1 tablespoon coconut oil

7 Bizarre Beauty Treatments You Won't Believe Are Real

    Tasty recipe, thanks for sharing. I made it with chicken instead of salmon. However, my limes must have been too large because the 4 I juiced were waay too strong of a flavor (and I love lime juice). Would be helpful to note how many tbsp of fresh lime juice instead of the # of limes, since size/juice can vary so much.
