    Also known as scallions or green onions, spring onions are in fact very young onions, harvested…


  1. Cook the rice following pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat the curry paste with a splash of water in a frying pan with a lid. Add the onion and gently cook until soft. Pour in the coconut milk and crumble on the stock cube. Simmer to make a smooth sauce, adding a splash of water if it’s too thick.

  2. Stir in the beans, then top with the fish. Cover and simmer for 10-12 mins until the fish is just cooked through. Drain the rice, halve it, letting the other half cool for tomorrow – chill once cool. Sprinkle the curry with the spring onions and serve with the rice.

Absolutely lovely. Didn't have spring onion and used frozen mixed veg. Also cooked the fish from frozen. So simple. Will definitely be making regularly!

This is a fantastic mid week recipe.Delicious. I added an extra tablespoon of curry paste, and it gave it a bit of extra flavour, I would definitely recommend that others do the same.

This was surprisingly good. I left out the frozen green beans and added mushrooms, peas and fresh tomatoes instead.

Yummy :) nice for a quick dinner. I used mushrooms and broc instead of beans with pollock as that was what I had. Didn't give full mark as it's not as tasty as making a nice curry from scratch, but that's to be expected! Great for what it is; a nice quick, cheap and yummy way for us to get more fish in our diet.

Loved this, was so easy and first time I have used this kind of frozen fish (i.e. buying it straight from the freezer). I did forget to defrost it so just put the whole fillets on top of the curry and broke up it up into smaller pieces once it was cooked through.
