Fishermans Curry

Fish Curry

This is very similar to the Masala Chicken curry recipe I posted recently in the sense it is a staple comfort food curry that I turn to often when I need something quick, spicy and warming. Served on top of fluffy pea pilau (made from basamati rice or brown rice if your trying to be healthy) it provides you a big bowl of yumminess. 

The main difference in the base of this curry I think is the sliced onions rather than finely diced which provide a bit more bite to the dish and also the fresh tomatoes which lighten it up making the tomato gravy more delicate perfect for seafood. I used fillets of Hake in this but any firm white fish that has been skinned and boned would work fine.
Bubba really enjoys eating this too, trying to get him used to spicy food the same as we eat at home so we now give him the same and if it is too spicy just add a bit of yoghurt to his food.
