Thai Fish Curry with Coconut Cream : Great tasting and Low Carb


Mid-week already! Whatever happened to Monday and Tuesday? Our days passed by happily and quietly, the temperatures were warmer and Spring was definitely in the air, perhaps a sign of better things to come, we hope so.

But as it's now mid-week, how about considering this creamy oven-bake curry for dinner today! It is a great way to cook fish, nicely seasoned and flavoured (as you can see from the ingredients), and it's quick and easy to make. Who knows it may just become a new favourite in your menu plans.

Ingredients
Serves Four : 10g carbs per serving
1 tbsp coconut oil for greasing the baking dish
650 g salmon, boneless fillets or white fish (e.g. cod, haddock, halibut), in pieces
salt and pepper
28 g butter or ghee
2 tbsp red curry paste or green curry paste
475 ml coconut cream
120 ml (8 g) fresh cilantro, chopped (also known as coriander/dhania)
450 g cauliflower or broccoli

Tip
If you can't find coconut cream in your grocery store you can use canned coconut milk, but then use two cans. Let the cans sit in the refrigerator for a few hours or over-night. Carefully open the cans and scoop out the coconut cream that will have solidified on top.

Don't use the thinner coconut water from the can for this recipe, but don't throw it out either. You can save it and use in smoothies and other refreshing drinks.

Instructions

Cilantro is a herb with wide delicate lacy green leaves and a pungent flavour. The seed of the cilantro plant is known as coriander. Although cilantro and coriander come from the same plant, their flavours are very different and cannot be substituted for each other. (Some countries refer to the cilantro as coriander, so any references to "fresh coriander" or "coriander leaves" refer to cilantro.) It can be easily confused with flat-leaf parsley in appearance, so be sure to sniff carefully. Look for a bunch with un-wilted leaves in medium green. Found fresh year round in most markets.

the flavours sound good but I don't like fish - if I ever have a fish fanatic for dinner though, this would be something I could make them :) looks healthy and colourful.

I think I will make a modified version of this. It looks delicious and I need some change in how I make my fish dishes. I mainly eat fish and haven't used much imagination.
