  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp Madras curry paste (we used Patak's)
  • 400g can tomato



    A member of the nightshade family (along with aubergines, peppers and chillies), tomatoes are in…

  • 200ml vegetable stock
  • sustainable white fish fillets, skinned and cut into big chunks
  • rice or naan bread


  1. Heat the oil in a deep pan and gently fry the onion and garlic for about 5 mins until soft. Add the curry paste and stir-fry for 1-2 mins, then tip in the tomatoes and stock.

  2. Bring to a simmer, then add the fish. Gently cook for 4-5 mins until the fish flakes easily. Serve immediately with rice or naan

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.

Added some green pepper and sweet potato, it was delicious!

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!

delicious. I used balti curry paste instead of madras and I also added ginger, mushrooms, yellow peppers, curry leaves and prawns. Next time i will add some chilli!

Yummy and easy to make. I used some fresh tomatoes instead of tinned.

Also added some veg just before the veg. Very nice.

I've made this twice and guests loved it. Put the fish in right at the end and it stays really tender.

This was so simple to make and very tasty.
Will definitely make it again.

I didnt add the stock but included prawns, mushrooms and some finely chopped ginger. I then added some fresh roughly chopped coriander just before serving and it went down a real treat. Quick, easy, healthy and even the kids loved it!!

Really tasty- I agree that the sauce was a little thin so will thicken more for next time but great for a low fat tasty dish and very easy

We all really enjoyed this recipe, even my sons who normally cringe at the idea of fish for dinner! I added a little coconut milk at the end of cooking and thought it went quite well. Would definitely make it again.

This was ok but I don't think you need to add stock. Next time I'll miss that out and add some prawns.
