Traditional mayo is full of toxic fats and should absolutely be avoided at all costs. However, I highly recommend a good quality avocado oil mayo like we are using in this recipe.
Feel free to use whatever fish you have available that you enjoy. I recommend getting the highest quality, wild-caught fish and my personal favorite is salmon. You could always use white fish, tuna, trout, etc. However, salmon has the most anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and anti-oxidants so it is the best for your health.
Dr Jockers Comments
This coconut fish recipe is a tasty main course you can have with vegetable side dishes for a wonderful meal. The curry and coriander provide powerful polyphenolic anti-oxidants that reduce inflammation and improve your digestive health.
I make this with some great wild-caught salmon that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and astaxanthin which act to support a healthy heart, brain and reduce pain and inflammation throughout the body. The lemon helps activate your digestive juice production so you can produce the stomach acid, bile and pancreatic enzymes to digest the meal well. Additionally, lemon is rich in vitamin C and bioflavonoids that improve blood flow and oxygen delivery to our tissues.
