  • 400ml can Bart Reduced Fat Coconut Milk
  • 500ml pack Waitrose Cooks’ Ingredients Chicken Stock
  • 2 lemon grass stalks, finely chopped
  • 35g sachet Blue Elephant Thai Red Curry Paste
  • 300g Tilda Thai Jasmine Rice
  • 200g pack trimmed green beans

  1. Put the coconut milk, chicken stock, lemon grass and curry paste in a flameproof casserole dish with a lid, and bring to the boil, stirring with a wooden spoon until the paste dissolves.
  2. Add the rice and green beans and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  3. Lay the salmon fillets on top of the rice. Season then cover and cook for a further 5-8 minutes until the rice is tender but not completely dry, and the fish is just cooked through.
