Fish Curry Recipes
Fish Curry with Tamarind
Tangy tamarind, creamy coconut milk and a homemade spice paste give this grouper and vegetable curry many layers of deep flavor. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, follow Zak Pelaccio's lead and ask your fishmonger to give you a fish head or two to add to the pot.
Curried Cod and Mussels
Alain Ducasse cooks mussels, then removes the top half of each shell before serving them with haddock and a curry sauce with mussel jus.
Indian Coconut Fish Curry
Inspired by the cooking of the Malabar coast, this fish curry is tremendously flavorful, thanks to tamarind, coconut, garlic and ginger. Kingfish (a type of mackerel) is traditional, but this recipe calls for salmon, whose richness is delectable with the complex spices.
Creamy Indian-Spiced Halibut Curry
Vikram Sunderam makes his own spice blend with six ingredients, including green and black cardamom, cloves and mace.
Red Fish Curry
This signature dish of Kerala features firm chunks of kingfish in a deliciously spicy and tangy sauce flavored with tamarind. As a substitute for kingfish, look for other firm-fleshed fish, like the tilapia here.
Salmon Steaks with Curried Fennel-Wine Sauce
A copper pan works especially well here because the fennel is cooked until silky over long, low heat. F&W's Marcia Kiesel serves it in a curry-laced wine sauce over salmon.
Curried Tilapia with Cucumber Raita
A dollop of creamy raita is the perfect counterpoint for this richly spiced tilapia.
Salmon with Curried Spinach
A good choice for a dinner party, this dish looks as if you've gone to some trouble when in fact it's really easy. And everybody likes salmon.
