Having a stock of staple items in your pantry and fridge is really key to inventing some amazing dishes on the fly without any recipe. We bought a huge slab of beautiful salmon yesterday. Half of the filet went on the top of the fire yesterday…what to do with the rest today? No clue! I started by cutting the filet into large cube chunks and figured I would pan sear it some how. I grabbed the coconut oil and heated up my skillet. Coconut oil….visions of salmon curry crossed my thick head.
- Wild Caught Salmon**
- Can of Organic Coconut Milk
- Fresh Cilantro
- Fresh chillies cut lengthwise
- Few dashes of Fish Sauce
- Curry Power (or Red Thai Curry Paste or whatever you have)
- Turmeric (worked well with the curry, probably not too traditional)
As the chunks of salmon were sizzlin’ I dumped on a good bit of the curry power and turmeric and put 5 or 6 dashes of the fish sauce, this is the salt for the dish, don’t use any more salt or soy.
Cook the fish FAST. I mean really fast, the inside should be rare. At that point dump in the coconut milk, the cilantro and the peppers. Heat it up to a boil and serve.
**Salmon facts you should know:
Wild Alaskan salmon, which spend most of their lives in open oceans, generally have very low levels of toxins, PCB levels and mercury. Coastal and farmed salmon, depending on the fish and meal they are fed, may have higher levels. The Environmental Defense Fund lists farmed Atlantic salmon as an “Eco-Worst” choice and recommends people eat no more than two servings a month due to high PCB levels. Remember, when you eat out, you more than likely are eating atlantic salmon. Be aware of what you are putting in your gut when you eat out!
