Wow! So tasty! I forgot to buy fresh ginger so I added a teaspoon of ground ginger at the same time as the cumin and curry powder. We'll definitely be eating this again!
this was very very good! I have been looking for a good curry recipe and finally found it. I am vegan, so I didt use this on a fish...I just used the sauce over brown jasmine rice...it was soooo delicious!
I'm always looking for a stellar fish recipe and this qualified for my "for keeps" cookbook! This has a nice layered flavor. I used jarred ginger, the white and green parts of the onions, and regular coconut milk. For those who thought there wasn't enough flavor I think using both the green parts and the white parts of the onions makes a big difference as the green is spicier. Possibily regular coconut milk will add more flavor, that's what I could find. The parchment paper was a good idea. I found that the sauce can be made ahead and warmed, but don't overwarm it. You'll want to have more rice for the yummy sauce.
This recipe had a lot of work involving a lot of fragrant ingredients, yet it was strangely bland. The fish was excellent just by itself, though. I wound up adding some Tom Yum soup base to the rest of the sauce with some shrimp and a little water and ate it as soup.
When I first bit into this it was great, and the smell was awesome, but for whatever reason it's lost it's loven feeling about 1/2 way through. I might not have reduced the sauce enough...I'm not sure. I almost doubled the sauce as some suggested and it was just about right. Will try it again, but will probably add more of the curry's
I wish I could give this 10 stars - I LOVED it. My only deviation from the recipe is that I could only find regular coconut milk (not light) and I left out the cilantro because my husband can't stand it. I would have preferred cilantro, and I might add it to just my portion next time. I think this would be as good or better with shrimp. Even my 4 year old came into the kitchen to ask what smelled so good. I will repeat this many times, I'm sure!
This is one of my family's favorite recipes. So many flavors that go so well together. I can never leave a recipe alone so most of the time I use twice the amount of ginger, garlic, green onion, red curry paste and Indian curry powder, and I add 1/4 tsp Thai chili powder and a green bell pepper. And I make sticky rice. I also grill the fish on the stove top. Everything else I keep the same. I make this at least three times a month, sometimes more. It also goes well with flounder and other firm white fish and also deep-fried chicken chunks. Thank you so much for this recipe. We've really enjoyed it.
I made this for my husband and I for dinner tonight. I cut the recipe in half and made it per the directions (no modifications.) It was really good. We both cleaned our plates. No problems at all with this recipe, only reason it did not get a 5 star rating is that this is my first rating. We had Basmati rice that I made with chicken broth, sesame oil and green onions stirred in just before serving.
So easy to prepare and so delicious. I agree with YungB - definitely restaurant quality. This is one of our favorite zaar recipes and we make it every couple weeks. Thanks so much for posting it.
