 Ingredients - Serves 4

½ teaspoon Salt

¼ teaspoon Pepper

1 package Uncles Ben’s Pre-cooked White Rice

1 tablespoon Sunflower Oil

2 tablespoons Green Thai Curry Paste

4 cups Coconut Milk

2 stalks Lemongrass, chopped into ¼ inch pieces

½ cup Kale, tough ribs removed, chopped

1 inch piece Ginger, peeled and grated

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

4 Verlasso Salmon filets (5 oz. each) [or other salmon brand of your liking]

1 lime

Cilantro, for garnish

Thai Chili slices, optional for garnish


  1. Heat sunflower oil in a large skillet at medium heat. Add the curry paste, stirring for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.

Lower heat to medium-low. Add coconut milk, lemongrass, kale, ginger, and garlic. Stir until evenly distributed. Let simmer.

  1. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add the Extra Virgin Olive Oil to coat the base. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Add the salmon to the pan, skin-side down, and cook for 5 minutes. Flip and cook for another 5 minutes. (For well-done salmon, cover the pan and continue cooking for 2 minutes.)
  2. Cook rice according to package.
  3. Serve the dish in a bowl- with the rice on the bottom, the salmon nestled on top, and the curry ladled over. Garnish with a squeeze of lime, cilantro, and Thai chilis for extra spice!
