Tasty and healthy will use again, I added garlic, extra ginger and served with brown rice with peas in. Very nice!

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!
