Oh I love this. It’s leftovers time again!
I threw this fish curry together in just a couple of minutes to be very honest. Because we are going on a long trip to Brazil shortly followed by crossing the Atlantic ocean by ship. At the end of our trip we will stay in the Canary Islands for a couple of weeks as well where we have a second home in the Spanish sun…
So needless to say that it is about time to dig up what edible stuff there is still left in my freezer and fridge. It is also a good opportunity to clean them out entirely, so I can give those hard working machines a well deserved rest while we are gone. Plus it also saves us electricity and money.
Creamy Fish Curry Recipe with Thai Yellow Curry
So let’s see what we have here.
Half a package of Thai yellow curry paste, frozen king prawns, bits of frozen pollock, half a fresh zucchini, half a ripe mango (at least what was left after making a spicy mango salsa with it yesterday) and a tin of creamy coconut milk.
Well I guess that it sounds like we’ll have a Thai flavored fish curry recipe tonight! I added some grated coconut for texture, optional of course but highly recommendable! The subtle cooked prawns, fish and crunchy zucchini are a prefect match for the sweeter mango and coconut milk.
Just don’t make this fish curry too spicy though or you will not taste all the subtle flavors!

- 9 oz white fish (250 g)
- 6 prawns peeled and deveined
- ½ small fresh zucchini peeled and diced
- 1 small fresh mango peel and diced
- 2 tbsp yellow curry paste
- 1 cup coconut milk (240 ml)
- 2 tbsp grated coconut
- fresh mint or coriander, chopped
- sunflower oil
- 1 tsp fish sauce
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- Pour a little sunflower oil in a large non-stick pan and place it over medium heat. Add the yellow curry paste once the oil is hot.
- Stir fry the curry paste for a minute until fragrant. Then pour in the coconut milk.
- Stir well again. Let the curry sauce boil for 2 minutes over medium-high heat until the curry paste lumps have totally melted into the coconut milk. Dice the fish into bite-size pieces and add them to the sauce in the pan.
- Cook the fish for 3 minutes. Add the grated coconut, half of the lime juice and half of the fish sauce to the curry.
- Stir well. Add the peeled prawns, the diced mango and the zucchini.
- Stir the curry well. Put a lid on the pan and let the curry cook for another 5 to 6 minutes. Check the seasoning and add extra fish sauce or lemon juice to taste if necessary. Scoop the fish curry into bowls. Sprinkle with freshly chopped mint or coriander. Serve hot.
