Green Salmon Curry

This is a lovely quick and simple curry which is both tasty and filling. The tamarind gives it a really nice, different sweet/sour flavour which distinguishes it from many other curry tastes.

The recipe set out below includes potatoes instead of rice as the sauce soaks beautifully into the potatoes. If you fancy rice instead, omit the potatoes (and don’t forget to amend the number of points) and pop the rice on to cook as the sauce begins to simmer. When you omit the potatoes the sauce is 4sp on BLUE, 9sp on GREEN and 4sp on PURPLE. You then just need to add the points for your rice.



Serves 4 = 6sp per serving on BLUE, 11sp on GREEN, 4sp on PURPLE

For the paste

Large bunch of fresh coriander, roughly chopped

3 cloves of garlic, peeled and roughly chopped

Thumb size piece ginger, grated

1 chilli, roughly chopped

4 spring onions, roughly chopped

For the curry

4 x 130g salmon fillets

A pinch salt

¼ tsp turmeric

400ml tin light coconut milk

1/2  tbsp tamarind paste

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp sugar

Pinch of crushed chillies

1 tsp cornflour

80g frozen peas

Handful of green beans, halved

Handful of spinach shredded

400g new potatoes, sliced and cooked


Pop your potatoes on the boil in salted water until almost cooked through (around 6-7 minutes).

Then begin the curry by making the paste.  Add all the paste ingredients to the blender with 50ml water and blend until smooth.

Next spray a large pan with 1kal and, once hot, add the paste then cook on a medium heat for a few minutes.

Next add the coconut milk, tamarind, ground coriander, sugar and crushed chillies and stir well. Add a little more water if you need to to make the curry nice and saucy, mine didn’t need much. Pop the cornflour in a small cup or bowl, add a tiny splash of cold water to make a thick paste and add to the pan. Stir and simmer the sauce for 5 minutes. Add the peas, green beans and cooked potatoes to the sauce and simmer for another 5 minutes.

Next season the fish with salt and pepper and rub in the turmeric. Pop the fish into the sauce with the  spinach. Cover and cook for 5-7 minutes until the salmon has cooked through. Finish with a twist of black pepper and squeeze in the juice of half a lime.

    Hi Laura,
    I made this last week and as a non Salmon fan I was really surprised at how much we enjoyed it.
    I think my memory of Salmon is that Tinned version I had as child so have always stayed away from it.
    This recipe was very satisfyingly filling and I loved the creaminess of the sauce. Would highly recommend others trying this.
    I am going to try other Salmon recipes as this is such a healthy option .
    Who knows I may become a permanent Salmon convert. Thank you Laura x
