    Halalmom's Note:

    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.

      My family and I love this fish! It's sooo easy to make! I'm not a chef, but the way the simple flavors come together, my husband was surprised!

      Great recipe, and very easy to make. Tastes fresh and light and creamy, with a greater depth of flavour than I expected from the simple ingredients list. I de-seeded and sliced the chilli, and used dried Kaffir lime leaves because I couldn't get any fresh ones (not sure what sort was needed). We then served the finished dish with a rather un-Thai Basmati rice and with green salad leaves. We loved it and will be making it again. It would be a very quick and easy dish for entertaining. Reviewed for PAC Spring 2007.
