Salmon is the most eaten thing in our house, apart from vegetables. We love it and I have adapted many recipes to include it, so I am happy it is in season. I’m starting off the recipes with a one pan meal that is ready in under 30 minutes. Something that I know you lot love. Thai curry paste is super simple to recreate at home and only takes a few minutes to whizz up in a food processor. This is a great meal to adapt, I swap greens seasonally and love to include squash and pumpkin in the autumn. Purple sprouting broccoli, pak choi and kale are all great at the moment. I also love to include crunchy pea pods from the garden when I can.
If you dislike coriander, this one isn’t for you. I know a lot of you absolutely despise coriander. It makes me laugh so much when I get messages saying it’s the Devil herb haha. The good thing about salmon is that it cooks quickly. A pan with a lid is ideal for this recipe, as it will steam cook in ten minutes. I have a chicken version here if you’d like that recipe too.
