Green fish curry recipe

68 ratings

Packed with vibrant green veg and an aromatic coconut sauce, this quick and easy Thai curry makes a great warming midweek dinner. A lot of the flavour and fragrance comes from using both the stalks and leaves of the coriander in the curry - the stalks are cooked in at the beginning to add a more mellow herby flavour, while the leaves add a freshness at the end.

  1. Heat the oil in a wok or large pan. Fry the courgettes over a high heat for 5 mins. Add the paste, coriander stalks and lime zest, and cook for 1-2 mins.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the peanut butter and coconut milk. Return to the heat, bring to the boil, then turn down and stir in the peas and nestle the fish into the sauce. Simmer for 6-8 mins, until the fish is cooked through.
  3. Season with 1-2 tsp fish sauce, the juice of half a lime and some black pepper. Serve with the rice and lime halves and garnish with the coriander and basil leaves.

Tip: Try scattering over a handful of crushed, roasted peanuts for extra crunch and flavour.
