Personally, once I saw this recipe in my plate, I though: AAAAAAAHHH, there is no vegetables in there!!! 🙁 So, if you want to cook this recipe at home, don’t hesitate to add diced zucchini, carrots, mushrooms or bamboo shots.

I’m lucky to have a stepmother who looooves cooking. One day, she brought me a handy kitchen tool. I use it whenever I need to grated garlic or ginger. It’s like a small ceramic plate on which there is small spikes. And when you grate your garlic on it, it reduce on a “puree” shredded. Hahaha, I don’t really know hot to explain it to you, but see the result on the picture below:

It’s perfect to integrate it into the sauce. Here is the basis to star the recipe: a little bit of coconut milk, green curry paste, grated ginger, sliced onion (onion isn’t on the picture below) and lime juice. I can tell you that it’s already smells very nice in my kitchen.

Start by slowly heat these 5 ingredients together and combine well. Then, add salt and pepper before pouring the rest of coconut milk. At the same time, cook some thai rice. At this moment, my stomach starts to rumble, it’s smell really good in there.

When your mixture shredded, keep this temperature and and slides salmon in it. It will cook in the coconut milk and become smooth.

While the salmon and rice are cooking, you can already wash the cilantro and keep only the leaves. They will serve not only to bring more taste to the recipe but also to decorate the plate.
