This Thai-poached salmon recipe shows you how to quickly transform a piece of salmon into an exotic, fragrant meal.


  • 125g long grain rice
  • 1 tbsp Thai red or green curry paste
  • 200ml carton of coconut cream
  • 2 skinless salmon fillets
  • A good handful of trimmed fine green beans
  • Handful of fresh coriander leaves


  1. Cook rice according to the packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a medium frying pan. Add curry paste and cook, stirring, for a few seconds. Gradually stir in a coconut cream and bring to a simmer. Add salmon fillets, cover and simmer for 7-8 minutes, turning the fish over halfway.
  3. Meanwhile, blanch green beans in a pan of simmering water until just tender. Drain and divide between 2 hot serving plates.
  4. Stir some fresh coriander leaves into the sauce. Top the beans with the salmon, spooning over the sauce. Garnish with coriander and serve with the cooked rice.
