Coconut Fish Curry
I do love a curry and all different varieties, although I rarely have a fish curry, it's usually chicken or beef for me but every now and then I will try something new. I used king prawns in mine however you could use something like monkfish if you prefer.
The recipe Ingredients
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 yellow pepper finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsbp mild curry paste (I used balti)
1 inch of peeled fresh ginger, grated
1 red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
400ml can coconut milk
125g king prawns or a monkfish fillet
1 tbsp fresh chopped coriander
1tbsp mango chutney
basmati rice (or whatever your preference is)
salt & black pepper
Put 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion, yellow pepper, garlic for a few mins till soft. Add the remaining oil, curry paste, ginger and chilli and cook for a further minute.
Pour in the coconut milk, bring to the boil then turn the heat down to a gentle simmer and cook for 5 mins, stirring occasionally.
If you are adding monkfish, you add it at this point and cook for 5-10 mins until tender.
If you are using king prawns only cook for a couple of minutes until they turn pink in colour or if you are using cooked prawns just cook for 1 minute.
Stir in the chopped coriander and mango chutney and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve with basmati rice and top with a sprinkle of chopped coriander - enjoy!
