Green Thai Fish Curry

But first, what we had for dinner!

It was just a simple ol’ green Thai fish curry with rice. It was made as follows (serves 2): Put three handfuls of rice into a medium pot. Cover by a finger-joint depth of hot tap water. Put on the stove on high.
Take a wide frypan, and add about a teaspoon of peanut oil. Put on medium-high heat. Once it has warmed up; add a heaped teaspoon of green curry paste. Stir it around to distribute.
Chop up two smallish fillets of fish (Terakihi in our case) into biggish chunks, and add to the curry paste. Once the fish has browned off a little, add a small can of coconut cream; and simmer gently until the rice finishes cooking, adding additional water if required. Pile rice into bowls, and top off with curry.

Mmm. Yummy and delicious!

Cured Salmon

Here’s a picture of some salmon (Ooh, and the method I used) I cured on Sunday. The colour of the photo is suprisingly close to the actual colour of the salmon – it was extremely bright.

Oh so very red.

This is salmon, which I cured.

The cure was made from…
Zest of 2 limes
Zest of 1 lemon
1/4 cup sea salt
2 tablespoons of sugar

The zest of the lemons and limes was chopped up extremely finely; then mixed with the sugar and salt. I then rubbed the cure over the salmon; then wrapped it in foil and a zip-top baggie and left it in the fridge with a bit of weight on top. After a couple hours, I took the salmon out and patted it dry.
Yesterday, it ended up getting smoked; which was awesome.
