cookbook challenge: fish curry with courgettes

This time I wanted to try something with fish. I chose Lake Victoria perch for this dish because it has a good taste. It was really easy and fast to make because the fish has not much cooking time and the spices suited very well. It was quite a fresh dish but I like it^^

Fish Curry with courgettes

Incrediants (4 portions)
800 g fish filet, sliced in pieces
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbs light soy sauce
½ bunch of spring onions, sliced in rings
3 stalks Thai basil
3 kaffir lime leaves, sliced in stripes
2 courgettes, cut in slices
400 ml coconut milk
3 tbs oil
2-3 tsp green curry paste


Marinate the fish with salt, lemon juice and soy sauce for 30 minutes.

Heat oil in a deep pan. Take the fish out of the marinade and fry it for 4 minutes in the oil. Add coconut milk, curry paste and the fish marinade and let it cook. Then add spring onions, basil, lime leaves and courgettes and let it cook another 4 minutes. Taste with salt.

Serve it with basmati rice.
