Salmon has an incredible amount of nutrients like selenium, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins D, B12 and B6*. But if you don’t change it up, salmon can become a little routine – especially if you’re on the Mediterranean diet and are eating a lot of it.

If you’re bored of salmon, this recipe will change all that. Simply give it a curry rubdown, add a bright slaw, whip up a satisfying brown rice side, and ta-da! An exciting, easy-to-prepare recipe that not only tastes good, but is good for you.


  • 1​ cup brown basmati rice
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper​
  • 1​ pound Napa cabbage (1/2 head), thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1​ pound carrots, coarsely grated
  • 1​ /2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, plus lime wedges for serving
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil (note: substitute with olive oil for healthier option)
  • 4​ salmon filets (6 ounces each)
  • 2​ teaspoons curry powder 


  1. In a large saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil; add rice. Season with salt and pepper, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until tender, 30 to 35 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine cabbage, carrots, mint, lime juice, and oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss.

Heat broiler with rack set 4 inches from heat. About 10 minutes before rice is done cooking, place salmon on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Rub salmon with curry, and season with salt and pepper. Broil until just cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and serve alongside salad and salmon.
