Thai Style Coconut Fish Curry

Yellow coconut Thai curry on white plate

AN EASY ONE-PAN RECIPE THAT IS BURSTING WITH FLAVOR!

Craving for bold flavors? Then this dish will hit all the right notes. The balance of spicy, salty, sweet, and umami are just perfect.

Thai food is known to be spicy but you can make this dish as mild as you like by removing the fresh chili.

You can easily prepare this the night before and simply pop it into the oven when you are ready to have it. The longer it marinates, the more flavorful it gets.

If you don't have any fish on hand, try replacing it with prawns and I promise you’ll enjoy it just as much! Serve over some steamed jasmine rice, sautéed broccolini or other green veg for a complete meal!

INGREDIENTS

    • 4 fish fillets (barramundi or salmon) about 150g/5oz - 200g/7oz
