Green Thai Curry Salmon
Green Thai Curry is the most unique to our other curry blends, with bright flavors from ginger, lemongrass, and Makrut lime leaves. This bold + refreshing curry powder blends beautifully with coconut milk + fresh herbs. To help the powder dissolve evenly into the sauce, I first made a paste with oil + water. By taking the time to cook the paste, sear the salmon + brown the veg on their own, before simmering it all together, you really enrich the complexity of the dish. I chose veggies based on what I had available, feel free to swap in your favorites.
