This is really outstanding. Although there were only the two of us I used the full recipe so we had heaps of sauce. I was going to cut the recipe in half but I am so glad I didn't it was so good. I used coconut flavoured skim evaporated milk because I had to cut the fat content for DH. I have basil growing but I only managed to get a few small leaves off it. We have salmon a couple of times a week at least and I am always looking for new way to have it. Thanks so much for a really great sauce Oolala I will be keeping this one.
This was really easy and really good. I grilled the salmon with a simple olive oil and salt and pepper coating (as suggested) that I let marinate for an hour or so and served it over rice. If you don't like spicy, I'd go to 3/4 teaspoon or even 1/2 teaspoon for the curry paste. But if you like spicy food, 1 teaspoon is nice and hot.
My new favorite Recipezaar recipe! I couldn't stop raving about this when Troy made it for me. Will make again! Very dinner party-worthy!
Super good but I had to add 1 tbs of curry paste and 1 tsp of fish sauce to make it taste more like what I'm used to (more tasty).
YUM!!!! This is awesome! Perfect as written, wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for posting this winner!
This is very, very good and very easy to make. I roasted the salmon in the oven and made the sauce while it cooked. I did add toasted coconut as a garnish and served with jasmine rice.
We didn't use the sauce for salmon but instead had it over some Thai-style pre-crumbed chicken schnitzels. Dave doubled the sauce and used a green curry paste instead of red. Very delicious, just love the boost of flavour the basil gave it. If you wanted too you could easily added a couple of drops of fish sauce at the end. Exactally the sauce we were looking for.
It didn't thrill me, but it was OK. I see it as a good base for something that could be improved upon.
