Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
A flavorful butter mixed with spices infuses both the vegetables and salmon with bold flavors in this Indian-inspired meal.
Smarts: Okra is a love-it or hate-it ingredient in our community of cooks. Roasting brings out a texture that may convert even those who think they don't like it, but feel free to use green beans or broccoli in its place.

  1. Heat oven to 450F / 232C.
  2. Toss okra with oil and spread onto a sheet pan. Season with cumin and curry powder (portions for the okra) and some salt. Roast for 20 minutes, shaking once midway through.
  3. When okra is about halfway through roasting, heat a skillet or non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add half the curry butter (reserve the other half) and then onions and carrots to melted butter. Saute until tender and golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside and return pan to medium heat.
  4. Add remaining half of curry butter and then salmon to melted butter. Sear for 2 minutes. Flip over and sear for an additional 2 minutes. Pour in enough stock to shallowly cover the bottom of the pan. Cover with lid, lower heat, and simmer fish for another 3 to 5 minutes, until it flakes easily with a fork.
  5. Serve salmon with carrots and okra on the side. Squeeze lime wedges over the entire dish. Enjoy!
