Paleo Fish with Coconut-Shallot Sauce

- 3 large cloves garlic, chopped
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper, plus more to taste
- 1 1/4 pounds mahi-mahi, red snapper or grouper, skinned and cut     into 4 portions
-  2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
- 1 cup 'lite' coconut milk
- 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut chips, toasted
- lime wedges for serving

1. Position rack in upper third of oven. Preheat broiler to high. Line a baking sheet or broiler pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.

2. Mash garlic and 1/2 teaspoon salt on a cutting board with a fork to make a thick paste. Combine with 1 tablespoon oil, thyme and teaspoon pepper. Place the fish on the prepared pan and spread the paste on top of it.

3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring for 30 seconds. Add coconut milk, increase heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer. 

4. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until reduced to 3/4 cup (about 6 minutes). Season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste.

5. Meanwhile, broil the fish until just cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Spoon the sauce on top, sprinkle with coconut and serve with lime.

6. Enjoy eating Paleo -friendly (makes 4 servings)!
