Two of our favourite meals are pasta (or gnocchi) and curries. This recipe fuses the two together and produces a full flavoured yet easy to make dish. Gnocchi and pastas are essentially carriers of flavour in that they require a sauce to bring them alive. So what better to partner gnocchi with than a creamy coconut curry sauce? Along with the poached salmon and kick of chilli this recipe produces a very vibrant dish.
If you like your spiciness then be sure to add a scattering of fresh sliced chilli at the end, otherwise the dish sits at around a medium heat level. Also be careful not to overcook the salmon – keep an eye on it as it poaches, even a minute or two too long and it will head towards being dry.
If you’re feeling creative then you can make your own gnocchi but often you get results just as good with the shop bought variety. Another bonus with gnocchi is that it only takes a few minutes to cook and once they start floating to the top you know they’re ready.
