Classic Thai flavors of lime and lemongrass are blended together with coconut milk to make a delicious sauce that tastes amazing with a fresh baked piece of salmon.
Finely chop the lemongrass then add to a saucepan along with the ginger, garlic, curry powder, Sriracha and oil. Heating this mixture for a few minutes is all it takes to bring out the spices fragrant aromas, making the flavor of the sauce that much more intense.
Whisk in the coconut/cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil until slightly thickened. Remove from heat, and stir in the cilantro, lime juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with grilled or poached salmon steaks.
