Fragrant Fish Curry

Fragrant Fish Curry
Before the Thermomix came into my world, I didn't make a lot of curries.  To be frank, I couldn't really be bothered.  Now of course, it's so easy that we'll have curry quite often and I love the fact that I can make my own paste quickly and easily.

I made the Yellow Curry Paste from Tenina's book, For Food's Sake, the other day and thought of a couple of different ways to use it up. 

This is an adaption from one of my favourite recipe books, Coming Home To Eat, by the beautiful Jude Blereau.  I had the pleasure of meeting Jude last weekend and she is even more lovely in person than I imagined.  She reiterated the importance of fish in childrens' diets, and both my boys loved this curry, so I think this one will be making a regular appearance on our menu plan.
