Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan, then add the curry paste. Stir in the onion, then cook gently for about 5 mins until softened. Pour in the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer, then add the salmon chunks and beans.
  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.

I also substituted red peppers for the green beans. The sauce perks up with a few dashes of fish sauce. I used a 400ml tin of coconut milk, since I felt that 250 ml didn't seem enough liquid, and even that didn't reach a level where it was cooking the salmon, so I had to do some constant careful stirring and turning. However, the result was really nice, served with basmati rice. I think a lot depends on your red curry paste, since they do vary in strength.
I would recommend the fish sauce though. It transforms most Thai curries into something special.

This is one of my favourite curries, always goes down well and is absolutely gorgeous.

Lovely! bought green thai paste by mistake, but it was still great. added a 1tbsp of fish sauce, 1 tbsp soy sauce and a 1 tbsp of worcestershire sauce and a sprinkle of palm sugar. I will definitely try it again, but with red thai paste this time.

I would highly recommend this dish. It was ready in 15 minutes and tasted delicious. I halved the amount of ingredients so that it was enough for two and served with fresh steamed vegetables to keep the calories down.

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.
