Steamed in its own juices, this salmon is incredibly tender. Curry adds a punch of flavor that's perfectly balanced by onion and tomato. —Merideth Berkovich, The Dalles, Oregon

"I used a 2 lb. fillet so I doubled the recipe.

I did use a small amount of butter on top of the salmon but otherwise followed the directions as written.
The fish came out tender and absolutely delicious!
I will definitely make it again. The whole family loved it."

"This is just so easy and quick and the fish is incredibly moist, the curry, tomatoes and onions taste so good with the fish. I made it for company and they loved it also. I used cherry tomatoes and used more spices and it was delicious! one of my favorites for sure!"

"I wasn't sure about curry fish, but this was excellent!!! I followed the except for the tomatoes. I had canned diced tomatoes, which are not the same as fresh, but they were so good! The tomatoes and onions soaked up the curry flavor and were so yummy! I would suggest doing this with a thinner piece of fish. We did it on the grill and will definitely be doing it again! SO GOOD!"

"I have now tried this recipe twice and I love it! The first time, I had fresh salmon and put it out on the grill. The second time, I tried halibut steaks, cherry tomatoes instead of sliced tomatoes, added asparagus and mushrooms to the veggies, and cooked it in the oven at 400 for 30 minutes. The steaks came out delicious, the halibut was flaky and tender, and the seasoning was perfect! I love this!"

"I DO NOT like salmon. For years I have reluctantly tried to find recipes that I could stomach just so that my family would get the health benefits of the Omega 3's. I have found a couple recipes that tasted alright, but were not the healthiest ingredients or methods of preparation. But now my search is over because this recipe is so delicious. Granted, my kids did not at all like the smell of the curry, but the flavor is not too strong and the combination of the spices was amazing! I used frozen fillets from Wegmans (no skin & packaged individually for easy single servings! Sold in 2 lb. bags) I cooked all 2 lbs. (6 pieces of fillet) and made 1 1/2 times the amount of seasoning called for in the recipe. I cooked it for 20 minutes in the foil in the oven at 350 and it turned out perfect! The tomatoes, the onions, ummmmmmm. Everyone raved about it. This is the absolute perfect salmon for me! Now I LOVE salmon! I recommend this recipe to everyone!"
