Salmon in Coconut-Curry Sauce
For this simple skillet dinner, we borrowed from “In Bibi’s Kitchen” by Hawa Hassan. Instead of mackerel, we use salmon fillets and pair them with a saucy mix of vegetables simmered in coconut milk. A small measure of curry powder, a stand-in for the Somali spice blend called xawaash, flavors the dish and gives the sauce a pale golden hue. Serve with steamed rice.
6-ounce center-cut salmon fillets
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
01Season the salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the salmon flesh side down, then immediately reduce to medium. Cook, undisturbed, until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Using a wide, thin spatula, transfer the salmon browned-side up to a plate.

Saw this pop up and wanted to make it, as I am always looking for salmon recipes. Husband was iffy as he really enjoys curry, but not a big salmon fan. This recipe won him over, he really liked it served over rice. I adjusted the curry up and removed the seeds from the jalapenos as it is our taste, it was really good. He even asked for it to be a repeat dinner item.
Easy night recipe without flavor - can't taste the curry at all.
