Salmon gets an Asian vibe in this curry dish. Lightened coconut milk keeps the calorie count in check, and watercress adds texture, color, and lots of vitamin A.
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 cup thinly sliced onion
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 cup light coconut milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon bottled minced ginger
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon chile paste with garlic
1 (8-ounce) bottle clam juice
1 (1-pound) salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
6 cups trimmed watercress (about 2 bunches)
How to Make It
Heat vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and curry powder; sauté 4 minutes. Add coconut milk and the next 7 ingredients (coconut milk through clam juice). Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Add fish; cover and cook 4 minutes. Arrange watercress evenly over fish; cover and cook 4 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
