Coconut Red Curry Cod (or really Coconut Red Curry ANYTHING) is my new favorite dish! It’s simple to make, the flavors are incredible and, while it tastes so indulgent, it’s actually really good for you! With fresh ginger, garlic, shallot, tomatoes, cilantro, red curry paste, coconut milk, lime juice and wild cod, you can feel good about every bite!
Ever cooked with red curry paste? Red curry paste is a blend of red peppers, garlic, shallot, lemon grass, kaffir lime and other spices. To me, it has a very “Thai” flavor — a bit like Tom Yum Soup, if you’ve ever had that. In short: it’s delicious. You can find Thai Kitchen mild red curry paste on Amazon or at most grocery stores. I keep a jar (and a can of coconut milk) in my pantry for last-minute dinners. Keep some cod in your freezer, too, and you’ll be ready to whip this up whenever!
If you don’t like cod, feel free to switch it up! Shrimp is wonderful, as is chicken. For a vegan option, try chickpeas or tofu. You can also add more veggies — mushrooms and spinach are delightful — and I love dipping steamed broccoli into the leftover sauce. Serve with rice on the side!
