  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.

Tasty dish although the green beans were still hard after the 5 mins simmering so had to simmer for longer and also added more coconut milk to have a bit more sauce.

I have made this a few times. The beans give a great texture so I always use them, but add garlic, and thinly sliced ginger (I love ginger!) and maybe some'exotic' veg if it's in the 'cheap' counter at the supermarket (Okra, baby cobs, little carrots etc.).

Delicious, quick and easy. I julienned a carrot and put it in just after the onions. I also put in the beans about a minute before the salmon. It turned out perfectly and the carrot was an improvement, to my taste.

really simple yet still tasty. It doesnt have the depth of a true thai curry, but is low in calories, and a greta quick midweek meal

saw this a while ago and finally made it tonight, glad i did so easy to do! i added a couple of handfuls or spinach rather than the green beans, also added garlic with the onions, then the juice of half a lime and a few drops of fish sauce! Delicious! will definitely make again

A fantastic recipe that I use quite often. I recommend putting the beans in at the same time as the onions, as otherwise I find they're not cooked enough (and I like my veg al dente!)

Used red onion, courgettes and mushrooms and double the coconut milk to have more of a sauce. Was absolutely delicious served with a herby coucous!

Really quick and simple to make and tasted delicious. I added some baby corn and lime juice as an extra. I also added a little bit more coconut milk than the recipe suggested and used full fat (naughty!). Will be making this dish again and again.

We thought it was delicous, and oh so easy - BF only liked thai green curry till he had this one, he has even asked for it again this weekend :-D

Very tasty and very easy, no fuss. I threw in a veg medley of tender stem broccoli, mange tout and green beans and it was still great. We had it with brown rice and it was a decent weekday dinner. Highly recommended!

Wow this is really quick and easy, and tastes superb! I was a bit wary of using salmon in a curry but it tasted lovely and had a great texture. I used Thai Taste red curry paste and added half an orange pepper and a handful of frozen peas instead of the green beans. This makes an ideal meal for mid week.

The green beans took a lot longer to cook so I would suggest part boiling them first. Also, it says 1tbsp of Thai red curry paste but I added 4 and it was perfect!!

This was delicious, very easy to make and my hubby loved it! I did however boil the beans before adding to the curry.

Made this today and it was really nice. i added more Coconut Milk than suggested as i wanted more sauce for the rice and also threw in a few mushrooms.
Next time i do it i will add the beans a little earlier than the salmon as i think they needed cooking for a bit longer
yes i will make it again it was great and got the thumbs up
