Easy Coconut-Salmon Curry Recipe

You say, Indian Curry, I say Thai Curry. Either way, this easy weeknight recipe is a must try.That little exchange is the argument between my two girls. They both love this coconut salmon curry, so making it has become second nature to me. Whenever I’m trying to win some mom points from the kids, I head to the store buy some fresh or frozen wild- caught Alaska salmon and whip this recipe up. If you’re using fresh salmon, you can have dinner ready in less than 30 minutes. When you’ve hungry kids breathing down your neck, quick and easy dinner does the trick. A little bit of fish knowledge here, did you know that all Alaska salmon are wild? Yes, they are and all wild-caught Alaska salmon includes king, sockeye, coho, keta, and pink. Of course for this recipe, I used sockeye but I bet any of those choices would work as well.

I am obsessed with super quick and easy meals. With two school-aged children, the only way to have a cooked meal during the week is because it’s easy. I understand, easy is relative but truly this is pretty straight forward. Besides, cooking with Alaska seafood is easy, healthy and delicious.

Easy Coconut-Salmon Curry ingredients
This weeknight recipe of coconut salmon curry is a family favorite. So if you want curry in a hurry, give this try. They like it because it has coconut milk which gives it a sweet taste, the curry gives it some color, and for good measure, I added cayenne pepper. Don’t worry the flavors didn’t overpower the salmon. To cut down on time, I didn’t sear the fish, I just added it directly into the curry sauce but if you like the skin crunch, then I will suggest searing it for a few minutes before adding it to the pot.

They were frozen and precut, so it was good for portion control.  If you are looking for them, they should be in the frozen section of your local grocery store. If you want to use fresh ones, ask the fishmonger, for wild-caught Alaska salmon, make sure you specify or else they will give you the wrong thing.
