I spent a small foodie fortune on salmon this past weekend and even though I was a little hesitant to break out my credit card, because who in their right mind spends $28 per pound on fish?

Hand sheepishly raised.  me…

I couldn’t help it.  I wanted fresh fish and went straight to the source, a local fish market.  We live in Monterey where seafood is a fresh as it gets, so it would be a shame to pick up fish from a national grocery store when we have access to wild caught local salmon!

The grocery stores get plenty of our business.

My favorite fish market is Sea Harvest .  Right when you walk in the shop there is a large glass display showing off the fisherman’s catch.  They also run a quaint restaurant, which is quite popular as I noticed there was a waiting time to be seated.

Nothing on the menu compares to this Baked Salmon Coconut Red Curry Sauce though!

Yeah, I’m feeling brave with my comparison, but I’m not joking, this dish is amazing, packed with flavor, and is ready in under 30 minutes!

    Loving this recipe and your salmon is perfectly cooked. It is seasonally odd at the moment with rain, dampness and cool and curry is just what you need. Keep the low carb recipes coming. We love it! Sharing of course.

    I am always looking for new pairings with salmon. I totally love red curry and the fish will totally hold up to this bold flavor.
