Roasted Salmon with Spicy Thai Coconut Red Curry Sauce

Roasted Salmon with Spicy Thai Coconut Red Curry Sauce

Yup, we’re here again. That time where we look at our calendars and think, “is it REALLY almost Rosh Hashanah? Where did this YEAR go?!” That’s what we’re all thinking, especially with the last year and a half in a total time warp.

Well, for this year’s Rosh Hashanah menu, I’ll be making Roasted Salmon with Spicy Thai Coconut Red Curry Sauce.

Not So Tradish

Wait, what? Thai Coconut Red Curry Sauce…for a the Jewish New Year?!

Okay, hear me out.

What are we all eating on Rosh Hashanah? Well, if my mom is reading this, then she’ll remember when I was 4 years old and I would reply, “Tzicken”! LOL Yup, that was back when I ate chicken!

But in reality, we’re devouring apples, honey, pomegranate, maybe some starfruit or dragonfruit – all the new fruits we can get our hands on. We’re consuming a lot of fruit and its sweet accompaniments. So, I made this Baked Salmon with Spicy Thai Coconut Red Curry Sauce dish to counter all of the honey and sweetness in our palates in our upcoming yom tov meals. And since honey and chilies pair so well together, it felt like a match made in heaven.

It’s okay to lick your bowl

I first created this recipe several months ago just out of a craving of something spicy, with my red curry powder from The Spice House and creamy coconut milk. Plus adding in some salmon for protein and tomatoes and green beans makes this a complete dish.

What developed that day was a sauce that was truly irresistible and fulfilled every craving. For real. Ask my husband. He’ll tell you that he’s seen me lick my bowl clean. The sauce is so versatile, you can make it to go on just about everything – it would be delish with some roasted or grilled veggies! And I served it with some fish patties for a Shabbat appetizer that were a bit hit! I’ve even dipped tortilla chips in it (it’s no joke how much I love it). My sister-in-law’s mother immediately asked me how I made this, after I shared a “preview” in our family WhatsApp group. And like usual I just made up the recipe, so I needed to finally write something down. This is for you, Levana!!

So I finally wrote down the recipe, albeit with a few tweaks because I KNOW I’m making this again and again and again. Because it’s THAT good. It’s so warm and satisfying. Perfectly spicy, creamy and tangy from the lemongrass and a perfect dish to make on a cool autumn night.

Though it may not be your traditional Rosh Hashanah appetizer, I say “why not”? Why not “spice” (with Thai chilies?) things up and add some flavorful traditions to your yom tov seder meals. Who says you can’t have delicious food at any holiday meal?

Wishing you all a Shana Tova! Here’s to a happy and healthy New Year!

Roasted Salmon with Spicy Thai Coconut Red Curry Sauce
Course: Fish
Cuisine: Thai
Servings: 4 people
Author: Rachel Katzman
Ingredients
  • 2-3 Garlic cloves, diced
  • 1-2 Thai Chiles, finely diced I like things HOT, so sometimes I use 3-4 chilies, because I'm crazy. Feel free to remove as many of the seeds as possible to reduce the heat
  • 1 tsp Red Curry Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1 15 oz. can Coconut Milk (full fat, NOT the light version)
  • 1/2 Stalk of lemongrass, finely diced (or zest and juice of half a lemon) Remove the outer tough layers, take a chef's knife and pound the lemongrass to release the oils and finely dice the mid-section of the stalk. Feel free to use fresh lemon juice & zest instead
  • 1/2 tsp Tomato Paste I don't measure, I just do 1 big squeeze (from the tube), much easier than using a can
  • 2 4 oz. Salmon fillets Season with salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425F for the salmon. Meanwhile, start making the sauce

  2. In a large, deep skillet, add 1 tsp. of extra virgin olive oil and add the garlic, red curry powder, diced chilies and diced lemongrass (if using)

  3. Cook for about 1 minute on medium heat - be careful not to burn the garlic

  4. Add the canned coconut milk and tomato paste and whisk until smooth

  5. Season with salt and pepper and adjust as needed

  6. If you're not using lemongrass, add in the lemon juice here

  7. Add your cherry tomatoes and green beans (if using)

  8. Meanwhile, add salt and pepper to the salmon filets and bake the salmon at 425F for 10 minutes

  9. Cook on medium heat for about 5-6 minutes until the sauce has thickened

  10. Add your salmon to a big plate or bowl and top with the sauce, garnish with chopped cilantro or green onion and a squeeze of lemon!

Vegetarian Tom Kha Gai (Thai Coconut Soup)

Since Sukkot is just around the corner (yup, starts this Friday night), Daniel and I thought “why not a soup challenge”?

Well, you may not have asked, but we answered! I present to you, Vegetarian Tom Kha Gai (Thai Coconut Soup). This soup is total comfort in a bowl – warming aromatics, earthy, umami flavors and a perfect blend of spice and brightness of acidity. To be honest, any kind of hot soup is perfect for a chilly night in the Sukkah, but this one will warm your whole body with the bold spices.

Currently craving…

Maybe it’s because Daniel made his Thai basil chicken tacos recipe a few weeks ago but lately I’ve just been craving Thai food.¬† The kind of spice that isn’t too overpowering but you feel that heat develop with each bite. That’s what I’ve been wanting lately!

I had all of these ingredients at home already, so if you’re like me, you may only need to get a few extras. I stock up on coconut milk and coconut cream (mostly from Trader Joe’s) to use as a parve “cream” for soups, or desserts! And the fresh lime just takes it over the top with the perfect acidity punch. If you’re wondering where to find Thai red curry paste, I snagged some at The Spice House in Evanston. Note – be sure to check their Milwaukee catalog if you’d like to confirm what’s kosher.

And since it was tricky for me to find kosher Thai red curry paste, I made my own! It’s super easy to make with ingredients you probably already have. And for the fish sauce? I got the Red Boat certified kosher (OK) on Amazon, but if you don’t have it, you can substitute soy sauce, coconut aminos or Worcestershire sauce. if you use Worcestershire sauce, you’ll still get a good “funk” that’s needed, but not as much from soy sauce or coconut aminos, but it’ll still give a nice umami flavor. Feel free to top your soup with a drizzle of fish sauce along with sliced green onions, cilantro and squeeze of lime.

My twist on tradition (as usual)

This soup is traditionally made with chicken but I decided to omit it and make it parve. The mushrooms really give a nice meaty flavor and you don’t miss the meat at all, especially with SO much flavor! But if you prefer to make this a fleishig soup, use chicken broth and add in some chicken breasts when you add in the stock and coconut milk. You can also top this soup with more sliced chilies, if you want more of a PUNCH. Of course, if you DO use chicken for this recipe, make sure to substitute the fish sauce for soy sauce or coconut aminos, or if you can find fish-free Worcestershire sauce, by all means, do it!

Another part of the traditional recipe includes galangal (Thai ginger, but I used regular ginger) and Kefir lime leaves. You can get some dried online or you can find it in specialty stores, but using regular limes for this recipe is totally acceptable – that’s that’s what I did. ūüôā

When I made the soup to take photos, I basically inhaled 2 bowls of it. And no, I’m not ashamed of that!¬† It was incredibly satisfying and the perfect amount of heat. Shockingly, my husband Elliott actually tried it! Knowing that he hates mushrooms (or maybe he wasn’t sure what was in it), he didn’t hate it! That’s a win in my book – always.

Oh, and don’t judge my very obvious old and faded cutting board. I guess it’s time for a new one? ¬Į\_(„ÉĄ)_/¬Į

Chag Sameach everyone! May your Sukkot holiday be filled with good food and good company (for those who ARE having company over).

Ingredients
Thai Red Curry Paste
  • 1 tbsp. Red Curry Powder
  • 1 tbsp. Fish Sauce Or substitute soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Neutral Oil, like avocado oil
  • Squeeze of half a lime
Soup
  • 1 tbsp. Coconut oil
  • 1/2 large onion, diced Or 1 small-medium onion, diced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 Jalapeno, seeded (if you want less heat) and minced Or use a 3-4 Thai chilies, minced
  • 1 Inch piece of ginger, peeled and diced
  • 1 Lemongrass stalk Remove the tough outer stalks and cut off the root. Then pound it with a meat mallet or with the side of a knife and cut into 2-inch long pieces, this helps release the natural oils! If you can't find lemongrass, you can substitute lemon zest!
  • Red Thai Curry Paste See recipe above
  • 4 cups Vegetable stock Or use chicken stock if you're making this soup Fleishigs and not parve.
  • 4 cups Canned full-fat coconut milk About 2 cans' worth
  • 8 oz. mushroom caps Use any type you want, I happened to have a "fancy mix" on hand - baby bella and shiitake
  • 2-3 tbsp. Fresh lime juice
  • 2-3 Green onions, sliced thin on a diagonal Ya know, because they look pretty
  • 1 handful Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 Lime, for garnish and squeezing on top of your soup If you're like me and LOVE acidity, add more!
Instructions
  1. In a medium pot, heat the coconut oil over medium heat. I ended up using my Instant Pot since I can sauté right in the container and then switch to soup mode

  2. Add the onion, garlic, Thai chilies (or jalapeno, if using), ginger, lemongrass, mushrooms and red curry paste

  3. Stir for about 5 minutes or until onions and mushrooms are softened

  4. Add the vegetable broth and coconut milk and bring to a boil

  5. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Or, if you're cooking in your Instant Pot, press "soup" mode and cook for 30 minutes

  6. Once soup is ready, ladle into bowls and top with sliced green onion, fresh chopped cilantro and a big squeeze of fresh lime! Feel free to add a drizzle of fish sauce too, for an extra "funk"!

Spicy Thai Basil Chicken Tacos

Thai Chicken TacosWhy Thai

Rachel and I both started small container gardening this year. Both of us had limited success.  One thing that did grow well for both of us was basil.  We figures why not do a basil ingredient challenge as we both already had it on hand. I grew three types of basil, but my Thai sweet basil grew the largest by far. Although traditionally Spicy Thai Basil chicken is made with Thai holy basil, the Thai sweet basil works just fine, or you could even even use regular basil if that is all you can get your hands on.

Tasty Tacos

Traditionally this dish is served with rice, but I wanted to go in another direction.¬† Originally I thought about making this in to a noodle dish, but eventually settled on the what I believe to be the most universal of all dishes, the taco. In my opinion tacos are really the words greatest food. There really isn’t anything you can’t throw in a tortilla for a quick meal making is a great vehicle for my spicy Thai basil chicken.

Spicy Chicken

While the recipe calls Thai chilies, you can definitely substitute other chilies like serranos or jalapenos if that is what you have or leave the chilies out all together if you are not a fan of spicy food. Pro tip: if you want to cut the spice level of a chili pepper remove the ribs and seeds. Also, don’t forget to wear disposable gloves so your hands and eyes don’t burn.

Oyster sauce is a thick sweet brown sauce that will add some caramel notes to any dish. It is usually made by reducing the liquid from oysters, I use oyster mushrooms to preserve the moniker and give the dish an umami boost.

Thai One On: Drunken Noodles

Thai NoodlesDrunken Noodles

I know there is a propensity to add a boozy element to a dish and call it “drunken”, but drunken noodles, which to my knowledge is the original “drunken” dish, contains no alcohol. Rumor has it the dish received the drunken moniker due to the need to wash it down with a cold beer to tame the heat in it. A second theory is because it is a great for soaking up booze after a night of heavy drinking.

Many recipes for drunken noodles call for cherry tomatoes, which I loathe. Instead I added red bell peppers for some color and texture. Snow peas and bok choy were also added for some earthiness. Chicken is used in my version, but you could easily substitute tofu, seitan, or tempeh for a vegetarian version. If you leave out the eggs also, it can be vegan.

Oyster Sauce

Drunken noodles include oyster sauce for some sweet caramel notes and fish sauce for some funky flavor. Oyster sauce is made by reducing oyster juice with sugar and soy sauce to produce a thick sweet syrup. All real oyster sauces are inherently not kosher, as kosher prohibits eating any seafaring creatures that do not not have fins and scales. Of course if you don’t keep kosher then then don’t worry about it, and use off the shelf oyster sauce.

There are are some kosher mock oyster sauces out there, but they can be hard to find. I ended up making my own. I did use dried oyster mushrooms in my version to give the sauce a boost of umami, and to allow be to preserve the “oyster” alias.¬† The recipe for my mock oyster sauce is below, but you could always substitute hoisin sauce if need be.

Fish Sauce

Fish sauce is made simply by packing small fish such as anchovies in salt, letting them ferment, and then squeezing the liquid from the fish.  While kosher fish sauce is available, there is a prohibition in the world of kosher from mixing fish with terrestrial meats (such as beef, lamb, or goat) or poultry (such as chicken, duck, or turkey).  As I used chicken in my recipe, real fish sauce was out. So I made a mock fish sauce without any actual fish. You can make a kosher pescaterian version of this dish using tofu instead of chicken and definitely use fish sauce .  Again, if kosher is not something you worry about, then mix all the chicken and fish you want.

I used several fermented and salty products to mimic fish sauce’s funky flavor.¬† The recipe for my faux fish sauce is below. You can substitute (fish free if you want to keep it kosher) Worcestershire sauce for the fish sauce in a pinch.

Sriracha

I did attempt to make my own sriracha sauce, but just could not get a good balance between flavor and heat.  I will probably get back to it sometime in the future, but for now I used sriracha straight out of the bottle.

Despite the name this recipe does not have any alcohol in it.  As best I can tell, it is called drunken noodles either because all of  the spice in the recipe encourages you to drink to tame the heat, or possibly because it is a great dish to soak up the booze after a long night of drinking.

Fish sauce is a sauce used to add a little funk to a dish.  Fish sauce is usually made by fermenting small fish such as anchovies in salt and then pressing out the liquid from it. While kosher fish sauce is available, I chose to make my own vegan fish sauce as many people who eat strictly kosher do not mix fish with meat or fowl. To create the requisite funk I used a quartet of fermented products, some of which can be hard to find. For that reason, even though I usually shy away from recommending specific brands, I make an exception here. I ended up buying much of what I needed at Whole Foods, but most they can of course be found on Amazon.com.

Thai Chicken Won-tons With Peanut Dipping Sauce

Hey fellow food friends, welcome to Meat Your Vegetables. A safe food space for carnivores and herbivores alike. ¬†I am Daniel Peikes, by day I do something boring that no one understands for a bank, and on nights and weekend I like to play with my…food.

My partner in crime is Rachel. She is a pescatarian (which means she eats fish but not meat), but is sensitive to needs of all types of eaters. ¬†One of our¬†regular features will we an ingredient challenge, where one of us provides something for us both to cook with that is a little out of the other’s wheelhouse.

I came in to possession of copious ¬†amounts of slightly damaged chicken breast. ¬†They didn’t look very pretty but they tasted fine, so I figured this was the perfect occasion for me to challenge Rachel to a chicken throw down. ¬†I have been dying to play around with some Thai flavors and needed something that would hide the poor aesthetics of the chicken.
