Fish curry with a Mediterranean Twist





This fish recipe is similar to the consistency and taste of a stew.  Not much sour, the Mediterranean spice that has gone into the making is rosemary. The addition of coconut milk keeps the Kerala base of a fish curry. Tastes good with rice as well as bread.

the recipe

Fish fillets or flat soft fish (pearlspot or pomfret) - 8 pieces
Onion - 1
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Green chilly - 1
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp + oil for frying
Rosemary - 1 tsp
Tomato - 2
Coconut Milk / Milk  - 1 cup
Salt - to taste

ingredients for the marinade

Lemon juice - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric - 2 pinch

the method

Marinate the fish with the ingredients for the marinade for about ten minutes and shallow fry it.

In another pan heat 2 tbsp oil and stir in the onion. When translucent, add ginger and green chilly. Sauté for a minute and add the tomatoes. Stir till the tomatoes are soft. Add the rosemary and pepper powder and stir for ten seconds and then add the coconut milk / milk. Add salt and mix well. Add the fried fish pieces and simmer for ten minutes. Done.

Oddly enough, everytime I've had Kerala fish curry, its always the bright red version, with lots of powdered chili - never the coconut milk version.
