Thai Fish Curry

April 30, 2019

Thai Fish Curry Serving Presentation

This Thai fish curry is simplicity itself. Made with yellow curry paste as it is here, it is more typical of the fish curries of Southern Thailand and Malaysia owing to the light Indian spicing of the yellow curry paste. This could also be cooked in the same manner using red or green curry paste. Many Thai fish curries are not always compatible with Western tastes, often being cooked with fish heads and too sour for the Western palate. However, this is not the case with this version which is both easy to cook and makes for very easy eating too! This can also be cooked with a wide variety of fish, in this example I’m using Red Bream simply because I saw it at the fishmonger’s and wanted to give it a try, turned out to be delicious I’m pleased to say. This will work well with any firm white fish such as cod or hake and my preference is to cook it in the form of fish steaks rather than fish fillets as they hold together better. 

As always, the choice of coconut milk in a Thai curry plays a very big part in how your dish ends up so do check out this page on Cooking with Coconut Milk

Ingredients.
1 pouch of My Thai Curry Yellow Curry Paste
500 to 700 g of firm white fish
1 can of coconut milk
A few chillies, mild to medium heat
A few shallots and some sprigs of coriander.
1 or 2 Limes

Thai fish curry ingredients
Add some oil to a pan, bring to a medium heat and add some halved shallots and sauté for a few minutes and then add the chillies sliced lengthwise but kept intact as in the picture.  Cook for a few minutes more.
Saute shallots and chillies
Cut the tomatoes as shown in the picture below, this allows their sweetness to come out, and add to the mixture and cook for a few minutes before adding some sliced or chopped coriander and cooking for a minute or so more.

Add the Yellow Curry paste and then the coconut milk, use the thicker part of the coconut milk from the top of the can at first and cook through for a few minutes then adding the remainder of the coconut milk to the desired thickness. Cook the sauce gently for around 10 to 15 minutes to allow the flavours from the vegetables to enter the curry sauce.

Add-curry-paste-and-coconut-milk
Place your fish chunks into the sauce and cook gently until done, this would depend on the thickness of the fish but around 10 minutes should be sufficient in most cases.Your choice of fish can also add sweetness to the dish so you can adjust the flavour of the curry with some fresh lime juice at the end of cooking and also serve with lime wedges at the table if you wish.

Add fish to sauce
Serve and garnish with some coriander and sliced chili or as you prefer. I served this with Thai red rice which is available in Sainsbury's in the UK.
Enjoy:-)

Thai Tofu stir fry
Thai Tofu Stir-Fry

March 26, 2019

Thai curry pastes are extremely versatile. Apart from their use in curries they are also used in stir-fries and marinades and many other dishes. In this dish I have used tofu but I could also have used thinly sliced meat or simply vegetables on their own. You can really experiment with this one and chop and change ingredients..

Thai Yellow Crab Curry

February 23, 2019

This is actually a Thai dish that doesn’t scream I'm Thai! It uses evaporated milk in place of coconut milk and traditionally this is cooked with curry powder, a rarity in Thai cooking. Here we are using Thai yellow curry paste so maybe not so traditional but it makes the cooking easier and the outcome more certain as curry powders can vary tremendously. This is actually a pretty quick dish to prepare and cook so don’t be put off by the amount of pictures below, that is just me covering it in...

Thai Red Chicken Curry with Butternut Squash
Thai Red Chicken Curry with Butternut Squash

October 28, 2017

Thai red chicken curry with butternut squash is a classic and a great favourite of mine. The colouring effect of the squash results in a curry that is orange rather than red; however it is still very definitely a Thai red curry. And if that sounds confusing, what you have to know is that in Thai when we refer to a red or green curry we are talking about the colour of the chilies we use to make the curry paste, not the colour of the finished curry. You can chop and change the ratio of chicken ...

Excellent Service and Product

We love these pastes and marinades, they are all delicious, packed with flavour and truly authentic. Keep up the good work!

Best Thai curry pastes out there 👍👍👍👍

Having tried many other brands and allegedly fresh curry pastes, all the mythaicurry varieties that we have used, have proven to be the tastiest/freshest out there. Love the the cooking tips/recipes for each different Thai curry.
Can’t recommend enough 😁 👍

Amazingly rich curry paste

Having lived in London for a number of years now, I was delighted to stumble across this website. Nitsa's paste was reminiscent of the flavours used in Thai cooking back home in Southeast Asia - bold, complex, and really easy to use in daily cooking. It is a great find!

Nice taste

The red curry is a nice deep taste. I did use the wrong coconut milk so it could’ve been nicer, but the flavour came through

Green curry review

I bought these green curry’s having not had them before. I had previously tried the red and the panang curry. The green curry was great, not too hot but there was some heat to it and like the others was very aromatic. I will definitely be buying this curry again and was very pleased with it.
