  1. In a large pot over medium heat, add olive oil. Combine carrots, potatoes, and Romanesco. Season with salt and pepper and cook for about 10 minutes until vegetables begin to soften.
  2. Add scallions, ginger, garlic, and curry paste. Stir to combine. Cook, stirring for about 2 minutes until aromatic. Take care not to burn the spices.
  3. Add coconut milk and 3 quarts water. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 10 minutes.
  4. Add salmon and cook for another 10 minutes, until salmon is fully cooked and vegetables are soft.  Serve immediately.

Chef Tips

Romanesco is a pale green, rather extraterrestrial looking cousin of cauliflower. You often see it in farmers’ markets in the late summer and fall. If you can’t easily find it, sub in white or orange cauliflower.

If you have to open a 14 oz can of coconut milk to make this, freeze the rest in a ziplock for another use.
