Thai Red Salmon Curry

I'm moving house in a week and have been busy packing. I can't wait for this to be over, moving is a nightmare but I'm excited and looking forward to be moving into my new home. The last thing I want to be doing at this moment is spending too much time cooking, so quick easy meals are a must. Yesterday whilst leaving Waitrose I spotted one of their free recipe cards for Thai Red Salmon Curry. It not only looked delicious but it was just the kind of quick meal I am able to do right now. I cooked this for hubby and I and it was the perfect end to a busy day. This curry is mild, yet has depth of flavour that comes from the combination of all the wonderful ingredients. I will definitely be making this again!

Thai Red Salmon Curry

Serves 2

100g Le Puy Green Lentils
1 tbsp sunflower oil
100g green beans, topped, tailed and halved
1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
2 Salmon Fillets, skinned and cubed
100g jar Thai Red Curry Paste
½ x 400ml can Coconut Milk
½ x 20g pack fresh coriander, chopped
½ x bunch salad onions, thinly sliced

Rinse the lentils and place in a medium-sized pan, generously covered with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15–20 minutes until just tender. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a heavy-based pan and add the beans and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes, then add the salmon and stir together for 1 minute.

Stir in the curry paste and cook for 1 minute. Add the coconut milk and simmer gently for 4–5 minutes until the salmon is cooked through. Add the drained lentils, then scatter with the sliced salad onions and coriander. Serve with steamed rice

Looks great. I love salmon but I've never thought of adding it to a curry before. It seems so obvious now lol

That looks so good!! I'm so sheltered, I've never stepped foot in a Waitrose.

(I know. Terrible.)

Good luck with the move, hope it all goes well!!

Brenda, many thanks!

Chele, if you love salmon and curries, you will love this!

Cara, the lentils are a lovely addition to this curry.

The Girl: Waitrose is nice but expensive, I couldn't do my weekly shopping there. I only ever go there when I am in town and need a few bits. You must try this curry, it's amazing!

thanks for this - there's no Waitrose in Ireland and I tried this yummy dish at my sisters in London, then tried to reproduce it at home. thought it would be on the Waitrose app and it's not - but found it here instead!
