This curry can be made with any firm white fish and if you make the sauce in advance and refrigerate overnight (or freeze until needed) it can be made very quickly.

  1. Add all the spices and oil to a heavy-based pan and fry lightly for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add onion and cook for 5 mins until soft. 
  3. Add in the tomato puree, tomatoes, coconut milk and sugar and simmer for 15 minutes until the mixture thickens and reduces a little. At this stage, you can refrigerate or freeze the sauce until ready to use.
  4. Gently add the fish (try not to stir too much or less firm-fleshed fish will fall apart) and cook for a further 10 minutes, until the fish is just cooked through, but not overcooked.
  5. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve with rice.
