Thai Green Curry Fish
I tagged this recipe to make for a game that I play on Zaar it was absolutely delicious. I made this as a main course but I also made another of this chef’s recipes for a starter that night, which I will post soon. It was a very easy recipe to prepare and we just loved all the flavours that came through from the curry paste to the fresh herbs used. I added red pepper, zucchini and snow peas as the vegetables and it all went together really well with just the right amount of heat for us. To read more reviews on this recipe pleas click here.

2 Tablespoons oil
1 Large onion, sliced into wedges
1 Clove garlic
2 Teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 (50 g) Packet green curry paste
1 (400 ml) Can coconut milk (I use light)
1 Cup water
1 Tablespoon lime juice
1 Tablespoon fish sauce
600g Fish, a white firm,strong flavoured fish is best,cut into about 2 1/2 cm chunks
1 Green chilies, sliced
400g Assorted green vegetables (we used capsicum, snow peas, zucchini. You could also use bok choy, asparagus, green beans, brocolli)
3 Spring onions, finely sliced
1/2 Cup chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
1/2 Cup basil leaves (packed)


1. Heat the oil in a large wok, and fry the onion, ginger and garlic for about 5 minutes or until softened.

2. Add the green curry paste, and fry for another 2 minutes.

3. Add the coconut milk, water, lime juice and fish sauce and bring to the boil.

4. Reduce to a simmer and add the fish, and any of the longer-to-cook vegetables you have chosen and cook for about 5 minutes (I added the beans along with the fish).

5. Also add about half the fresh coriander.

6. Add the remaining softer vegetables, and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, being careful not to overcook the fish, or knock it around too much as you stir through the vegetables.

7. Stir through the fresh herbs gently.

Serve in deep bowls over steamed rice, scattered with the fresh spring onions.

Thai Duck Red Curry
This is a great curry recipe and one that I will be making again for sure. I have never used duck in a curry before and this was a wonderful way to prepare it. I did ours with whole duck breasts, which I cooked skin side down first to render the fat and then finished them off breast side down in the sauce and they were cooked perfectly. I sliced the breasts and served over rice topped with the wonderful curry sauce. I am the first person to review this recipe and I have not made any changes to the original recipe but to view this recipe please click here.
