Caribbean Fish Curry Recipe
Caribbean Fish Curry, this tasty curry dish, is made with white fish, tomatoes, bell peppers, carrots, cabbage, potatoes, onions simmered in a light coconut curry sauce. The spices that bring out the deliciousness of the fresh fish and vegetables are cumin, curry powder and garlic. In the end, a good splash of fresh lime juice adds a zesty flavour to the creamy fish curry.
This Caribbean-inspired fish curry dish is light, healthy and super flavourful.
What fish is best for fish curry?
The best fish is a firm-textured fish with moist, white flesh, delicate and mild in flavour. This is why I chose healthy cod or snapper, also a healthy white fish option. Both are ideal for curry dishes because the fish will not fall apart.
Let’s jump right into the details…
To start, sauté onions with garlic in coconut oil. Then stir in the spices until they become aromatic. This takes just a few seconds, be careful not to burn the spices.
Follow with adding the diced tomatoes and coconut milk. Bring the coconut sauce to a gentle simmer. You don’t want to boil the sauce.
Once the sauce starts to simmer, add the prepared veggies…bell peppers, potatoes, carrots and cabbage and season with salt. The veggies are cooked covered in the sauce and over low heat.
Once the veggies are cooked but firm to bite, add the fish pieces and fresh lime juice. Continue cooking until the fish is fork-tender. Whitefish does not take very long to cook. Depending on the size of your fish pieces, the fish should take only about 5 minutes to cook.
When I serve this Caribbean-style fish curry dish, in the end, I like to add plenty of fresh herbs. The herbs bring extra freshness to this healthy fish dinner dish.
What to serve with fish curry?
My favourite way to serve this insanely delicious fish curry stew is with simple white basmati rice. Because the two are meant to be together. But I have served it over short cut pasta and converted the Caribbean recipe to an Italian dish. Either way, it is so good!
Keeping the fish curry dinner low-carb…
If you follow a low-carb diet, I recommend adding a high fiber salad like the cabbage and fennel citrus salad; the more fiber, the less net carbs because fiber negates carbs. I would also use only a small potato in the curry and add extra cabbage.
If you are looking for a new fish recipe, you will enjoy this Caribbean-inspired fish curry dish. This simple to prepare healthy fish dinner takes about 30 minutes from start to the table, making it an easy healthy weeknight meal for your family. Enjoy!
