I love to share recipes with friends especially when I know it is a guaranteed winner and easy to prepare. Recently I shared the never fail, packed with flavour, oh so easy to prepare meal One Pot Salmon Coconut Curry Pasta (credit and thanks to The Culinary Tribune) with my dear friend and colleague, Marlene. I hadn't heard back from her and forgot about it until I saw her post on Facebook.
Apparently it was a huge hit in the Caicco home! According to Marlene she doubled the recipe but it was quickly devoured. The picture above is what she posted on Facebook. This is prior to cooking it. Apparently she was asked by many for the recipe. It was just the nudge I needed to get it up here for even more people to enjoy. Here's the recipe...
One Pot Salmon Coconut Curry Pasta
12 ounces linguine
3 cups water
1 can coconut milk
2 vegetable stock cubes
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 Onion sliced
8 mini orange and red peppers sliced
15 grape tomatoes cut in half
0.8 pound salmon *See below for special note
2~3 tablespoons Indian curry paste
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 bay leaf
a bunch of parsley
a bunch of cilantro
1 tablespoon sugar
Place all ingredients in a pot. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 17 minutes, stirring a few times. Cook until pasta is al dente. Season with salt and pepper.
NOTE: I've made this dish with the salmon as per the original recipe and it's good, but my preference is to cook the salmon separately and add the cooked salmon at the end. This way the salmon doesn't overpower the flavours. (Hint: use your microwave for perfectly cooked and moist salmon, simply add salmon to a microwavable glass baking dish, add water until it reaches about 1/4 of the way up the pan, if you are cooking a piece of salmon that fills an 8 by 8 in pan, it will take between 5 and 7 minutes to cook on high).
All things cooking, from simple and clean to gourmet and exotic (and everything in between) have been my passion for over 30 years. Since discovering Pinterest, I pretty much exclusively cook from the recipes I PIN. My saying is, "if you can PIN it, you can cook it". I love to PIN recipes and I love to cook. I thought, why not blog the recipes I make from my Pinterest food boards. I'm the self-declared, Pincook.
