DIRECTIONS

  • Place garlic, red onion, galangal, lemongrass, turmeric, paprika, fish sauce and brown sugar in a blender and process until finely blended.
  • Add the coconut milk and process until thoroughly blended.
  • Transfer the coconut mixture to a heavy pased pan.
  • Crush the kaffir lime leaves in your hand to release their aroma, and add them to the pan.
  • Bring the coconut mixture to the boil and reduce to a gentle simmer and cook for 10 minutes, to allow the flavour to infuse and the liquid to reduce slightly.
  • Add the fish chunks and poach gently for 4-5 minutes.
  • Stir through the lemon juice, then trasfer to serving bowls.
