Caribbean Coconut Curry Fish

Curry and Fish are simply perfection. This Caribbean coconut curry fish is perfect for all the seafood and curry lovers out there. Simple and delicious.

 

I have to admit that I was hesitant to add curry to my seafood dishes. In my opinion, curry was created for chicken, beef, pork and goat not seafood. However, this Caribbean coconut curry fish recipe has changed my opinion.

Seafood is my first love, I love everything seafood and I am so grateful that I do not have no allergies. I feel bad for people that are allergic to seafood, I believe that they are missing out on life.

As a result of my devotion to seafood, I knew I had to introduce more seafood recipes on this blog. I didn’t want to just share another simple seafood recipe but I wanted to do something different with it.

At first, I was very skeptic to even making this recipe. I know I may sound foolish but I am very particular when it comes to seafood, but thankfully I let my guard down for this. If you are like me and you have never tried curry fish then you need to try this now.

I think I’ve talked enough, but before diving into the recipe I thought I should share some TIPS & TRICKS with you guys first.

TIPS & TRICKS

  • Fish: Usually, any white fillet fish takes little to no time to cook, that is why I went for a regular cod fish. However, you can also use any regular white fish without the bones in them but I don’t recommend using whole fish nor salmon. Salmon may overpower this dish, at least that is what I believe.
  • Sauce: The sauce is very simple to put together. All you need is coconut milk, curry and some seasoning. Now I know we Caribbean people love a good pepper, but in this recipe I opted out of using the Scotch bonnet pepper and used pimento pepper. Before diving into the sauce, I like to start by cooking the fish then moving unto the sauce which only takes 5-7 minutes.
  • Seasoning: Just like the sauce, the seasoning I used in this recipe is very simple. I used the obvious seasoning which is curry, followed by bell peppers, pimento peppers, salt, black pepper and the coconut milk. That is it. This recipe couldn’t be more simple than this.
