Red Curry Salmon (serves 4)

2 very fresh salmon fillets

Red Thai curry paste

1 can of coconut milk


Rub the salmon all over thoroughly with the curry paste. Allow to sit about half an hour, long enough for the curry flavor to infuse the fish and for the fish to come to room temperature.

Bring the coconut milk to a simmer in a pan large enough to hold the fillets. Slip the fish into the coconut milk, cover, and turn off the heat. Allow the fish to poach in the hot liquid just until the fillets are cooked through in the center. This should take about ten minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets.

While the fish is poaching, stir-fry a finely diced clove of garlic and a finely diced tablespoon of ginger in a tablespoon of peanut oil. When the spices release their fragrance, add sugar snap peas and stir-fry for another thirty seconds to a minute, just until the sugar snaps turn a little brighter green. They should be hot but still crisp.

Serve with hot steamed brown rice, drizzled liberally with the curry-infused coconut milk, and the sugar snap peas. Enjoy!
