Salmon with Coconut Thai Curry Sauce

We are trying to add a bit more fresh fish to our meal plan.  I love salmon, actually I’m  happy to have it simply seasoned with salt and pepper, but when I made this meal I thought some curry sauce would team together nicely with the rice and vegetables.  It was very tasty!
