Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove 1 cup of the cream that has risen to the top of the chilled coconut milk and add to a large skillet or wok. Bring to a boil and cook for 5-8 minutes until the oil begins to separate from the white solids. Add curry paste and continue to cook for another 5-8 minutes. Add some thin coconut milk a little at a time if the mixture begins to stick.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the thin coconut milk remaining in the can the cream was removed from with ½ cup of well stirred milk from the second can. Reserve the remaining milk from the second can for a later use. Add ½ cup of water.
  3. Add salmon pieces to the skillet with the curry paste and coconut cream. Stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the remaining thin coconut milk and let simmer, turning occasionally until the salmon is cooked through.
  4. Stir in fish sauce, brown sugar, limejuice, and red pepper slices, mushrooms, fresh basil and simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Serve hot over rice.

I have made Thai green curry many many times before following different recipes and I can safely say that this one does not yield a good result! It calls for way too much fish sauce and possibly too much curry paste too. I would advice you to try another recipe!

Everyone enjoyed, including the 80 year olds present! :-) I added 2" fresh minced ginger and quadrupled the brown sugar. After stirring in the fish sauce, I worried the curry would be too salty (I used lightly smoked salmon -- it was salty enough), but the boiled potatoes and stir-fried eggplant I added took care of that. YUM! Thanks!

I made this dish last evening for 4 adults; all of us had previously eaten green curry salmon. I followed the recipe exactly -- except I added about 3/4 tsp. red paper flakes to spice it up just a bit. I made 6 cups of cooked jasmine rice. We all loved the dish and wouldn't change anything about the recipe. The four of us ate all but one small "leftover" serving!
