Fish and Shrimp Curry

Hello everyone. How are you all doing today? I can’t believe the weekend is over. Where did it go? Lol. Anyway a new week is about to begin, and what better way than to start with a new recipe and an easy one at that. 

Fish is one of my favourite proteins to eat. So fast to cook and also delicious and satisfying. The great thing about fish is that it’s very very light and not heavy. So if you are looking to eat very light especially at night, consider adding fish as a protein of choice. But remember don’t over do it. Just keep it simple πŸ™‚ 

Ok let’s get started shall we 

INGREDIENTS 

  • Shrimps
  • Chopped fillet of fish (I used salmon and cod) (very low mercury fish) 
  • 400g of Coconut milk 
  • 2 medium sized chopped tomatoes 
  • 1 dried stalk of Lemon grass 
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of Curry powder 
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of grated Ginger
  • 1 clove of minced Garlic 
  • Finely chopped 1/2 White onion 
  • 2 sliced Spring onions (white part)
  • 1 teaspoon of Turmeric 
  • 1 red chilli finely chopped 
  • 2 tbs of Rapeseed oil (you can used Vegetable oil or coconut oil)
  • Fish stock cube or just use plain Knorr cube if you don’t have fish stock cube 

UTENSILS

  • Sauce pan 
  • Chopping board 
  • Wooden spoon or spatula 
  • Grater

Method: 

Chop the onions finely



 Chop the chilli 

Slice the spring onions 


and finely mince the garlic and ginger


Next heat up the oil
Add the chopped onions, chilli, lemon grass. SautΓ©e on low heat for 4 minutes

This is what it should look like after 4 minutes 


Now add the spring onions, ginger, sautΓ©e for 30 seconds 


Then add the curry and tuneric powder 



the reason why I added these after is because both ingredients have the tendency to burn quickly and loose flavour when not used at the right time)

Add the chopped tomatoes 


Now add the coconut milk. Stir well and let it simmer on low heat for 7 minutes


Add the fish and (es) cover the pot and let it steam cook for 5 minutes 


Finally add the cooked shrimps. Let it cook for 2 minutes. 


Remove from the heat. Let it rest for a few minutes. The residual heat will finish off the steaming of the fish and shrimps 
It’s is ready to be served

Wasn’t that easy πŸ™‚ 

Enjoy

That’s it from me today 

I’ll see you all in my next post 

Love Duchess O
