Coconut Fish Curry – TKD

Here’s dish I came up with tonight.  I couldn’t find anything that quite fit what I wanted for my first fish curry.  I looked at a good dozen recipes and came up with this one.  It’s pretty awesome.  My wife has declared it her favorite curry of all time. Being from the UK, that means a lot. As Gordon Ramsay would say “It’s light, it’s fresh, it’s rustic”.

It’s light on the stomach and is very tasty.  You gotta try this one.  At 139 calories, it’s incredibly low cal to boot.

Add coconut milk, lemon grass, lime leaves and basil.   Add lime juice. Simmer 5 minutes covered.  Add fish and simmer for 10 minutes or till done.  Don’t over stir the fish or you’ll end up with a mess.

Optionally: add cilantro, shrimp, lump crab meat, lobster, crayfish, clams, mussels.  Reduce fish for amount of other seafood used.

1″ of regular ginger but try to use the crystallized, it really adds to the flavor.
1t of lime juice.
I was out of regular lime juice and ginger
You can probably do without the lime leaves and lemon grass if you don’t have them.
