In this climate, cold delicacies go down very well. This salmon dish is a cool and most refreshing entree. It is also one of the easiest dishes you will ever make, the hardest part is making the honey dew melon balls. If you do not possess a melon baller, then you can always make nice scoops with a large spoon. If the worst comes to the worst, cut it in slices! You can make this dish a few hours before the guests arrive and keep it in the refrigerator, but apply the coconut cream and garnish just before serving.
