We ate this green curry last night. I'm putting this on here, so's Tomoko who's living with us can have a copy of the recipe.

Yummo! I had some white fish fillets but felt like a curry so this was perfect! I used a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables and added some extra broccoli and thinly sliced sweet potato. I changed the order a bit by adding the fish right at the end so they just simmered in the sauce for a couple of minutes until cooked as the pieces were quite thin. They still broke up quite a lot though but this was still delicious. I served with brown rice. Thanks for posting another great recipe Jan!
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 large onion, sliced into wedges
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
- 1 (50 g) packet green curry paste
- 1 (400 ml) can coconut milk (I use light)
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 600 g fish, a white firm,strong flavoured fish is best,cut into about 2 1/2 cm chunks (we used trevally)
- 1 green chili, sliced
- 400 g assorted green vegetables (we used capsicum, snow peas, bok choy, green beans. You could also use zucchini, asparagus, brocolli)
- 3 spring onions, finely sliced
- 1⁄2 cup chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
- 1⁄2 cup basil leaves (packed)
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat the oil in a large wok, and fry the onion, ginger and garlic for about 5 minutes or until softened.
- Add the green curry paste, and fry for another 2 minutes.
- Add the coconut milk, water, lime juice and fish sauce and bring to the boil.
- Reduce to a simmer and add the fish, and any of the longer-to-cook vegetables you have chosen and cook for about 5 minutes (I added the beans along with the fish).
- Also add about half the fresh coriander.
- Add the remaining softer vegetables, and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, being careful not to overcook the fish, or knock it around too much as you stir through the vegetables.
- Stir through the fresh herbs gently.
- Serve in deep bowls over steamed rice, scattered with the fresh spring onions.
