Thai Red Curry Salmon
My husband has been
buying salmon like crazy. I got tired of having it the same way almost every
time he prepared it, so I decided to switch it up a little and do it Thai
style.  Mind you, I woke up minutes to 6 in the morning to prepare this (maybe it was earlier).  We both like Thai food, so I was
confident it wasn’t going to be a disappointment.   I was right; my husband enjoyed it so much he asked me to make it again.  I wound up making this dish again the following evening for him to enjoy all by himself.  What a good wife am I, right?
