Recipe by Halalmom

I just love Thai cuisine. This is a lovely recipe developed by Australian TV-chef Bill Granger, a wonderful cook! Serve with lots of steamed rice and a Thai cucumber salad.

We really liked this. I didn't have a thai red pepper so I substituted about 1/2 tsp. of Thai Red Curry paste. It was not at all spicy. I served the fish over rice. I used Swai, a mild white fish similar to Tilapia.
