Sweet Potato Salmon Curry


    Sweet Potato Salmon Curry

    Serves 4


    Together, the sweet potato, buttery cashews and edamame provide texture and elevate this curry that seemingly only gets more flavourful after resting for a day. Lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and Thai basil are ways to make this dish scream Southeast Asian cuisine even more.

    2 tsp (10 ml) grapeseed or peanut oil
    2 shallots, chopped
    2 tsp (10 ml) finely chopped fresh ginger
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    3 tsp (15 ml) red curry paste
    1/4 tsp (1 ml) cinnamon
    1 cup (250 ml) reduced-salt chicken stock
    1 – 14 oz (400 ml) can light coconut milk
    1 1/2 Tbsp (30 ml) tomato paste
    2 tsp (10 ml) fish sauce
    1 lb (450 g) sweet potato (about 1 large potato), diced into 1/2 in (1.25 cm) cubes
    1 lb (450 g) boneless, skinless salmon, cubed
    1/3 cup (80 ml) unsalted cashews
    1 cup (250 ml) frozen shelled edamame
    Juice of 1/2 lime
    1/4 cup (60 ml) chopped coriander

    Heat oil in large frying pan over medium heat. Add shallots, ginger and garlic; cook 2 minutes, stirring often. Add curry paste and cinnamon; cook 30 seconds. Place chicken stock, coconut milk, tomato paste and fish sauce in frying pan and stir until curry and tomato paste are dissolved. Add sweet potato, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until potato is tender, about 20 minutes.

    Place salmon, cashews and edamame in frying pan and simmer for another 5 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through. Stir in lime juice.

    Place curry in serving bowls and garnish with coriander.

    Crab and Apple Stuffed Endive Boats

    Rich, tasty crab, sweet apple, licorice-scented tarragon, and a touch of lemon make these stuffed endives a classy crowd pleaser. The filling is easily prepared in advance and can be chilled until ready to serve, but this dish also comes together quickly enough to be done right before stuffing into leaves. Keeping your boats upright If you want the endive boats to sit neatly on the dish or platter without tipping, you can make a small slice at the bottom of each leaf before filling to give it a flat surface to rest on. Just make sure not to penetrate too deeply into the wall of the leaf.
