Salmon Curry (canned)

Salmon is such a healthy protein because it's full of Omega-3 fats that are good for your heart.  Unfortunately, it can be expensive. I don't like to buy fresh farmed salmon because it does not have the same health benefits so wild salmon is best and that's even more expensive.  The most economical way to get wild salmon is in the can.  I think it's marvelous.  I adapted my mother's canned Mackerel Curry (will be posted soon) with this canned Salmon.  You can eat this with any rice and curry meal, kiri bath (see my recipes), flat breads etc...  It's a spicy and delicious way to get your Omega-3 at a very cost effective way.

1 (15oz) can of Wild Salmon (with canning juices)
1 medium onion chopped or sliced
1 small green bell pepper chopped (optional)
2-3 green chilies chopped (optional)
10-15 curry leaves
2 cloves if garlic grated
1 inch of ginger grated
1 (1inch piece) cinnamon stick
1 pandan leaf (optional)
1 tsp fennugreek seeds
1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
1/2 tsp turmeric
1-2 Tbs red chili powder (to taste)
1 cup water
1 cup milk (coconut or cow)
salt and black pepper to taste

In a large pan, heat 1Tbs of canola oil.  When hot add cinnamon stick, curry leaves, pandan leaf, fenugreek seeds and saute for 30 seconds.  Then add the onions, garlic, green chilies and tomatoes and bell peppers.

Add the chili powder, salt, black pepper and turmeric next.  Add the canned salmon with the canning juices and water. Simmer for 10-15 minutes without breaking up the salmon fillets. Finish with milk and taste for seasoning. Enjoy.

  12. I actually didn't know there is a huge can of fish like this! And it's salmon? Now that's a plus! We can always store it in our pantry in case of missing fish in the fridge or freezer. I love this recipe and thanks for sharing it with us!

  13. Lovely salmon curry! BTW, we sometimes make the traditional meen kulambu with salmon, the trick is to lightly fry the salmon pieces before adding to the gravy. Try that sometime! :)

  14. Set the bud of salmon to the stove and start off the procedure for placing the elements from the bud. When all of the ingredients with seasoning of salmon come from the pot match it with water to within approximately an inch or two of the top, flip the cooker on high heat allow it to come to a boil. If it is inclined to boil , cut on back the heat before it has to do with a boil however, not overflowing the top of the pot. Do not provide for the bud.Here you came to know best way to cook salmon on stove,with stunning ingredients
