Quartered this recipe for my husband, but added extra paste as he likes it spicy and did have to add a bit more milk as suace was quite thick. He said it was very tasty and would definitely eat again.

Actively disliked this. There was nothing positive. Used coconut milk rather than cows, added some broc and served with lime wedges. 5 mins is fine for cooking sweet potato if it is diced as per recipe rather than chunked as per photo!

My husband and I really enjoyed this dish, even if I did put a little too much Thai red curry paste in it. Next time I would put in just 2 teaspoons and not 3! I added Straight to Wok noodles before I added the salmon bits and they were lovely. I think the sweet potato bits added another texture to the dish and they are very good for you too! Will definitely be making this again.

Very disappointed with this recipe. As a foodie myself I thought I'd give it ago. Used my own red thai paste and the taste was fine. It was the sweet potato that spoiled the dish. It destroyed the texture of a lovely tasting meal. Next time would leave the sweet potato out and use mange tout and baby corn with coconut milk!

My Boyfriend and I felt this lacked soemthing - probably coconut milk - although as a healthy alternative you cant complain too much and was quick and easy to make for a midweek meal

You need to simmer the dish for much longer than 5 minutes to cook the potato! Make sure you cut the potato very small and allow more time.

A healthy dish using stock and milk instead of coconut milk. I added a table spoon of sugar to make it sweet and spicy. Also swapped sweet potatoes fir carrots which I did not have! Let's see what my husband says who cooks well!

Really tasty - healthy and quick mid week meal. Cut your potato up quite small and check the potato is very nearly cooked before you add your salmon or the potato won't cook in the time given and then your salmon all breaks up!
