YUM! Very nice flavor combination. I removed the cooked salmon from the pan, then tossed the cooked noodles and scallions in the pan drippings to warm them. Garnish with lime wedges and chopped peanuts. A wonderful change from the standard grilled or poached salmon. Thank you for posting this recipe.

Very nice spice combination and it adhered to the salmon quite well. I had my doubts about being able to finish the salmon without burning the curry but it wasn't a problem at all. I would suggest you remove the salmon from the skillet and then saute the scallions - makes the presentation of scattered scallions easier to create. Nice salmon entree, Kymmarie.
