We used half the fish in the same amount of sauce. I made it with a Malaysian curry powder, light coconut milk and snapper. To make a one dish meal, we added zuchinni chunks and green capsicum around the same time as we added the fish. This was a perfect way to eat fish (yet again) as it is tasty, but still subtle enough to let the fish flavour come through. Don't omit the lime and I served this with a good sprinkle of fresh coriander.
