Slow Roasted Salmon with Coconut Creamed Spinach

Did this up tonight - was rather different. Not for anyone who isnt fond of sweet glazes on their salmon. The creamed spinach could have been creamier...might be because i used reduced fat coconut milk rather than the regular stuff. Still, something different and exotic to try!

1 lbs sockeye salmon
1 Tbs brown sugar
2 tsp Thai green curry paste
2 tsp oil

10 oz spinach thoroughly cleaned
2 cloves garlic minced
5 kaffir lime leaves sliced into fine chiffonade
Canned coconut milk (just the cream off the top)
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp kosher salt (less if you use regular salt)

Put the oven rack in the middle position and preheat to 200 degrees F. Using tweezers, remove any pin bones from the salmon. Slice the salmon into 2-3 even pieces.

Mash the brown sugar, green curry paste and oil until smooth and spread all over the salmon. Place the fillets onto a baking sheet and put them in the oven. Bake until the thickest part registers 125 F on an instant read thermometer, about 20-30 minutes.

For the spinach, blanch in boiling water until just wilted then drain, rinse under cold water and wring out any excess liquid with your hands. Roughly chop the spinach.

Heat a saucepan over medium heat, add a splash of oil then fry the garlic until it turns brown. Add the kaffir lime leaves and fry for a few seconds.

Provided the can hasn’t been disturbed, there should be a thick layer of coconut cream on the top. Carefully open the can and skim the thick white cream off the top and add it to the pan, you should get about half a can of cream. Add the brown sugar and salt and stir to combine. Add the spinach into the pan to reheat.

To serve, spread a layer of creamed spinach down then top with a piece of slow roasted salmon.
