I love anything curry. My family we eat curry about 3-4 times a month. You need coconut milk in your curry it just make this dish magical creamy with a hint of sweetness. For this curry salmon dish I use yellow curry. For this recipe I used yellow curry. Yellow curry is the mildest out of the curries. Accompanied with coconut milk this curry has a rich taste with sweet and mild flavors. The pan-seared salmon in a creamy yellow curry coconut milk sauce. It's flavorful and comforting! This curry salmon with turmeric quinoa or rice to soak to soak up all that yummy curry broth.
