1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 ½ tbsp Thai red curry paste
1 onion, finely sliced
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
½ tbsp grated root ginger
400ml coconut milk
1 tsp Thai fish sauce
½ tsp palm sugar
500g Alaska salmon, skinned and chunked
1 pak choi, quartered
60g okra, halved
60g mangetout
30g beansprouts
2 lime segments
1 handful of coriander, chopped
20g unsalted peanuts, chopped
Jasmine rice, to serve

1. Heat the oil in a large pan, stir in the curry paste and heat until the paste splits from the oil.

2. Stir in the onion, garlic and ginger and cook gently for about 3-5 minutes until softened.

3. Pour in the coconut milk, fish sauce and palm sugar and then bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer, then add the salmon chunks.

4. Leave to simmer gently for 3 minutes and then add in the vegetables and lime.

5. Cook for a further 2 minutes until the salmon is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

6. Scatter with the coriander and peanuts and serve with steamed jasmine rice.

Cook’s tip: If you like your food spicy, just add in a little (or a lot!) more curry paste. Use soft brown sugar if you can’t find palm sugar.
