CURRIED FISH WITH PEAS

Trinis curry just about everything…and curry fish is a popular local dish here in Trinidad. Usually people prefer using kingfish or redfish but today I am using salmon. In my recipe I am also going to be including pigeon peas as it’s hubba’s favorite!

Here is the recipe:

INGREDIENTS:

TO SEASON FISH:

  • 1 salmon, sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp JGM PRODUCTS hot hot curry
  • 1/4 tsp JGM PRODUCTS amchar masala
  • 1/4 tsp JGM PRODUCTS roasted geera
  • 1/4 tsp JGM PRODUCTS black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp green seasoning

TO USE WHILE COOKING:

  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 hot pepper, chopped (can be adjusted or eliminated)
  • 1 cup green pigeon peas
  • 3-4 medium pommecythere, cut into pieces
  • 2 1/2 tbsp JGM PRODUCTS hot hot curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp JGM PRODUCTS roasted geera
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2-3 curry leaves
  • 2 tbsp green seasoning
  • 1 tsp celery, finely chopped
  • 1 pimento, finely chopped

METHOD:

  1. Season fish and set aside to marinate for half hour or more.
  2. In a pan sprayed with non stick spray, add fish slices and cook on either side for 2-3 mins or until the fish is properly cooked through.
  3. Set aside and now it’s time to prepare the curry sauce.
  4. Heat oil in pot and add onions, tomatoes, curry leaves and peppers.
  5. Cook until onions are tender.
  6. Add curry powder and geera to the pot over low heat and toast until the curry mixtures darkens and becomes grainy. Add some water at this point if necessary to prevent sticking or burning.
  7. Add peas and pommecythere. Mix well and add water.
  8. Cover pot, increase heat and cook until the sauce thickens and the pommecythere are tender. This can take roughly 20-25 mins or more depending on how much water was added and also how much sauce you want in your dish.
  9. Add fish slices to pot and carefully turn to coat all pieces with the curry sauce.
  10. Serve with rice or roti and ENJOY!

IMPORTANT POINTS TO NOTE:

Traditionally, the fish slices are coated with flour and fried but I have been trying to cook with less oil and flour these days so I opted for a simple pan seared fish for this recipe.

Also, green mango is usually used instead of the pommecythere but I had none this time so if can get your hands on some…throw them in! 🙂
