Creamy Coconut Curry Salmon Recipe Is Healthy Eating In 15 Minutes

Poaching is a quick and healthy way to cook fish. The fish is submerged in a liquid then gently (very gently) simmered until it is cooked through. The result is a moist fish perfect for your healthy eating plan. Salmon is one fish that poaches particularly well.

This easy coconut curry poached salmon recipe packs a lot of flavor into the poaching liquid. Garlic, ginger, ground cumin, ground turmeric and ground coriander are cooked in a little olive oil until their flavors release. Vegetable broth and coconut milk are the liquids for the poaching broth, which are thickened with a little cornstarch. The salmon simmers in the broth until it is moist and flaky.

This salmon in a coconut curry broth is ready in less than 20 minutes. Serve this Thai-inspired poached salmon recipe over white rice, brown rice, quinoa or even rice noodles. Add a fresh vegetable like sautéed spinach, bok choy, snow peas, sugar snap peas, carrots or broccolini, and you have a quick dinner that you'll feel good about eating.

Recipe Notes

  • You have enough poaching broth to add more salmon without doubling the ingredients.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger, cumin, turmeric and coriander. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. 
  2. Add the broth, coconut milk and cornstarch. Whisk until smooth and bring to a simmer. 
  3. Put the salmon fillets into the pan, skin side down. Gently simmer for about 8 minutes or until salmon is just cooked through.
