Bengali Salmon Curry

Serves 4
by Tenina Holder

This amazing fragrant curry is just such a pleasure to make because you are seriously eating this within half an hour of deciding to get your curry on! The choice of salmon is purely mine, think of using this same curry base for other fish of choice. Even scallops would be quite amazing. Serve up with all the usual suspect. Steamed rice, some yoghurt, plenty of coriander and go the whole hog and add some naan. You know you want to.
