I made this for the first time ages ago but forgot all about posting the recipe and picture until my Twitter friend Amanda was looking for nice ways to cook up salmon. This one is very tasty and a lovely alternative to simply grilling the salmon. Also the kids loved it as they are rice mad and I was able to just add some yoghurt to their bowls to tone down the curried flavour.
The recipe is very simple so don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients. It really a very simple recipe – and it taste just like my favourite Salmon dish from our local Indian – for about a third of the price!!
This is a Hairy Biker’s Recipe – from their really excellent Mum Knows Best season – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00x84dj and those fellas really know their stuff.
