  1. 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.
  2. 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.


I'm 41y/o wife and mother of 2. I've been a nurse for 20 years. We live in a small town in Arkansas. My passion is cooking. I love to cook anything and everything. Luckily my family is adventerous in their eating habits, so I have lots of fun trying new things out on them. I also like camping, traveling, gardening,water sports and collecting recipes. I like getting to know other people from other parts of the world. We have 5 pets, 2 dogs and 3 ferrets. My worst pet peeve is when people stick their nose up at a dish before trying it, because they know a certain ingredient is in it. I know everyone has different tastes, but picky eaters just don't know what they are missing when they turn down a dish they havent even tried.
