OK, so we're supposed to eat more fish, and I have to admit, I don't eat anywhere near enough, I am way too busy testing recipes that normally don't have fish as the starring ingredient…but this is one of my older recipes that appeared in last year's Thermomix calendar. It is fragrant and quick, and definitely a great way to include fish in your weekly menu. I have another one of these fragrant curries up my sleeve as well…so stay tuned if you like this one….more to come.
