Method

 
To make the red curry paste:
Blend all curry past ingredients in a food processor until well mixed and fragrant. Use coconut milk to loosen the mixture if too thick. If you have time, let the paste stand for a few hours to allow the flavours to combine.

To make the curry:
Heat the oil in a large pot. Add the onion and fry for 2 minutes. Add 4 Tbsp of the curry paste and cook for 5 minutes. Stir regularly to prevent the paste from burning or sticking.

Pour in the coconut cream and mix thoroughly, cooking for 2 minutes. Next add the coconut milk before adding the salmon and beans at the same time.

Simmer for 5 – 8 minutes before serving (don’t overcook the salmon as it will flake into the curry sauce)

Serve with fresh coriander and lime wedges on Jasmine rice.
