Kirstin: Miles asked me what a laksa was the other day. So I explained it’s like a soup, with coconut milk. And they were all the rage before ramen came along. I know I used to have a recipe for one that I used in heavy rotation a good long while ago. So this was like having an old friend around again. Plus I do so love making a paste and then frying it up into a soup. You may have noticed that the title of this recipe involves the word cod but she also suggests using prawns as an alternative. So I decided to do that instead. This was perfect for a cold, windy week day. Next time I will remember the coriander!
