Carrying the flavours of lemongrass, ginger, coconut and turmeric, Andy Waters' salmon with coconut sauce recipe packs a fragrant punch. The salmon fillets are cooked in the sauce, keeping the flesh moist and flavoursome.
Andy Waters helped put the Midlands on the gastronomic map when he won a Michelin star in 2003 for Edmunds. The award came within six months of opening and the restaurant went on to be named restaurant of the year by Harden's Guide.
