Salmon and Vegetable Curry

Healthy Salmon Curry

This is a quick, easy to make delicious meal that even my fish-fussy kids adore. My daughter has become progressively fish fussy as she’s got older. Where she would happily eat all seafood, including slurping back a slimy oyster as a toddler, she now balks at a plain piece of grilled fish. It’s funny because I remember disliking anything fishy as a teenager too, so I can kind of sympathise.

But instead of no longer serving fish to cater to her fussiness, we’ve worked together to find ways of serving it that she enjoys, and this Salmon Curry is now my whole families favourite way to eat fish. You can certainly make it with any firm white fish, however there’s something about the oiliness of the salmon that sits particularly well with the spices in this mild curry.

It literally takes 15 minutes to prepare and cook so it’s a win win all round.

Health benefits
The beautiful warming spices in this curry are supportive to the digestive system and are lovely anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant herbs. This is one very nourishing meal.


1 tbsp butter, ghee or coconut oil
1 small onion, peeled & diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp minced ginger
2 roma tomatoes, diced
1 teaspoon cumin, ground
½ teaspoon coriander, ground
½ teaspoon turmeric powder
½ teaspoon black pepper
Chilli flakes (to taste)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1½ cups coconut milk
500g (approx.) skinless salmon fillet, cut into 2cm cubes (approx.)
1 red capsicum, sliced
Handful green beans, trimmed and halved
Handful coriander leaves, chopped to serve


  1. In a pan over medium heat, heat the butter or ghee. Add onions, garlic, ginger and cook until starting to soften but not brown.
  2. Add tomatoes, cumin, coriander, turmeric, black pepper, chill flakes and sea salt and cook for about 1 to 2 mins until fragrant.
  3. Add the coconut milk and bring to a simmer for 2-3 mins.
  4. Add fish, capsicum and beans and cook for about 3 to 5 mins or until cooked through.
  5. Serve with steamed rice or cauliflower rice.
  6. Garnish with coriander leaves.

You can substitute the salmon for a firm white fish too.

Substitute the fish with temple, tofu or just extra vegetables.

    Made this last night for dinner and it was delicious!! And so easy! I used snapper, as that was all I had but am looking forward to trying it with salmon!

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

“You have truly helped me and my family to lead a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been referring to your page every few days, very inspiring, so thank you!” Emily

This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
