Rich, savory, creamy, and sweet, this weeknight salmon masterpiece has it all!

As the weather gets colder once again, I find myself searching for hearty, warming recipes that are deliciously filling, but aren’t as heavy as pasta. With coconut milk, ginger, and red curry paste, this delectable salmon dish is the perfect blend of sweet and heat. And, not only is it satisfyingly flavorful, but it feels like a warm hug on chilly winter days.

An ideal weeknight dinner made stovetop, this salmon and veggie dish is rich in flavor but not spicy. Coconut milk adds a creamy sweetness to the red curry, while garlic, shallot, and ginger warm up the sauce. Paired with broccoli and mushrooms, this dinner showstopper is as nutritious as it is delicious. Your whole family will love it!
