Salmon Red Curry

salmon-fish-curry-1343

Tender salmon steaks swimming in a pool of spicy red curry sauce! This is a dish I make a lot and its very easy which is why, when people ask for the recipe I say it’s ” very simple” , almost too simple to describe. But I thought putting it on a recipe card is not a bad idea so I can give it to people who ask.  You can use salmon fillet or steaks. I prefer steaks coz I always like fish with bone.  Anyway, you make a red curry sauce by blending some ingredients together and just simmer the fish in the sauce till it gets cooked.  Top it with some cilantro and pour it over some basmati or get some chapatti and wipe the plate clean.  It a good holiday dish seeing it’s red and green :)!  I didn’t get great pictures of it last time I made it but I promise to take a nice picture of it poured over rice the next time I make it and update this post so you can see what it looks like close up! Hope you enjoy the recipe! It’s a family favorite! From my kitchen to yours.

Nutrition Wise: Salmon is a great source of omega 3 and DHA which are the brain building foods.  It also  had a good amount of Vitamin D and B12.  Healthy fats combined with strong anti-inflammatory properties make it a super food.

Christmas is almost here and my home is not decorated. My oldest was the one who got everyone excited and busy around the holidays and with her away at her first year in college,  no one wants to decorate until she gets home which is not until the 21st so we will be late. It’s also a little dreary without her during the holidays and I’m not sure how am going to  feel when the second child goes off too. I will probably be hitting my head and wondering  why I didn’t have that third child :)!

Anyway to all my readers have a great and joyous Christmas season! Do all you can to spread some happiness, peace and cheer. Whatever you’re doing, do it well! Whether you have this talent to express your thoughts  into beautiful, unique creations that can speak or you have the ability to take real life situations and make them newsworthy making people think, laugh or just  heartwarming stories that tug at your heart strings or you’re taking indefinite time off social media to just spend time with your family and the real world or you’re this beautiful, strong, grounded  woman who keeps things real for her man and young kids or like me, you just like to give anyone unsolicited nutrition advise, cook up a storm and invite people over to enjoy it! ( I am pretty much a harmless, non-violent foodie type :)do it with a passion and give it your all! Wish you much success and ‘all the best’  in your endeavors and projects everyone and if you stopped by to read my post and give me more page views which I like you are awesome :)!
