Slow-Roasted Curry Salmon

Would you believe that I didn’t even like salmon until about a year ago? I didn’t grow up eating a lot of seafood (basically none) so it has taken me a while to get used to it and enjoy the flavor.

When I was first trying to start eat salmon I did a bunch of reading on the best ways to cook it. There are a lot of opinions on this btw. I ran across one recipe that suggested roasting it at a really low temperature because it helps the fish stay tender and also doesn’t have a fishy smell while it is cooking. Since I was still struggling to like fish this was seriously the perfect solution for me

I gave it a try and was SO excited that my kitchen didn’t even smell like I had cooked fish and the salmon turned out perfectly cooked.

Over the past year I have adapted the method to create this recipe. I found that I still liked for the top of the salmon to be a little crispy so I started broiling it right at the end and it created a beautiful crust with a perfectly flaky center. I love to serve it over some of my Instant Pot Coconut Rice

I will say that I am no salmon expert and this method may not be for everyone but I highly recommend giving the slow roasting method a try! I also am that person who likes the salmon cooked through so if you want it undercooked just reduce the roasting time.

What are some of your favorite salmon recipes? I would love some more recipes!
