We’ve simplified the ingredient list (but kept all the Indian flavors) for this slow cooker curry, which works well with halibut or salmon.

Ingredients

Canola oil

4 tsp

Madras curry powder

6 tsp, (2 Tbsp)

Uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, chopped

Mustard seed

1 Tbsp, brown

Garlic clove(s)

3 large clove(s), minced

Ginger root

1 Tbsp, grated peeled fresh

Green hot chile peppers

4 item(s), such as Thai, small size, seeded and minced

Canned tomato paste

1 Tbsp

Canned chicken broth

2 cup(s), or clam broth

Canned diced tomatoes

14½ oz, (1 can)

Uncooked carrot(s)

2 large, diced

Uncooked celery

2 rib(s), medium, diced

Kosher salt

1 tsp

Uncooked halibut fillet(s)

2 pound(s), or salmon, cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and mustard seeds and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is golden, about 8 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, and 3 chiles and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add curry powder and tomato paste and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute longer. Add broth and bring to boil, stirring to scrape up browned bits from bottom of pan.
  2. Transfer broth mixture to 5- or 6-quart slow cooker. Stir in tomatoes, carrots, celery, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and cook until vegetables are tender, 3–4 hours on High or 6–8 hours on Low.
  3. Sprinkle halibut with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add to slow cooker, stirring gently to coat fish with liquid. Cover and cook until fish is just opaque in center, about 20 minutes on Low. Ladle evenly into 6 bowls.
  4. Per serving: 1 1/2 cups

Notes

Naan, a tasty flatbread available in supermarkets, is the perfect add in (1 mini naan per serving will up the SmartPoints by 4).
