Fish in a Red Curry Sauce

This recipe is from Bon Appetit. I have made very few changes but will put the recipe here with them, inspired by the Bon Appetit recipe. This is a quick delicious fish dish that everyone I have ever made it for loves.

I have also made it with tofu & it is just as delicious as with the fish. The flavor is subtle which makes it good for everyone! I actually make this dish often & every time I do, Murray says “I really like this!” in somewhat of a surprised voice since he would eat steak every night & never really wants to eat fish, though he always does!  Funny! You should really try this dish, I do not think you will be disappointed!

(Please note that this in not my recipe at all. The only change I made was using frozen vegetables instead of fresh & serving it with a rice or quinoa. I have written the method out as I made it )

Here is the link to the recipe

Fish in a Red Curry Sauce


1 shallot, diced

2 garlic clove, chopped

2 tsp minced ginger *** I use minced ginger from a jar…

2 tbsp oil

2 tbsp red curry paste

2 tsp turmeric

1 small can diced tomatoes

1 can coconut milk

4 cups frozen mixed vegetables *** I use a mix of broccoli, cauliflower & sliced carrots *** you can some spinach to this as well, which I have done

453 grams (1 lb) firm white fish, cut into slices…I sliced it and cut the slices in half. Cut it into any type of slice/cube you would like to eat!   or use TOFU cubed or sliced

cooked rice or quinoa

lime, quartered

cilantro , washed & take off the stems


  1. In a medium size saucepan, sauté the diced shallot, garlic & ginger until brown
  2. Add the curry paste & tumeric, mix well & cook until the curry paste gets thick
  3. Add the tomatoes with the juice, stir well & cook for a few minutes to reduce the liquid a bit
  4. Add the can of coconut milk & cook until incorporated & warmed through
  5. Add the frozen vegetables, stir & cook on a low simmer until the vegetables are defrosted & warm.
  6. Nestle the cut fish into the broth & continue to cook at a low simmer until the fish is cooked
  7. Serve over cooked rice or quinoa. *** The original recipe says to serve over rice noodles but we prefer a grain to soak up the delicious sauce
  8. Serve with a squirt of lime & cilantro leaves on top …if you like cilantro! We love it but if you don’t, it certainly isn’t necessary!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
