    This is a tangy and interesting way of preparing fish. Another prepare-ahead meal for great summer entertaining.

      Loved it! This combination of curry, turmeric etc works very well together. The bayleaf was from a friends bay tree and full of flavour too. I made mine on Friday and by Sunday evening we wanted to eat it... yum! DH liked it very much too but said that it's a once-in-a-while recipe that is especially suits those hot balmy summer days when you are so hot that you don't want to put too much effort into eating but fancy something full of taste. we had ours with a tapas type meal and it was lovely. Please see my rating system: 4 stars for a very different style of fish recipe, but one that stands out from the crowd with it's interesting combination of spices. Not for every day but definiately a keeper. Thanks!
