COCONUT CURRY FISH FILLET

Curry is a popular way of enjoying any meat and most veggies. Adding coconut milk to curry dishes, in my opinion, adds an extra depth of richness and flavor. This recipe is a simple way to use fish and create a delicious dish!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb fish fillet (I used mahi mahi), cut into chunks
  • 3 tbsp green seasoning
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated
  • 2 pimento, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • Hot pepper, as you like
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp JGM Products curry powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Season fish with salt, black pepper and green seasoning. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pot over low/medium heat. Add chopped onions, garlic, pimento, hot pepper and tomatoes. Cook until onions are tender.
  3. Add curry powder. Keep stirring for 1-2 minutes. This step is necessary to ‘toast’ the curry powder which helps in releasing the flavors from it. Add a little water if necessary to prevent burning or sticking.
  4. Add the water, coconut milk and bay leaf. Increase heat to medium and cook for a few minutes until there is enough sauce to your liking and it begins to thicken. Add fish pieces and cook until the fish is properly cooked through. The time will depend on the size of the fish chunks.
  5. Taste and adjust salt accordingly.
  6. Garnish with freshly chopped chive. Serve with bamasti rice or your choice of side dish.

NOTES:

  • The amount of curry sauce and thickness of the sauce will depend on your preference. Be mindful however, if you want it to be ‘saucy’ and you do add more water, you may want to add more coconut milk to ensure the coconut flavor is present in the sauce.
  • The amount of coconut milk used can be adjusted to your preference. You can add a little to the pot with the water and taste it before adding the fish pieces to determine how much more coconut milk should be added.
  • The fish will take no time to cook so ensure the sauce is to your liking with regards to the amount and thickness before adding the fish to ensure you don’t overcook the fish which can result in it falling apart.
  • The fish I used was mahi mahi which is a firm fish. If you aren’t able to get your hands on any firm fish, any fish fillets can work but you’ll need to be more gentle with them.

This is such an amazing and easy dish! I hope you give it a try. Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to follow me on Instagram and send me those pics when you try this recipe.
