This is a nice change from the regular curry. I got it from a Nigella Lawson cookbook. It’s a good way to get some fish if you are not a major fan.


1 x 15 ml wok oil

1 spring onion, finely sliced

1 ½ tablespoons red Thai curry paste (or according to taste)

½ x 400ml coconut milk

250 ml chicken stock made from concentrate

2 teaspoons of fish sauce

1 x 350g packet of butternut and sweet potato cubes

1 x 200g packet frozen prawns

1 teaspoon of lime

150g mango cubes, diced

3-4 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander



  1. Heat the wok oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan, and fry the sliced spring onion for a minute, then add the curry paste.
  2. Whisk in the coconut milk, chicken stock and fish sauce and bring to the boil.
  3. Tip in the butternut squash and sweet potato cubes and simmer, partially covered for about 15 minutes, or until tender.
  4. Drain the prawns under running water to remove excess ice and tumble them in to the pan, letting the sauce come back to the boil. When it does, add the lime juice and diced mango and cook for another minute or so until the prawns are cooked through.
  5. Sprinkle with the chopped coriander as you serve over plain rice or wide rice noodles, or even both.
