Prep time

Cooking time

12-15 Minutes


  • 1 salmon fillet 
  • 2-3 teaspoons red curry paste

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 kaffir lime leaf, finely sliced

  • 4 thick slices sweet potato


  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat, add the salmon and cook 2-3 minutes each side or until cooked through. Do not over cook. (Time will depend on thickness of the fillet.) Salmon is cooked when the flesh just starts to separate at the thickest part and turns a pale pink colour
  • Place fish onto a serving plate, set aside.  Remember the fish will keep cooking while resting
  • Add the vegetables to the same pan with a little more oil if necessary, char cook for 2-3 minutes each side until just fork tender. 

  Meanwhile while fish is resting

  • Mix the coconut cream, red curry paste, kaffir lime leaf, fish sauce and a splash oil together 
  • Place the mixture into a small saucepan, cook over medium heat until it thickens slightly
  • Arrange the fish and vegetables on a serving plate, pour the sauce over fish
  • Serve and Enjoy!
