Ingredients

  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 
onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 large cloves garlic, crushed
  • a thumb-sized piece 
ginger, crushed
  • 2 red chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 stick lemongrass, finely chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp (depending on how hot you like it) Thai red curry paste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 400ml tin coconut milk
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 300g green beans, trimmed
  • 1 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • a small bunch coriander, roughly chopped
  • cooked basmati rice, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1
    Lightly season the salmon. Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the oil, onion, garlic, ginger and some seasoning in a pan over a medium heat, and fry for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add the chilli and lemongrass, and fry for another minute. Stir in the curry paste and mix for 1 minute. Splash in the soy sauce followed by the chopped tomatoes, coconut milk and lime zest, and mix together.
  • STEP 2
    Put the salmon fillets side by side in a medium roasting tin so that they fit snugly. Add the green beans around the fish and spoon over the coconut curry mixture. Season and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.
  • STEP 3
    Toast the desiccated coconut in a frying pan for 2-3 minutes or until browned.
  • STEP 4
    Finish by scattering over the toasted coconut, chopped coriander and a generous squeeze of lime juice. Serve with basmati rice, if you like.
