I have made this a few times. The beans give a great texture so I always use them, but add garlic, and thinly sliced ginger (I love ginger!) and maybe some'exotic' veg if it's in the 'cheap' counter at the supermarket (Okra, baby cobs, little carrots etc.).

Delicious, quick and easy. I julienned a carrot and put it in just after the onions. I also put in the beans about a minute before the salmon. It turned out perfectly and the carrot was an improvement, to my taste.

really simple yet still tasty. It doesnt have the depth of a true thai curry, but is low in calories, and a greta quick midweek meal

saw this a while ago and finally made it tonight, glad i did so easy to do! i added a couple of handfuls or spinach rather than the green beans, also added garlic with the onions, then the juice of half a lime and a few drops of fish sauce! Delicious! will definitely make again

A fantastic recipe that I use quite often. I recommend putting the beans in at the same time as the onions, as otherwise I find they're not cooked enough (and I like my veg al dente!)

Used red onion, courgettes and mushrooms and double the coconut milk to have more of a sauce. Was absolutely delicious served with a herby coucous!
