Ingredients

  • jasmine rice 100g
  • red Thai curry paste 2 tbsp
  • low-fat coconut milk 4 tbsp
  • fish sauce 2 tsp
  • sugar snap peas 50g
  • baby corn 50g, halved lengthways
  • salmon 2 fillets
  • limes 2, 1 juiced, 1 wedged to serve
  • spring onion 1, thinly sliced
  • coriander 1 small handful

Method

  • Step 1

    Put the jasmine rice into a small pan with 200ml of water and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, simmer fiercely for 1 minute, then put on a tight-fitting lid and cook gently for 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and leave to steam for 10 minutes. Fluff up with a fork to serve.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the curry paste, coconut milk and fish sauce into a small bowl and whisk together. Cut 2 rectangles of baking paper (about 18cm x 10cm) and put one in the centre of a large piece of foil, roughly 30cm long. Scatter half the sugar snap peas and baby corns onto the paper and put the salmon fillet on top. Pour over 1/2 the curry paste mixture, then scrunch up the foil to seal into a large parcel. Repeat to make a second parcel.

  • Step 3

    Put both into the oven for 15 minutes, or until the vegetables and salmon are cooked through. Open up each parcel, squeeze over the lime juice, scatter with spring onion and coriander, and serve with the rice and lime wedges to squeeze over.

Left-over coconut milk freezes well – pour into ice cube trays, then you can just pop out a few cubes to add straight into sauces.
