3 Ingredients Thai Fish Curry

Thai Fish Curry in Coconut Milk

Yet to try some authentic Thai delicacies? Then this is something not to be missed. Thai Fish Curry in Coconut Milk which was relished with some piping hot plain rice. Freshly extracted coconut milk made this fish curry more flavourful along with the freshly ground curry paste.

As I was in a hurry today due to major personal commitments hence came up with the idea of cooking this simple quick yet flavourful fish curry with fresh spice and herb paste. This Thai fish curry was in my must-make list since long, with a Thai Yellow Curry paste already up on Alka’s blog, it made me easier to cook this delicacy today within half an hour. (I do have another Yellow Curry paste recipe to be shared later)

3 basic things-seafood, meat or vegetables of choice, Thai curry paste, freshly extracted or store bought coconut milk and you are ready to cook the most versatile curry without too many ingredients.

  1. What a healthy weeknight meal. I’m always looking for new ways to cook with yellow curry paste. It always taste wonderful in a coconut based soup or stew.


    1. Ellie! I always stock the canned fish curries every month. I guess the freshly cooked curry is unbeaten always.
