I think this was originally a Kraft recipe. This sauce is lovely, it's creamy but with a kick from the curry powder. The sauce also goes well over steamed broccoli as a side to this.

What a different addition to my fish repertoire! I did find the sauce just a little thick for our likings so I added some more milk, plus I added a little lemon juice to the sauce to pick it up a bit. I steamed the fish and served it with salad and jacket potatoes.
My toughest critic Russell was totally gobsmacked by this dish. He just loved it. We crumb fish quite often, but the deliciously creamy curry sauce takes it to another level-thanks Mandy for a recipe we'll make again soon. I think the sauce would work well with most veg and any sort of crumbed schnitzel or seafood (calamari or prawns). EDITING TO ADD I made this again last night (27/7/08) and got to thinking if you wanted a change, you could useleon pepper, peri peri spice mix, or cajun/creole spice mix. I reckon they'd also be good with fish and could be used in similar amounts to the curry powder.
Amber caught a fish and I caught two in our lake yesterday so we filleted them up and made this delicious recipe. To make it into a bigger meal for us all I also steamed some veggies. The sauce went fabulously over everything and was enjoyed by all the family.
