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.
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil extra virgin
- 2 fillets anchovies
- 2 salmon skinless and roughly diced
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 1 thumb sized piece fresh ginger peeled
- 1 clove garlic peeled
- 1 cup cauliflower rice
- 1 small red chilli de-seeded and roughly chopped
- 1 cup coconut milk

- ½ small red bell pepper sliced
- ½ stalk lemongrass roughly chopped
- 1/3 cup green beans halved

- 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.
