  2. Leave to gently simmer for 5 mins until the fish flakes easily and the beans are tender. Scatter with the coriander or basil, and serve with plain rice.

Quick & easy curry - fresh & subtle flavours, will cook again with variations on fish/ veg and add a bit more paste for personal preference

Simple, quick, and delicious! Added spring onion, ginger, garlic, lime leaves and peas. Will definitely serve this again.

i think the flavor of this dish heavily depends on the quality of the curry paste. I was trying a new brand, curry paste was quite liquidy and smelled of vinegar. when cooking i noticed bitter taste in the sauce, which i think was from my curry paste. overall, it was a lovely little curry, very simple and quick. will try again, but will change my curry brand first.

Easy to make and delicious! Did go a little watery when reheated so best to eat when first cooked. Yummy!

Used haricots verts instead of the thicker beans suggested. Delicious!

This recipe is absolutely delicious and super easy to make. I also added some spring onions, garlic and fresh ginger to the onions and curry paste. Tried once with chicken but is definitely best with Salmon. Can't wait to try a veggie version.

This recipe was absolutely terrible. I have made many fish curries before and this one was the worst. The paste is flavourless and cooks down into nothing. I ended up with spicy onion and a bit of milk. DO NOT USE THIS RECIPE (Waitrose have a MUCH better red thai curry recipe) I forgive the BBC for putting this on here, I can only hope my stomach can do the same.
