Easy Thai Salmon Curry.

I have no idea why there are no Fish Curry recipes on my site as yet and this easy salmon curry will probably open the floodgates.

This recipe definitely falls into the curry in a hurry category! My timings say 20 minutes but in reality, once you are familiar with the recipe it is closer to 15.

Most important it packs much more flavour than that short cooking time would indicate.

The hot, sour, sweet and salty flavours closely associated with Thai food is really a great love of mine. I use them in everything from my Thai chicken salad through to my Thai Chicken Stir Fry.

As with most of my recipes, this pays no nod to authenticity whatsoever. These are flavours I love with ingredients from my store cupboard!

At the heart of this recipe is a Thai red curry paste, make sure you spend wisely. This is where the majority of your flavour comes from!

How Do You Make Thai Red Curry Paste?

Now you can, of course, use a jar of Thai red curry paste for this Thai salmon curry recipe. In fact, I kind of assume that the majority of people will.

But I am sure that there are a few of you out there like me… If you are intrigued making Thai Red Curry paste at home is really easy.

I have a full recipe and methodology over in my Thai Duck Curry Recipe.

But in essence, it is nothing more than a group of ingredients blitzed into a paste. The core of those ingredients are dried chili, lemongrass, shallot, garlic, ginger and if you can get it dried shrimp paste.

Can you store Thai Red Curry Paste I hear you say! Well yes, of course with the caveat that it will not store as long as a store bought paste.

Simple cover with oil and it will save for 2-3 weeks in the fridge. But if you freeze it then it will keep for a few months.

Quick Fish Dinner Recipes.

As much as I love spending time in the kitchen sometimes quick dinners are a necessity! As far as I am concerned when I need a quick dinner I look no further than fish.

Fresh fish fillets like this simple salmon curry recipe, my seared tuna steak or pan-fried cod with peas are all wonderful. They are all fridge to table in less than 30 minutes, but they do all require a bit of planning.

If you have no time to plan then frozen shrimp offer a quick meal solution in the same amount of time and require little to no forethought.

They are great in stir fries, but also make a great fish curry and also really brighten up a hot and sour soup!

Then you can go the whole convenience hog and rock canned or smoked fish… Seriously these are great ingredients, whether in my smoked mackerel pasta recipe or canned mackerel fish cakes.

Fish is a great addition to any diet and is seriously nowhere near as difficult to cook as most people think!
