Green fish curry

Light, delicious and aromatic green fish curry with cod loins, courgette, green thai curry paste, tamarind paste, palm sugar and choy sum.

This dish is very easy and very quick to prepare. It’s also very light, full of flavours and very aromatic. To prepare it we used store bought curry paste, but you can also make your own. Cod loins need to be quite thick otherwise they might flake and break during cooking. Cod can be substituted with any white, firm fish as haddock etc.
Remember to remove choy sum’s stalks, only leaves should be added to the dish.
Serve in a small, deep bowls decorated with fresh coriander. This curry tastes great when served with steamed jasmine rice or warm naan bread.
