Who says you need to leave home to get a taste of the tropics? Get whisked away with this recipe for Island Coconut Drum with Peach Salsa featuring fresh in-season peaches and our thai-inspired Island Coconut Blend.
1 peach, pitted and diced
1/2 jalapeno, minced
1 Tbl finely chopped cilantro (or more to taste)
Juice of 1 lime
Salt & Pepper to taste
4-4oz Drum Filets
4 Tbl Island Coconut Blend
Combine all ingredients and allow to sit for about 10 minutes. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper.
Season the drum on both sides with salt and rub with the Island Coconut Blend. Heat Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Saute the drum until the flesh begins to turn white and the fish starts to feel firm to the touch--about four minutes. Turn the fish and reduce the heat to low. Continue cooking the fish until completely done--about four minutes.
Serve the drum with the Peach Salsa. For the salsa, Mango or Papaya would be great in place of the peach. Or a combo of the three fruits would fantastic!
