  • 400g can reduced-fat coconut milk

You can use another white fish - such as haddock or pollack - instead of cod if you prefer.


  1. Heat the oil in a large deep pan and fry the shallots for 5 mins until golden. Stir in the green curry paste and cook for 1 minute. Add the potatoes, carrot, coconut milk, stock and soy sauce. Simmer for 10-12 mins until the vegetables are almost tender.
  2. Add the chunks of cod and asparagus tips to the pan, cover, and simmer gently for 6-8 mins until the fish is just cooked and beginning to flake.
  3. Gently stir in the lime juice, tiger prawns and chopped coriander. Simmer for 5 mins, then season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve garnished with the chopped chilli and fresh coriander leaves.
