1 onion
2 cloves garlic
½ butternut squash
1 red pepper
2 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil
3 tsp curry powder
1 tsp garam masala
300ml hot vegetable stock (ideally homemade with no added salt, or a low salt alternative) or water – enough to cover the veg
310g brown basmati rice
2 salmon fillets, boned and skinned
½  400ml can coconut milk
150g frozen peas

Step 1

Finely chop the onion, crush the garlic, peel the butternut squash and dice into approx. 1cm pieces along with the pepper

Step 2

Heat the oil in a large, heavy based saucepan and add the onion. Sauté over a low heat until soft, then add the crushed garlic for another minute

Step 3

Add the butternut squash and pepper to the pan, then add the curry powder and garam masala and stir to coat

Step 4

Pour over the hot stock to cover the vegetables and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for approx. 20 minutes, until the squash has softened

Step 5

Whilst your curry is cooking, rinse the rice and cook according to the pack instructions until soft and tender

Step 6

Remove the skin from the salmon fillets if not already removed, and cut into small bite sized pieces with scissors (smaller for babies)

Step 7

Add the salmon, coconut milk and the peas to the pan about five minutes before the end of the cooking time. Ensure the salmon pieces are cooked right through and all the veg is tender

Recipe notes

Serve with the brown rice, fresh coriander and a squeeze of lime - tasty! This is a great recipe for those not keen on fish – as the mild curry flavour and sweet butternut are the big flavours within this dish.

If you do want to freeze this recipe, simple make fresh rice each time (as you shouldn't freeze rice).

When shopping for the coconut milk look for organic if possible and ideally look for a brand that contains only coconut and water if you can find it. Also try and ensure that the salmon is sustainably sourced.
