    Use full-fat coconut milk here, it gives the sauce better consistency and mouth feel. You can thin it out to your liking from there depending on how you’re going to use it.It’s rich, but a little goes a long way. :)


    Spicy Lemon Coconut Sauce

    1 clove garlic, peeled
    1 medium jalapeno (or serrano) chile, deseeded and chopped
    1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, plus more to taste
    1 tablespoons sunflower oil
    1 small bunch of scallions, thinly sliced (~8 scallions)
    1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
    1 14-ounce can of coconut milk (full fat)
    3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus more to taste

    In a mortar and pestle, smash the garlic and chile into a paste along with the salt. Alternately, you can use a food processor. Add the oil and the scallions, and smash or chop a bit more. Add the cilantro, pulsing the food processor (if you’re using it) just a few times.

    Transfer the mixture to a jar or bowl, and whisk in the coconut milk, then the lemon juice. Taste, and adjust with more salt or lemon juice if needed. Store in a refrigerator for up to a week.

    Makes about 2 1/2 cups.

    Prep time: 5 min

    Then use one of these methods to soften them. (1) Lay them flat in the freezer and freeze them overnight, then run them under warm water to defrost. (2) Blanche them like Annemarie Gianni does in this video:


    Then use the collard leaves like tortillas to wrap your filling.
