150 ml Thai coconut milk
10 gram Coconut palm sugar
1 tsp Fish sauce
1 tsp Water
1/4 tsp Lemon juice
1/4 tsp Corn flour

-Prepare the steamer and bring the water to boil.
-Use the hand whisk to mix 100 ml of Thai coconut milk, Thai red curry paste, eggs, fish sauce and coconut sugar in the mixing bowl.
-Add the salmon and lime juice into the mixing bowl. Fold all ingredients ever so gently.
-Transfer the mixture into the small ramekins. Place them on the steamer tray. Steam the soufflé to the medium heat for 16-18 minutes.
-Mix the rest of coconut milk, a pinch of salt and cornflour in a small saucepan. Heat gently and keep stirring until the sauce has got a smooth consistency. It should take only a minute or two. Set aside.
-Once the soufflé is cooked, add a dollop of the coconut sauce and steam for further 2 minutes.
-Garnish with basil leaves and chopped red chillies. Enjoy Thai Salmon Steamed Soufflè as a starter, snack or dare I say Breakfast!!
-Do not over fold the mixture after you added the salmon or any seafood. Once or twice is more than enough.
-You can use other seafood instead of salmon, smoked salmon is also lovely with this recipe.
-Thais serve this easy Thai food in a lovely handmade banana leaf bowl and often add the shredded Kaffir Lime Leaf on the top to create a beautiful fragrance to the dish.
