Salmon with Creamy Coconut Ginger Sauce over rice

The whole name of this dish is Salmon with Creamy Coconut Ginger Sauce over Coconut, Cilantro, Lime Rice. The title wouldn't let me put all that in there. I am not big on salmon but this sauce makes the dish. I love to use this sauce over shrimp also. It's so good.
