If you enjoy Thai food as much as we do, you just might end up adding this to your permanent “go-to” recipe pile. Filled with a cornucopia of incredible flavors such as ginger, garlic, lime juice, basil, and red pepper, this skillet will amaze your dinner guests as each bite takes them to a different place on this flavorful journey.
Salmon is one of our favorite dishes: packed with zest, healthy fats, and healthy micronutrients, you can’t go wrong with this kind of fish on a low-carb diet. Its unique flavor also allows you to get all of the benefits of eating fish while avoiding that typical “fishy” taste many people dislike.
This centerpiece is complemented by the savoury spice that curry brings to the table, creating a dish that will make a delicious impact on your taste buds. Coconut milk is used to thicken the skillet, providing a creamy depth that’s impossible to achieve with a thinner base. Pair this with a steaming serving of fresh cauliflower rice, and you might be tempted to make this several days in a row!
