15-Minute Creamy Coconut Curry Poached Salmon Recipe Is Tasty Healthy Eating

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.

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. This salmon in a coconut curry broth is ready in less than 20 minutes. This seafood recipe makes two servings but could easily be doubled.
