Salmon with Nigerian Peanut Sauce

Who needs to be in Nigeria to enjoy this scrumptious Salmon.  If you love peanut butter, then you would definetly enjoy this dish. Even my picky eaters who dislike peanuts, ate this.  The fish is just cooked till it flakes but still slightly pink. This dish is served with rice.


4 skinless salmon fillets
1/2 tsp garlic and herb seasoning
1/2 tsp thyme

1 red pepper

Ground Nut Sauce

1 tsp canola oil
1/2 red onion
1/2 tsp curry powder
black pepper
2 tsp fresh garlic, minced
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 firm roma tomatoes


Heat oil in a stove top pot at medium.  Finely chop onions, adding to the pot as you cut.  Saute until translucent and just slightly brown.  Add pepper, curry powder, garlic, peanut butter and broth.  Chop tomatoes and add to the pot.

Meanwhile spray a nonstick fry pan with cooking spray and heat at medium heat.  Season salmon on both sides and saute about 3 minutes per side. Remove from heat, cover and let rest.

Sliver red pepper, adding to ground nut sauce as you cut.  Taste seasonings.  Drizzle the ground nut sauce on the fish.

Serve with rice and salad.
