Lovely dish served it with noodles. My partner wasn't too fond of it so probably won't make it again but nice dish all the same.

Tried this and was a bit sceptical as seemed too simple to be very tastey but was pleasantly suprised as was delish and pretty healthy! One of my new faves!

A fantastic way to cook 'melt in the mouth' 'as it should be' salmon. The Thai flavours were aromatic and balanced well. I added sliced garlic, green beans, curly kale and pak choi to the stir frying ingredients whilst omitting the coriander. I doubled up the sauce and served with brown rice.

Quick, easy, and tasty! Me and my bf both loved it. I think I used too much chilli though, definitely less next time.

My salmon took a lot longer to cook than the time on here but it was nice once done, didn't think it was amazing though. I made it with cocnut rice and a salad of grated carrot, beansprouts, sliced icebery, spring onions and a thai dressing which went very well with it.

Salmon def needed longer - may depend on thickness?

Amazingly easy, I added garlic and cooked the ginger etc in a small frying pan. Served with basmati rice and a pickled carrot, cucumber and radish salad and was completely delish!!!

I tried it and loved it - took out the chili peppers though and it was still nice and mildly spicy!

this was simple and very tasty. I roasted teh salmon in the oven for 15 mins & added some garlic, carrot straws and brocolli to the stir fry and served with steamed rice - delicious!
