The inspiration for this Indian Spiced Salmon in a Curry Sauce is leftovers.  Maybe, instead of calling it leftovers, I should call it re-purposing.  A very important learning to make your life easier in the kitchen is to make extra.  Now this idea is focused on those recipes you make using sauces.  As I write this post, I am remembering that I have seen on TV and from fellow bloggers, that they would make large quantities of a sauce, put in a serving size jars or containers and freeze it until the next use.

Indian Spiced Salmon

I cook so often, I rarely need to freeze the extra.  I simply put it in plain view in my fridge and the visual is my reminder that the sauce is there for my next recipe idea.  As is the case with this Indian inspired salmon dish, the extra curry sauce was right in front of me when I opened the fridge.  What could I do different than the EASY CHICKEN CURRY RECIPE I originally used the sauce for?  How about I try it with seafood.  I did not google or loop up any recipe to create this dish.  I called on experience to create a spice blend that would both flavor the salmon and blacken it some during cooking.

One other learning that this Indian Spiced Salmon over a Curry Sauce demonstrates is the importance of color and texture.  When I am thinking up recipes, I am frequently thinking about how the dish will be plated.  In this recipe, I pictured the salmon on top of rice on top of the sauce.  A good take away from the plating of this dish is how I plated the rice.  To develop the height in my layers, I packed the rice into a ramekin and pressed it down firmly.  The sauce was ladled into the bowl followed by turning the ramekin over and encouraging the rice and finished by laying the salmon over the rice.  (If you are unfamiliar with, or get challenged by cooking salmon, here is a link to HOW TO COOK THE PERFECT SALMON).
