Quick.....Thai Curried Salmon for dinner!

Dinner sometimes consists of what has been stashed in the freezer and in the bottom of the crisper drawer in the fridge, usually something that doesn't look like a science experiment!. Last night about 6:00, I realized a teenager was hungry! But I was in middle of making Biscotti and talking on the phone at the same time.....you know this was a stretch for me, multi-tasking! My dad always told me I couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time!

Throwing in a third task (dinner prep) is just something us mothers do.....I opened the freezer and pulled out a couple of salmon filets. I had a recipe I've been wanting to try and decided tonight is the night!



A little saute'd shallot, a wine reduction, throw in some red curry paste with some coconut milk....fish sauce and lime juice......you know the drill, salty, sweet, sour and spicy and a Thai Salmon en Papillotes was born. Throw in a little brown rice to score brownie points with my trainer and thinly sliced Mange Tout for that vegetable point on the Food Pyramid!
Tasty! Served up on a Gien plate.......even better!

Melissa, I'm sure you're much better than me doing multi-tasking :) the curry looks delish!

Keiko, One look at your blog and great photos and one can tell you are a real mult-tasker!
Thanks!

Looks delicious! I do a lot of curry and a lot of salmon, but never the twain meet. This one goes in my "recipes to try" file...
