1. Put the shallots, lemongrass, shrimp paste, chilli and coriander stalks into a small processor with 1 tsp oil and whizz to form a smooth paste.
2. Heat 1 tsp oil in a frying pan, add the paste and curry powder and cook for 2 minutes until fragrant. Add the tomatoes and half a can of water, then cover and simmer for 5 minutes until the sauce thickens. Stir in the spinach and most of the coriander, then season.
3. Drop in the cod and prawns. Re-cover then simmer for 3 minutes until the fish is cooked through and the prawns are pink throughout. Scatter with the rest of the coriander to serve. Enjoy with rice.
Cook’s tip This Malay-inspired curry really livens the senses. For a less spicy version, you can leave out the chilli seeds or use a milder red chilli.
