This low carb Thai curry is packed with aromatic herbs and spices, creamy coconut and omega 3 rich salmon. The curry paste is made from scratch and requires the use of a good food processor! The curry is served over a portion of cauliflower rice but would be just as delicious with courgette noodles.


  • coconut oil (2 tbsp)
  • anchovy fillets
  • salmon fillets (2 small skinless and roughly diced)
  • lime juice (2 tsp)
  • fresh ginger (1 thumb sized piece peeled)
  • garlic (1 clove peeled)
  • cauliflower rice (1 cup)
  • red chilli (1 small de-seeded and roughly chopped)
  • coconut milk (1 cup)
  • vegetable stock (1 cup)
  • ground cumin (1tsp)
  • ground coriander (1 tsp)
  • red bell pepper (1/2 small sliced)
  • lemongrass stalk (1/2 roughly chopped)
  • green beans (1/3 cup halved)
  • white onion (1/4 medium finely chopped)
  • fresh coriander (1/4 cup)
  • black pepper (generous pinch)


To prepare the curry paste, add the ginger, garlic, lemongrass, chilli, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, ground cumin, ground coriander, lime juice, black pepper, anchovy fillets and one tablespoon of the coconut milk to a food processor.

Blend to combine forming a thick paste.

Heat the remaining coconut oil in a large pan or casserole dish over a medium heat. Add the onion and sweat until tender.

Reduce the heat to low and add the curry paste to the pan. Stir well to combine and cook for 2 minutes until fragrant.

Add the remaining coconut milk and stock to the pan. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the pepper, beans and salmon to the curry sauce and simmer for a further 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and the fish is cooked through.

Whilst the salmon is cooking, add the cauliflower rice to a small pan with a tablespoon of water and cook for a minute or two until hot through.

Serve the curry over the cauliflower rice and scatter with fresh coriander.
