1. Place rice in a saucepan, cover with x 1.5 amount of water. Cover with a lid, cook on lowest heat for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat, stand for 5 minutes. Stir carefully with a fork.

2. Cut fish fillets into 3cm chunks. Combine in a bowl with 2 tbsp sesame oil and sesame seeds, set aside.

3. Grate ginger and crush garlic. Add to a large, heated saucepan with 1/2 tbsp oil along with 1/2-1 tbsp red curry paste (see notes). Cook for 1 minute over medium heat, or until fragrant.

4. Stir in coconut milk and 1 cup water. Halve and bruise lemongrass, add to pan. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.

5. Peel carrot into short ribbons. Add to broth with the fish, simmer for 3-4 minutes. Trim snow peas, add to broth and cook for a further 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in 2 tbsp fish sauce.

6. Finely grate lime zest then cut lime into wedges. Serve fish curry with rice and a lime wedge. Top with lime zest to taste.

You can use any Asian-style curry paste in your cupboard, just make sure you use to taste as they can vary in heat and flavour. Start with a small amount of curry paste and increase to taste if cooking for younger kids.

Slice and serve snow peas fresh as a topping instead if you prefer.
