Grilled salmon with a coconut-curry sauce


  • Combine the tomatoes and spring onions with 1 sliced chilli, 1 heaped tbsp chopped coriander, the juice of 1 lime, seasonings and a good slurp of oil. Set aside to develop the flavours.
  • Heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed deep pan and gently sauté the red onion and garlic until tender, stirring now and again.
  • Add the lime leaves, spices, chilli paste and cloves. Mix well and briefly cook to toast.
  • Then add the coconut milk with about 1 cup stock and seasonings. Mix well and briefly cook, before adding the corn and apple. Cook for about 10-15 mins until of a sauce consistency, adding more stock if needed.
  • When ready, season the fish, sprinkle with lime juice and cook on a lightly oiled, preheated ridged grill (or BBQ).
  • Then drain the tomato mixture, stir through the curry sauce and taste for seasoning.
  • Serve the fish on a bed of the sauce in individual flat soup bowls with a sprinkling of chilli, coriander and Vietnamese mint on top.
