I’m always looking for new recipes as I get bored of eating the same thing all the time. Ok, the ingredients may always be the same but let’s put a bit of imagination into our food and come up with new recipes. And this is how I came across this fish curry recipe.
Last time I’ve been to Portugal (around June), I was busy taking care of my mother after she had an operation. And while I was around the house doing shores, Food Network was on TV all the time 🙂 One day, Jamie Oliver was explaining how boring fish can become if we don’t find new ways to cook it. And guess what he did? Fish curry!!! It looked so good and so easy to make that I couldn’t help but to stop and follow all the steps.
I love Jamie Oliver! I started following his story and recipes when I was living in the UK. I find him very down to hearth and he makes all his dishes look so easy and tasty. So every time I have a chance I watch his programs. I have 4 of his books and a lot of his recipes saved on my computer. As usual, I don’t follow the recipe completely, I like to give it my twist (I changed a few ingredients to suit our taste and what I had in the cupboards). But if you are a Jamie fan you will recognize some of his work in my cooking 🙂
His recipe calls for a couple of shop bought ingredients, not the usual “let’s make it all at home”. You’ll need Thai curry paste (or any other curry paste of your liking), and I find that the one from the supermarket makes life so much easier. You’ll need coconut milk and I don’t even think about getting this any other way that in a can! But all the rest it’s fresh and delicious as I always try to make my food. So I hope you really enjoy this dish because it was a real success at home 🙂
