This garlic fish curry couldn’t be easier to make – it’s a simple, spicy and of course, garlicky.
Roby and I are observing Lent this month and so seafood has been on the menu a lot lately. While we’d be happy eating this shrimp curry every week, I figured it was time for something new. If you’re a big fan of garlic, you’re going to love this dish.
So, I can’t take credit for this recipe. While visiting my best gal pal’s house this past weekend (heyy, Chandni!), I spent a lot of time talking to her parents about food. Her dad told me how to prepare this simple garlic fish curry – and I’m so happy that I tried it! It’s effortless and tasty – a perfect combo.
This fish curry is made with plenty of garlic, organic diced tomatoes, serrano pepper and a handful of fresh curry leaves (no, you can’t replace this with curry powder – they’re two totally different things). I used avocado oil as my fat of choice, but feel free to use whatever you’d like. Also, if you don’t have a garlic press yet, get one… it’s a huge time saver.
The great thing about this dish is that you can whip it up for a last minute meal. If possible though, I suggest trying to make this a day in advance. I feel like fish curry always tastes better the next day – once the flavors have had time to marry. Either way – it’s going to taste great!
