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

I have done this several times, and it never fails to please. A top on for visitors. It seems to taste even better out of the freezer! No need for the oil, simply put the paste in with the onions. Today I've used frozen pollock instead of salmon - wouldn't use this for friends, as the taste isn't quite as good, or the look - but great for a low fat, low cost family meal. Fab :0)

This was very quick and easy but I made some changes otherwise this would have a been a bit dull for me. I decided to follow the other poster's suggestion of using chicken instead and adding sweetcorn, a splash of fish sauce and lime juice. I also increased the amount of curry paste and added some extra chopped chillies to give it a bit of a kick!

I have been making this for a couple of years now. I use a packet of stir fry veg to up the 5 a day quota and serve with thai rice to soak up the sauce. Even my children eat it!

Really not sure about this one! Had it the other day and was a bit disappointed. Felt the fish was over cooked and totally fell about and the flavour just seemed far too fishy. Maybe the salmon I used wasn't fresh enough?

Just made it, perfec! Used a red onion instead, this looks good against the green beans. Quick and easy, will be making for the freezer. Excellent. :0)

Me and my husband love this! we like to add extra curry paste and chillis for extra spice and put the green beans in at the same time as the onion

I made this curry as a mid week meal and it was so easy and delicious, I added a teaspoon of fish sauce and the juice of half a lime for flavour and it was just perfect, highly reccommended!

I love this recipe and in my view is better than the thai red prawn curry on this site. I often substitute the salmon for chicken or prawns and always add baby sweetcorn. The green beans can also be substituted with sugar snaps or similar.

I love this recipe, it's become a regular favourite. I always add red or green peppers and baby sweetcorn also works well. Look forward to trying it with butternut squash as mentioned above!

This is delicious, and very healthy. I always make it with butternut squash which unfortunately takes a lot of cooking but makes the dish more filling.
