    Seduction meals curry Salmon Recipe

    Curry Salmon. Mmmmm! For me, whenever I am cooking for curry lovers this dish is always a hit. A friend of mine taught me this recipe years ago (thank you Virginia!) and its one of my favorite preparations for salmon. I made this last night for a romantic dinner for two served with snow peas and rice, and a bottle of champagne.

    The sparkly bubbles compliment the salmon with its mild spicy curry flavor. Of course if you like it spicy you can add a bit more heat with the cayenne pepper (or you can use jalapeno pepper). I say this meal will knock his socks off because its one of those dishes that once you serve it, people will always ask for it when they come over. I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we did.

    Presentation Tip: As you can see we have presented two ways to present this dish, salmon and rice with 2 lime slices and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro (or you can use parsley). The second version can include your favorite green vegetable - we like green beans or sugar peas, and we garnished the dish with fresh thyme.

    Curry Salmon 


    • 1 lb boneless salmon
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 shallots, finely chopped
    • 3 cloves of crush garlic
    • a pinch of cayenne pepper, or 1/2 teaspoon chopped jalapeño pepper
 for more heat
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
    • 3 tablespoons of curry (be sure it is fresh for the best flavor)
    • 1 pint of light cream (or Half & Half which has less cream)
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 box of Near East rice pilaf, original mix


    1. Prepare the rice as per the range top directions.
    2. Salmon: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic, stirring until soft.
    3. Add cayenne pepper, salt and tomatoes.
    4. Stir ingredients; cooking for about 2-3 minutes.
    5. Add curry powder and cream, stir until well blended.
    6. Add two – three salmon pieces, skin down.
    7. Spoon the mixture over the salmon. There should be enough sauce to come at least 1/2 of the way up the sides of the salmon.
    8. Lower the heat to medium-low and cover tightly. Let simmer for 7 – 10 minutes or until salmon is cook to your liking. Test with a fork
    9. Spoon mixture over the salmon from time to time.
