Wild Alaska Salmon with Coconut Peanut Curry Vegetables

Wild Alaska Salmon with Coconut Peanut Curry Vegetables

If you know me, you know that I LOVE all things curry, peanut butter, and salmon - so this recipe was a long time coming. It is super simple with lots of thai flavors and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. The best part about this recipe is that you can prep for it ahead of time to make the cooking a lot easier for a weeknight meal. I love making the sauce in a mason jar and storing in the fridge and pre-cutting the vegetables to easily toss into the wok. This helps make cooking a little easier!

I paired this curry recipe with wild salmon! Specifically, Wild salmon sourced from Alaska. Alaska is home to a huge amount of wild salmon and the practices to ensure high quality and sustainably caught fish is huge. That’s super important to me. Wild salmon is also packed with anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids, high in protein, and tastes delicious!

Wild Alaska Salmon with Coconut Peanut Curry Vegetables

Ingredients:

Broiled Salmon:
 8 oz Filet of Wild Alaska Salmon (cut into two)
 2 tbsp Avocado Oil
 Sea Salt to Taste
Stir-Fried Vegetables:
 1 Large Sweet Onion
 1 Bell Pepper, Cubbed
 ½ cup Sweet Green Peas (Fresh or Frozen)
 1.50 cups Broccoli Florets (Fresh or Frozen)
 1 cup Zucchini Coins, Halved (About 1 Zucchini)
 1 tsp Minced Garlic
 3 tbsp Avocado Oil
Coconut Curry Peanut Sauce:
 1 Can Full Fat Coconut Milk
 ¼ cup Creamy Peanut Butter
 2 tbsp Coconut Aminos (or Fish Sauce or Soy Sauce)
 1 tbsp Curry Powder
 ½ Fresh Lime, Squeezed
 ½ tbsp Honey (Or coconut Sugar)
 ½ tsp Salt
 1 tsp Ginger Spice
 Dash of Cayenne (optional)
Optional:
 Rice noodles, minute rice, traditional rice. Here I used Jasmine 3 minute rice from Trader Joes.
 Lime wedge and chili flakes for serving.

Directions:

1

Preheat the oven to 375. I find it helps heat the oven up faster for broiling if it is pre-set.

Note - if you are cooking rice that is not a “minute” option, start that process first according to instructions on the package before you get started with everything else. If you are doing a “minute” option, wait to cook the rice until later.

2

Prepare the vegetables. Chop the onion, pepper, zucchini, broccoli and set aside. If you have frozen vegetables, set them aside too.

3

Prepare the sauce. Add all contents to the mason jar and shake well! I am talking VERY WELL. You want to make sure all the chunks get out. Start with the coconut milk, then peanut butter, honey, coconut aminos (or fish sauce), spices (cayenne pepper, ginger, salt) and fresh lime juice. Once shaken up, set aside.

4

Lay salmon filet on a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with avocado oil and sea salt. Set aside.

5

Heat up avocado oil in a wok or large skillet on medium-high. Let me heat for 1-2 minutes. Add in minced garlic and mix. Let cook for 30 seconds - 1 minute. Add in onions. Mix and let onions cook for 3-5 minutes. Add in remaining vegetables (raw and frozen) and toss evenly.

6

Pour all the sauce into the wok with the vegetables and mix. Cover and let cook for 5-7 minutes.

7

If you are adding a “minute” rice option. Cook that now. I used a 2 serving “3 minute Jasmine Rice” from Trader Joes.

8

Set the oven to broil. Once the curry and vegetables are cooking, place the salmon in the oven to broil. Broil for 5 minutes! That is all it needs if it is the thin Wild Alaska salmon. If you're using a large thicker filet, you may need to double the time or bake it for 5 minutes before broiling.

9

Everything should be ready right around the same time. Add rice to bowls, pour curry vegetables on top and then top with salmon. Serve with a lime wedge. Enjoy!
