Low Carb Salmon Thai Red Curry
This low carb Thai curry is packed with aromatic herbs and spices, creamy coconut and omega 3 rich salmon. The curry paste is made from scratch and requires the use of a good food processor! The curry is served over a portion of cauliflower rice but would be just as delicious with courgette noodles.
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 anchovy fillets
- 2 salmon skinless and roughly diced
- 2 tsp lime juice
- 2.5 cm fresh ginger peeled
- 1 clove garlic peeled
- 100 g cauliflower rice

- ½ small red bell pepper sliced
- ½ stalk lemongrass roughly chopped

- To prepare the curry paste, add the ginger, garlic, lemongrass, chilli, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, ground cumin, ground coriander, lime juice, black pepper, anchovy fillets and one tablespoon of the coconut milk to a food processor.
- Blend to combine forming a thick paste.
- Heat the remaining coconut oil in a large pan or casserole dish over a medium heat. Add the onion and sweat until tender.
