Delish Yellow Fish Curry

Up here in the NT my hubby catches a few fish….& I love to freeze some fillets to use for curries when there’s a little too much for a meal. I used mackerel….you can use snapper or another white fish. Throw in any ‘greens’ you have & serve with brown rice or quinoa.


  • 200ml coconut cream
  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 2 Tblsp fish sauce
  • 1 Tblsp coconut/palm sugar
  • 2 Tblsp lime juice
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 C snow peas/beans/broccoli
  • 500g Mackerel or white fish (boned), cut into 3cm cubes
  • coriander leaves to serve, along with cooked brown rice or quinoa

Curry Paste

  • 4 shallots, roughly chopped
  • 25g ginger, peeled & sliced
  • 4-5 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 red chillies
  • 1/2 bunch coriander
  • 2 lemongrass stalks, whites only
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 Tblsp olive/coconut oil


  1. For the curry paste, combine all ingredients in food processor except the oil & blend till finely chopped. Add just enough oil whilst mixing to form a paste.
  2. Heat a large wok over medium heat. Add the coconut cream top layer until it splits & looks oily. Add in the curry paste & stir-fry to release the fragrance. Add the remaining coconut cream & coconut milk. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the fish sauce, coconut sugar & lime juice (adjust to get the correct balance of sweet, salty & sour). Add the cherry tomatoes, greens & fish – simmer for 2-3mins or until the fish is cooked through.
  4. Scatter with coriander & enjoy with brown rice or quinoa.

Freeze leftovers for a day when you’re just a little too busy to cook a delicious meal – just like take-away…but not!!  🙂
