The Best Homemade Red Thai Curry
  1. Add the green pepper and sweet potato for a few minutes. Add the curry paste and mix into all the veg.
  2. Heat a large frying pan or wok and fry the onion until soft.
  3. Turn down the temperature of the pan to a medium/low and add the coconut milk. Give everything a good stir together and once the coconut milk starts to steam, add the fish.
  4. Cook the fish through for 7-10 minutes and serve with rice or noodles, or even as a soup on its own.
