Salmon Coconut Curry (Whole 30)

by | Nov 2, 2018 | Recipes, Whole30


Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes | Serves 3-4


This Whole30-friendly curry is hearty, flavorful, and incorporates one of my favorite proteins – salmon! It is inspired by a recent meal kit from Plated. My husband and I usually get a meal box subscription once a week and it just makes dinner so easy. It also provides great recipe inspiration for when you’re in the kitchen yourself. This is definitely one of those recipes to keep and make your own!
