Spiced Roasted Salmon in Coconut Curry ( For My Dad) #SundaySupper

My sunday supper team is a doing a Dad’s Day special this week.  Special recipes that remind you of dad ! My dad turns 75 this year on July 3, 2012 and although I won’t be at his party celebrating, will be him in heart. Ah ! Living  8000 plus miles away is not easy. There are so many recipes that remind me of my dad but my favorite is ” Fish Curry ”  Growing up in India I have fond memories of sitting perched on a washing stone in our backyard watching my dad clean fresh live fish !  As a child it was a fascinating experience to watch the gills being snapped off,  head being cleaned and the scales being scraped off. Then sitting down to a meal of fresh cooked fish was the ultimate dinning experience. This dish is typically made with king fish, but since it’s a little difficult to get it here I used salmon steaks instead. You can use any fish really. First you smear the fish with some spices and then gently pan roast it on both sides. The purpose of doing this is to ensure that it does not break apart when you cook  it in the curry . It also enhances the flavor of the fish. Then you make a curry with spices and coconut milk and gently toss the fish into the curry and simmer till you get a decadent delish dish that can be served over rice or eaten with any kind of bread ! Hope you like the recipe ! Enjoy !

    YUM! I just so happen to have a bunch of salmon that I'm looking to prepare in different way! This looks amazing!!!

  4. This sounds really good. I am a bit of a fish newby and trying to incorporate more fish dishes into my repertoire. Are ginger paste and garlic paste something you can make by grinding ginger and garlic yourself, or are these some of the items that you need to get from a specialty store?

    • Thanks ! You can get ginger garlic paste at any Indian, Asian market, but you can also make them by blending together ginger and garlic with a little vinegar. I like homemade coz it tastes better and the you can add spices like chilli etc for the home made ones.

  5. What a beautiful, delicious tribute to your father today. I love the flavors in this dish, and I've been craving salmon lately. Would love to try this dish!
