    WiGal's Note:

    This came from a KENYA AND TANZANIA web site and is specifically Swahili. They suggest using red snapper. I wonder if catsup could be subbed for the tomato puree? Serve with rice. Posted for ZWT4.

      Nice spicy fish....I'll add a little fire to this next time with some cayenne to liven it up. This recipe is really visually appealing, so it would be nice for a dinner party. But it's quick enough for a week night. Thanks for sharing!

      Russ cooked this for our dinner tonight. It seemed to me (watching) to be a simple recipe and was very yummy to eat! He used half a 440g can of tomatoes, three teaspoons of curry powder and tomato paste rather than puree. We catch and eat a lot of fish and I have to say I really enjoyed this one. Aussies, we used leatherjacket fillets and as Russ had cut them to bite-sized, he simmered the sauce for about 15 minutes, then slipped the fish in and cooked for about 3 more minutes.
