Inspired by Africa…a spicy salmon stew!

I was browsing my cookbooks when I stumbled over a recipe I never ever noticed before but probably flipped by a hundred times. Lately I have been in the mood of using (for me) different spices and today I found two new recipes that is inspired by Africa…here is the first one

1 pounds/500 grams Salmon

1/2 pound/250 grams prawns

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 yellow onion

4 minced garlic cloves

1 yellow bell pepper

1 yellow squash

1 zucchini

1 sweet potato

4 whole cloves

1/2 tablespoon cumin seeds

1/2 tablespoon curry

1 teaspoon turmeric

1 teaspoon chili flakes or less

3-4 chopped tomatoes

1 can coconut milk

1 lime juice

salt and black pepper

Greek yogurt

How to: Chop the onion and the garlic and cut the vegetables into smaller pieces and fry them in the vegetable oil together with the spices for a few minutes before adding the coconut milk and the tomatoes. Let it simmer for 15 minutes, add the salmon and let it simmer for a few minutes until the salmon is done. Add the prawns and as soon as they are warm serve the stew with a splash of greek yogurt.

It was a little bit too much chili and way to spicy for the kids, next time I will leave out altogether and sprinkle it over the individual plates instead. My kids don’t like sweet potatoes so I made some rice as a side dish.
