Salmon Curry with Summer Vegetables


About once a week I scan the refrigerator for a creative outlet.

I like to cook, and I often don’t follow any recipes.

Finding odds and ends that need to be used up is a fun activity for me. It must be like an artist with a canvas and all the paint. Or a potter with a new block of clay.

All the possibilities lay in front of them.

This curry can be that for you, too!

I pretty much grabbed whatever vegetables I had, thawed the salmon, mixed some curry paste (leftover) with coconut milk… and voila, a dish that’s actually worth sharing with your friends!

You can completely omit the salmon, or substitute with another protein.
