefer) you can you just need to pour it back in the pot and let it come to a boil to eliminate any chances of food poisoning or salmonella.  Then you can serve it over your dish.

    Herbed Roasted Cod With Bell Peppers
    It was really hard to pick just one recipe! I love fish and we need to eat healthier so I picked this one. =) Thanks for the chance!

  2. Theresa Baichan says

    What a delicious meal to prepare for myself or a family member. I love fish and all the health benefits it provides for my body. This recipe seems easy to whip up and it delivers a great mouth watering taste. Problem is, I don’t think I will stop serving it to my family. Thanks for all the great recipes and ideas.

  3. Cindy Merrill says

    I’d like to try making the Cinnamon Walnut power bars. By the way, I usually use Land O’Lakes Margarine, which only has 3 ingredients…just wondering: How does that compare to “I can’t believe it’s not Butter” or Country Crock?

  4. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says

    I saw many recipes that I would love to try but one REALLY caught my eye:

    In the town where both my Honey/Hubby and me grew up there was (still is) a wonderful “Pancake House” that served dozens of different kind of pancakes from all over the world – and when I say a kid my most favorite was the “Dutch Baby Pancakes” – so just seeing the words brought back a flood of memories – and I would love to surprise my Hubby/Honey with this old favorite treat.

    Of course – at our old haunt they didn’t serve the Dutch Baby with all those divine fresh berries… but hey – I don’t mind that at all!
