Absolutely delicious. I used Korma paste and haddock. Didn't add any stock so the sauce was just perfect. Will definitley make again and may even try it with chicken!

This was a winner! I can't get my husband to eat fish at all. Told him we were having a fish curry for dinner and his face visibly fell! Followed the recipe as above and added some frozen prawns, frozen peas and a couple of tablespoons of half fat creme fraiche. Not so low fat but he thought it was delicious. I'm gradually winning him over to fish but it is an up hill struggle!!

Extremely quick and tasty. Much easier than making traditional Indian fish curry using a list of spices. I also added some okra and eggplant like my mum uses in her fish curry and it's a great way to soak up the sauce. Takes a little more cooking time to soften the veg, but worth. I also use flake which a firm texture. Cheers

This was absolutely delicious! Will definately be making again! Let it simmer for atleast 30mins before adding the fish to add more flavour - would recommend if you have time. Found that by adding all the stock made it a little too water but apart from that it was very tasty! :)

A really tasty dish and easy to make, used Rogan Josh paste and added fresh coriander, my first cookery attempt was enjoyed by all. Fresh tomatoes sounds good Alison, will try next time.

It was OK, but i felt the sauce was too thin and could've done with more depth. Some fresh coriander might be the answer but, as the cod I bought was £5, I won't be trying this again soon!

this was really easy, fast and nice! I loved it with a little rice and a naan. Made it a few times already and you can easily change the recipe a little bit by adding prawns, other fish, ckicken instead of fish, other vegetables, curry paste.. Really delicious!!

I haven't made this yet but intend to do so soon. What I am wondering is, would it be nice with some plain yoghurt stirred in towards the end of cooking? I'll comment again when I've tried it.

Smells good, tastes good, quick & easy to make. Gently on the spicy side of life, thou it depends on the paste you use (we went for Patak's mild). Will definitely make again, tempted to try with chips!

I made it this aftnoon and it was really easy and delicious. I will definately make this again.
Oh, and I didn't use the stock, I just read about it in one of the comments but I did't miss it at all. I added a little can of cocnutmilk (just for taste)and some black eyed peas (I wanted to use chickpeas or white beans but I didn't have any) But it tasted very very nice!

I made the alternative Mediterranean version of this and it was excellent! I used some coley and some "white fish" so it was extremely economical too.

I found the combination of stock, curry paste and the fish made the dish very salty. If I was to do it again I would add more/different fish to add more flavour as the fish was lost in the spices.

Have made the pesto version of this a couple of times and it is really quick, easy and tasty for midweek. An ideal way to use up that almost-empty jar of pesto in the fridge!
