What makes this quick and easy salmon dish distinctively delicious is the combination of curry and salt, which also gives the salmon a warm golden glow!

Go light on the curry so as not to overpower the dish… it should be subtle. Done right, this mix makes an excellent seasoning for any pan-roasted fish.

If you prefer or need a lower-sodium preparation, just go easy on the salt, or use a substitute product featuring potassium chloride or lactate.

Serve this dish with a favorite vegetable on the side... sauteed spinach or green beans sauteed with mustard seed would work well.
