Very good recipe! We enjoyed it very much with some lime-cilantro basmati rice. Instead of blanching, I cooked the green beans in the coconut cream and (green) chili paste, that I also added some basil from our garden before poaching the salmon. Also squeezed half a lime into the sauce before serving. We really enjoyed it and it was so easy!

  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.
  3. Gradually stir in a coconut cream and bring to a simmer.
  4. Add salmon fillets, cover and simmer for 7-8 minutes, turning the fish over halfway.
  5. Meanwhile, blanch green beans in a pan of simmering water until just tender. Drain and divide between 2 hot serving plates.
