Last time, we talked about which fish to eat and which to avoid because of mercury and acidity levels in various types of fish.
So today, I’ve got a delicious recipe using one of the best types of fish you can eat, wild-caught Pacific or Alaskan salmon. This is a special treat today in the Get Off Your Acid Blog, because this is the FIRST time ever I am posting a recipe that involves animal protein!
This curry dish is equally tasty without any animal protein, so you can certainly skip the salmon altogether and enjoy a highly alkaline dinner, but if you like to eat animal protein now and then, this is a great way to do it. Salmon is high in Omega 3 fatty acids, low in mercury, and mildly alkaline.
Plus, this recipe combines some of the best veggies at the farmer’s markets right now – in season asparagus, peas, and greens.
Salmon and Spring Vegetable Curry
3 tbsp. coconut oil
8-12 oz. of wild-caught Pacific or Alaskan salmon
1 onion, peeled and diced
1 tbsp. curry powder
2 carrots, peeled and diced
½ cup snow peas
1 bunch asparagus
2 cups garbanzo beans, cooked or canned
1 15oz can of unsweetened coconut milk (I recommend Native Forest brand)
4 cups vegetable broth
2 bunches of any type of greens, washed and cut (kale, bok choy, escarole, collards, turnip greens, etc.)
Sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt) and pepper to taste
Fresh cilantro for garnish
Sauté the salmon in 1 tbsp. coconut oil and set aside once cooked to your preferred doneness.
Meanwhile, in a large pot heat 2 tbsp. coconut oil and sauté onions and curry spices until the onions are soft (about 6 to 8 minutes). Add the vegetables, beans, and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer and add the vegetable broth. Simmer until the veggies are tender (about 15 minutes). Add the greens, then season with salt and pepper.
Serve with quinoa if you would like. Garnish with cilantro.
