Thai Fish Curry

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.

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:-)

Delicious…, used cubes of a firm white fish added a few green beans and some left over petit pois that were in the fridge. Fresh lime juice adds the extra magic (would have added a few drops of fish sauce too but my wife accidentally threw my bottle of it away). Yum…love these sauces, everybody in my family thinks I’m a star chef!!

This is a very versatile dish that cooks in minutes, you can make it with green or red curry paste if you prefer, it can be served as a main dish or as a starter. It also works well with either noodles or spaghetti. I used fresh mussels for this but if they're not available there is a good alternative with cooked musse...

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..

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...

Most authentic paste I have tried

Makes a delicious curry, really authentic and easy to use. Would not buy any other pastes

Lovely

Really authentic just like out of a restaurant

Very flavoursome

I have always bought supermarket thai curry pastes and recently read reviews online about mythaicurry and decided to order some online. The red, green and yellow pastes are so flavoursome, couldn’t recommend enough.

Very TASTY!

We have this with the kids, a great way to eat the same food with the kids at dinner times!

Incredible!

I cannot recommend these pastes enough. So easy to make, especially when following the beautifully detailed recipes on the website. I’m going to stock up as they’re incredibly handy to have for when you want to make a meal that’s impressive to everyone who tries it, but that you secretly know you haven’t had to make much effort with as the hard work has all been done for you! Big fan.
