Citrus and curry make a splendid sweet, sour hot and sassy flavor note for the ubiquitous salmon. Remember to buy only wild caught salmon, never farm raised. Choose the curry powder of your choice. For me, I like a hot and spicy version. But there are as many choices as there are places in the world where this spice blend finds a home.
