Pop the potatoes into a pan of boiling water and cook for 5 minutes and drain.

For the curry paste place all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until smooth. You may need to scrape down the side a couple of times until blended and smooth.

In a dry frying pan add the curry paste and cook for 3-4 minutes with the potatoes until you have a wonderful aroma in the air. Pour in the coconut milk, vegetable stock and soy sauce.

Bring to a simmer and pop in the fish, but not the prawns and cook for about 3 minutes. Then add the prawns, sugar snaps, pak choi and coriander. Continue simmering for 5 minutes. Mix the cornflour with some of the sauce in a small bowl then stir into the pan to thicken slightly and serve.
