  • Followed recipe precisely.

    Followed recipe precisely. Rice turned out dry and salmon still smelled fishy. So, I took a portion and added light coconut milk, a little Thai fish sauce and lime juice and cooked over the stove a little more to boost the flavor. Instead of that, I might have finished it with a Thai curry sauce.

    Lovely dish although I made a couple of changes. I included a couple of coriander roots and some chilli to the paste. The washed rice was simply added to the basket without sautéing. I also added a small can (165ml) of light coconut milk to the liquid. Everything , including broccoli and carrots , was ready in 19 minutes.  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Really nice flavours. Chopped

    Really nice flavours. Chopped the lemongrass for 10 secs but even this was not long enough and the fibrous stalk made the rice quite hardto eat.  I'll definitely try it again though.
