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.
