Slow Cooker Coconut Curry with Baked Salmon

Slow Cooker Coconut Curry with Baked Salmon

Today's Tidbit:  I love my Slow Cooker and so I am always happy when I come up with something new and easy and delicious to make in it.  Who has extra energy at the end of the day to cook?  Not me!  Coconut Curry seemed like the type of dish that could easily be made in the Slow Cooker, so I tried it out; it was a success!  

You may already  know how amazing Salmon is for our health.  If not, or if you need a refresher, here is a great overview of this "Superfood":  

Here is my simple, yet healthy & satisfying recipe:

Slow Cooker Coconut Curry with Baked Salmon Recipe:

Into Slow Cooker put:

1 tbsp Canola oil
3 large Garlic Cloves, thinly sliced
1 tsp Curry Powder

1 tsp Ginger Powder
1/2 Onion, diced
2 Yukon Gold Potatoes, diced (yes, I left the skins on)
20 Baby Carrots, chopped in half
4oz container Fire Roasted Diced Green Chilis
1 cup Light Coconut Milk
1 cup Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth  

Mix ingredients and cover.  Cook on Low Heat for 6-8 hours.  When ready to eat spray Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon Fillet with Canola Oil and season with Salt.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes, flake with fork and add to Curry Dish!


*Last year I created the What Amy Ate Today blog to share my personal story of losing over 40 pounds by making simple healthy changes to the way I was eating and to show the real life picture of what my daily food choices looked like simply by posting every single thing that I ate for 9 straight months!  I wanted to show that it is possible to lose weight and be healthy without being on a diet and without starving or depriving yourself of anything.  I make healthy choices whenever I can, but I am a normal person living a real life and I want to enjoy it, so I indulge in special treats regularly too.   
It has been a great journey for me, further motivating me to seek out new foods, new recipes and new ways to prepare and eat more healthily and get more Vitamins and Nutrients (and Energy!)  into my day.   I look forward to continuing this journey by highlighting special recipes, new foods and/ or preparations that I discover or create, alongside any helpful Health information or news that I come across through the above "Today's Tidbit".  Thanks for joining me on my journey to better health and better living!
