    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.

      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.

      I really enjoyed this curried fish dish. I thought it was easy to prepare and had a perfect balance of flavors. I followed all directions and ingredients as posted with the exceptions of using olive oil for vegetable oil, 3-4 tsp of hot curry powder and tomato paste for the "puree." I used red snapper as suggested in the description. I would have this dish again. Thanks for posting.

      I made this for the Africa Curry Challenge for ZWT4. I only used 1 onion and tomato and that was more than enough. I enjoyed this simple tasting dish and may use cayenne to up the heat a little bit. Other than that, a simple tasty fish dish. Thanks!!
