My Cramped Kitchen; Thai Fish Curry

A simple and fairly quick dish with a powerful punch.

1y ago

I should have probably researched what constitutes a Thai curry before making this, but ah well. It's a dish idea I stole from work, and just kinda improvised a recipe for. But some research shows that for it to be a Thai curry it's got to have coconut milk in it, but I'm allergic to coconut milk. So what I've really made is a curry with some fish in it. Here's the video. And here's the recipe;

Thai Fish Curry

Punchy and flavourful this dish is perfect all year round and hugely variable in what you can chuck in.

Prep time15min
Cook time20min
Total time35min


  • Two fillets of white fish, cod, basa, haddock, whatever you can get
  • A handful of chopped mushrooms
  • Two chopped spring onions
  • Two finely chopped finger chillis
  • One finely chopped carrot
  • One chopped brown onion
  • Any other chopped vegetables you want to add
  • Chilli paste
  • Curry paste
  • Crushed chillis
  • Vegetable seasoning
  • Tomato purée
  • One tin of chopped tomatoes/passata
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Olive Oil


  1. Heat up a wok with some oil in the bottom. You want it on about 2/3rds heat.
  2. Once up to temp, dump in all the vegetables and fry them off. Effectively stir frying them.
  3. Once they are nearly done season with the chilli paste, curry paste, salt and pepper, and veg seasoning if you've got it.
  4. Then top with the tinned tomatoes and purée, stir through.
  5. Lay the fish fillets on top and cover. If you want to you can spoon a bit of the curry onto the fish. Season the fish with a twist of ground pepper and salt.
  6. While the fish cooks, prep your side dish. For me, rice with a cut shoot of lemon grass.
  7. Serve with a cold beer, Singha is a good pairing here.
  8. Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Basa is a good choice here as it's commonly found in the far east, so makes for a rather authentic dish!

  • You probably could have used plain greek yogurt or maybe a heavy cream since you can't use coconut milk
