Ingredients

  • 4 x 200g firm white fish fillets 7oz
  • 1 small can crushed pineapple 220g/8oz
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 cm piece ginger
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 5 tbsp Thai Red Curry Paste Homemade or store bought
  • 1 can coconut cream (400ml/13oz)
  • 250 ml /1 cup fish stock or vegetable
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 red chilli
  • handful of fresh coriander
  • handful of thai basil
  • handful of fresh mint
  • 1 tbsp crispy fried shallots
  • 1 lime
  • Jasmine rice (to serve)

Instructions

  • Place the fish in a shallow non-metal dish. Pour over the crushed pineapple and turn the fish gently.
  • Sprinkle each fillet with a pinch of salt and set aside. (see notes)
  • Peel and mince the garlic and ginger (I use a microplanes grater)
  • Heat the oil in a large sauté pan (one with a lid) over a low heat.
  • Add the garlic and ginger and cook gently until it gets aromatic
  • Stir in the curry paste and then cook for 3 minutes until the oil starts to separate from the paste.
  • Pour in the coconut cream and the fish stock then bring it to a simmer.
  • Remove the fish from the pineapple and place the fillets into the sauce in a a single layer.
  • Place the lid on the pan, lower the eat and cook for 6-8 minutes until the fish is just cooked through.
  • Whilst the fish is cooking roughly chop the fresh herbs together and slice the red chilli
  • Serve the fish topped with a handful of herbs and a sprinkling of the chilli and crispy onions.
  • Place the lime wedges on the table so everyone can add it as they wish.
  • Serve with jasmine rice (optional)

Notes

Don't leave the fish in the pineapple for more than 5 minutes, it will start to break down and go mushy!
