Fish & Creamy Curry Sauce

"I think this was originally a Kraft recipe. This sauce is lovely, it's creamy but with a kick from the curry powder. The sauce also goes well over steamed broccoli as a side to this."

  1. What a different addition to my fish repertoire! I did find the sauce just a little thick for our likings so I added some more milk, plus I added a little lemon juice to the sauce to pick it up a bit. I steamed the fish and served it with salad and jacket potatoes.
  2. My toughest critic Russell was totally gobsmacked by this dish. He just loved it. We crumb fish quite often, but the deliciously creamy curry sauce takes it to another level-thanks Mandy for a recipe we'll make again soon. I think the sauce would work well with most veg and any sort of crumbed schnitzel or seafood (calamari or prawns). EDITING TO ADD I made this again last night (27/7/08) and got to thinking if you wanted a change, you could useleon pepper, peri peri spice mix, or cajun/creole spice mix. I reckon they'd also be good with fish and could be used in similar amounts to the curry powder.
  3. Amber caught a fish and I caught two in our lake yesterday so we filleted them up and made this delicious recipe. To make it into a bigger meal for us all I also steamed some veggies. The sauce went fabulously over everything and was enjoyed by all the family.
  4. So good! I really loved this. I didn't have Madras curry powder (mine was Fischer's) and I wonder if that makes a difference... I loved the kick from the curry powder, and the sauce was very rich and creamy and definitely "something different" to do with fish. The kids took a bit to get used to the idea of creamy curry sauce with fish, but they ate it all up and were happy the rest of the night! Thanks for sharing. I added it to my fish cookbook and will definitely make again! Made for ZWT4.


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
