Hands up who loves curry 🙋

I think it’s definitely one of our favourites in this house and we love it any which way. It’s one of those things, like pizza, that can be perfect in so many different forms.

Whether it’s a greasy take away which amounts to thousands of calories and sleepily collapsing on the sofa after eating or a fresh, healthy and relatively light version like this salmon curry. They all have their places and if you’ve got it in your head that curry can only be an occasional treat then think again!

Why we love this salmon curry:

  • First off this curry is so healthy while still being full of flavour this it’s become one of my favourite things to make on a weeknight when I want some thing light for dinner
  • It’s also naturally gluten free so it’s great for feeding people with different food requirements
  • This curry is easy to make your own by switching out the vegetables for other options, Kale would be great in place of the spinach or some cauliflower or broccoli would go great in there as well

This version has a lovely tomatoey sauce which is full of curry flavour and coats your salmon and spinach perfectly.

Then you’ve got the spinach which is one of my favourite curry ingredients and of course the salmon which is full of like omega 3 or whatever good stuff.

Add extra vegetables if you like, I’ve kept it pretty simple here but pretty much anything would work!

Did everyone have a good weekend? It’s was our first weekend together in a few weeks because Will’s been away quite a bit so we had a very chilled one.

We went to a local farmer’s market on Saturday as a reward for going to the dentist (grim) and we bought some steaks to make my steak sandwiches with chimichurri so watch out for new photos coming soon!

Then on Sunday we just stayed in and got various household activities done including organising our food cupboards and making a spread sheet of everything we have (yes, we are that cool).

    I’m raising both hands right now because I love curry so much! I’ve actually always been curious about how it would taste with salmon because I’ve never tried it or seen it at a restaurant. This looks so delicious!
