Salmon Coconut Curry

© 2024 |

© 2024 |

This easy salmon coconut curry has tender succulent pan-seared salmon fillets in a creamy curry coconut milk gravy. It's nutritious, delicious and super flavourful. A perfectly healthy and delicious weeknight dinner that everyone will love! You can serve with a side of brown rice, flat bread or sourdough bread. Make this as mild or spicy as you desire and experiment with different vegetables - green beans and eggplants are excellent too.

  • 4x150 g Salmon fillets
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Mild (or hot) curry powder, divided
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked paprika
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Ghee
  • 250 g Vegetables (onion, bell pepper and fencel), thinly sliced
  • 1 Large garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 tsp Ginger, minced
  • 1/400ml Full-fat coconut milk, well-shaken
  • 1 tbsp Chives, chopped, to garnish
  1. Pat the salmon fillets dry with a paper towel. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 tbsp curry powder, garlic powder, and smoked paprika. Season with salt and pepper. Stir the spices together until fully combine. Drizzle olive oil over the salmon and sprinkle the spice blend over the fillets. Use your hands to rub the spice blend into the salmon until evenly coated. Set aside.
  2. Melt half of the ghee in a large non stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once the ghee is and melted and hot, gently lower the salmon fillets, skin side down, into the skillet. Let the salmon sear for 3 minutes, then flip over and cook n until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Carefully tranfer the salmon fillets onto a clean plate while you prepare the sauce.
  3. Heat remaining ghee in over medium heat. Sprinkle in the remaining 1 tablespoon of curry powder. Cook the curry in the ghee, stirring frequently, until the curry is fragrant. Add in thinly sliced vegetables, cook for about 5 minutes until softened. Now add in the minced garlic and ginger and cook until the mixture is fragrant and well combined, about 2 minutes.
  4. Pour in the coconut milk and stir everything together to combine. Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer. Then add the salmon fillets back into the skillet along with any residual juices. Spoon some of the sauce over the salmon and continue cooking for another 1 minute or so. Then remove from heat. Serve this salmon curry immediately alongside your favourite side dishes.

Salmon coconut curry looks very tempting and delicious 😋

Lola Martínez 20/1/24 15:16

Para mi el curry siempre es con leche de coco, nunca pongo nata como he visto en otras recetas. Al salmón le va muy bien esta preparación, es una excelente comida que pienso hacer el algún momento.

I did put some curry in my millet with red lentils and garlic today, but I am jealous of those chives you have in your lovely photo setting, I have not seen them in many a month. But I did buy some nice fresh scallions today for my usual morning tomato salad with oat omelette.

This easy curry sounds like a flavor fiesta in a skillet, Angie! The combination of tender salmon, creamy coconut milk gravy, and warm spices like curry powder, paprika, and ginger is mouthwatering

When I saw this on Instagram, I immediately put it on our menu for the coming week. I’m very excited to try this, as we love salmon, and any kind of coconut curry. I can’t wait. David (C&L)
