Pan Roasted Yellow Curry Salmon

Summer time is when we eat lighter and seafood becomes a larger part of our summer meals.  This summer, I’m making a commitment to cooking more fish.  I’m not a big fish eater, but I do enjoy salmon when cooked well.  I prefer my salmon smoked and on bagels, but if I encounter an interesting way of cooking it, I like to try it out.  I came up with this recipe on my own as I was trying to bring some Asian flavors to the table.  The Pan Roasted Yellow Curry Salmon is great with a side of rice or a veggie stir fry, but you could even add it to a salad.  I was amazed by how tasty my Pan Roasted Yellow Curry Salmon turned out.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
