Our Favorite Way To Serve It Up

For an easy and impressive dinner, we love to enjoy this salmon family style, served with pieces of toasted naan bread, and herby yogurt sauce and pickled cucumbers.


Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and add salmon, skin side-down. Using a sharp knife, score salmon diagonally.

In a small bowl, whisk juice of 1 lime (ab 2-3 tbsp.), red curry paste and brown sugar. Brush salmon with 1/3 sauce and bake 10 minutes. Turn oven to broil, remove salmon and baste with more sauce. Return to oven and broil for 5-7 minutes additional, basting with any remaining sauce, until salmon has developed a slight char and is cooked to desired level of doneness.

Gently slide a spatula between the skin and flesh of salmon and transfer to serving dish. Top with scallions and serve with lime wedges.
