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.

Very easy and tastier than expected, but I think the beans needed more time. Will definitely be making it again.

I found it needed some salt. I also added frozen peas to increase the 5 a day quota. Very quick and tasty. I think it will become a firm favourite.

So easy and went down a storm with my hubby. The salmon tasted divine but i found the sauce turned a bit fishy!!Will try adding other ingredients as suggested above!

A good base, I added kafir lime leaves, garlic, lemongrass, ginger and some fish sauce then spiced it up with chillis. Loved it !

I added some plump prawns, zest of lime and used full fat coconut milk, naughty but so creamy!
Supper guests were really impressed so I'll make it again and experiment with other ingredients.

I added lemon juice and a bit of sugar (1 tbsp) and I found it gave more depth to the recipe. I also added more coconut milk as the curry was very strong and there is more sauce which is so good with rice. Also, I used baby fennel instead of the beans. It was really good!
