Thai Red Curry Salmon & Broccolini – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I am always trying to create new salmon recipes so my family stays interested in eating this wonderful fish.  Searing or broiling salmon to create a crunchy exterior is always a good technique, especially for the picky fish-eaters because it gives it a nice crust and adding a smart sauce to the fish is a nice way to create flavor, and attract all kinds of people to your table.

Good Thai food is one of those things that I think is hard to find, even in a big city like mine.  The best Thai cuisine is usually in Thai Town and that’s a big haul across the city to enjoy some authentic food.  My recommendation is to make your own right at home and this recipe is a great place to start.

Thai curry is much different than Indian curry.  For starters, Thai curry is a little hotter, but can be tamed by coconut milk like in this recipe.  Also, Thai curry doesn’t way down food as much as Indian curry sometimes does – it perks it up with an aromatic taste.  While you can prepare your own Red Thai Curry Paste, I recommend you buy it at your local grocery store because it makes it simple, and the flavor blend is nice.

This dish is truly a crowd pleaser and super simple to prepare.  You’ll have them lapping it up in minutes and I think your salmon will never taste as good as it does tonight – my family would agree.
