Mary Berry’s Thai salmon: Ingredients
There are quite a few ingredients for this Thai-inspired recipe. Although it takes under an hour to cook and cab be made in one pan, there is a bit of prep needed before you get going!
For the recipe you will need 400ml tin coconut milk (full-fat), 2 tbsp Thai red curry paste, 1 red chilli (finely diced), 1 garlic clove, 6cm piece of ginger (peeled and finely chopped), 2 limes, 2 tsp fish sauce, 1 cauliflower, 2 Romano peppers, 3 banana shallots, 2 tbsp sunflower oil, 1 tbsp runny honey, 150g baby courgettes, and finally 6 small salmon fillets with their skins removed.
You will also need a bunch of Thai basil or fresh coriander, plus salt and pepper for seasoning.

How to make the Simple Comforts salmon recipe
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 220C.
Step 2: Combine the coconut milk, Thai curry paste, diced chilli, crushed garlic, chopped ginger, lime juice and fish sauce in a bowl. Season this with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 3: Break the cauliflower into smaller florets. Deseed then dice the peppers and halve the shallots. Place the vegetables in a large roasting tin. Add 1 tbsp of the sunflower oil and coat the vegetables. Pour over half of the coconut curry mixture, season with salt and pepper again, then pour over the honey. Place the veg in the oven for 15 minutes, or until the vegetables start to brown in colour.
Step 4: Finely slice the courgettes, then combine them with the remaining tablespoon of sunflower oil. Add the courgettes and salmon to the roasting tin, then add the remaining half of the coconut curry mixture. Roast for another 10 minutes, or until the salmon has cooked through.
Step 5: Serve with a garnish of Thai basil or coriander.
