Thai Salmon Stew
- 2 cups (1 can) low-fat coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste
- Lime zest from 2 limes, finely grated
- Juice from 2 limes
- 2 teaspoons fish sauce
- 3 teaspoons dark brown sugar
- 1 pound skinless salmon fillet, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 cups lightly packed baby spinach
- 1 cup basil leaves, rolled tightly and cut into thin slices
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Have 2 medium or 1 large rimmed baking sheet prepared.
- Combine all of the chopped vegetables in a large mixing bowl, toss with oil, garlic, chili powder and smoked paprika. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Spread the vegetables in a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast for approximately 30 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes. When the vegetables are tender, remove from oven.
- At this point, the vegetables can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.
- Pour 1/2 cup coconut milk into a medium skillet over medium heat. Whisk in the red curry paste until thoroughly blended, then stir in the remaining coconut milk, lime zest and juice, fish sauce and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
- Add the salmon and smokey vegetables, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes. Stir, then add the spinach and cook for 2-3 more minutes until the salmon is cooked through.
- Stir in the basil and remove from the heat. Spoon the hot stew over rice, barley or other grain.
- Serve with additional lime wedges.
