Stir together the lime zest, orange zest, coconut oil, and a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Coat the salmon with the mixture and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 mins. Place the cabbage in a bowl and drizzle with the dressing. Toss lightly. Set the slaw aside. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish and cook for 5 minutes. Flip the fillet and cook until the fish flakes easily, about 5 minutes. Cut into 5 portions and serve each on a bed of the slaw.
