Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the bread into the bowl of a food processor and whizz until you have rough crumbs. Add the curry paste and whizz again until the crumbs are fairly fine and evenly coated in the curry paste.
  2. Put the fish fillets onto a baking sheet or tray, season on both sides, then grate the zest of half the lime on top. Gently press the curry paste crumbs on top of the fish, then bake until the fish is cooked through and the topping crisp and golden, about 7 mins.

I used the remains of some Thai green curry paste and added some coriander and this worked well. Very nice!

Didn't have any thick fish fillets so I pressed thinner fish fillets with the lime juice into greased ramakin pots and covered them with the curried bread crumbs.Cooked them in the oven the same and served them with pilau rice. LOVELY

Quick, delicious and easy. Agree with other comments that this works better with a "punchier" curry paste than korma.... I served this with stir-fried greens, a great combination

Excellent and so easy. I used a Balti paste and roasted some tomatoes with it. Also tasted great cold flaked into a salad for lunch the following day.

We have now had this a few times and it is a really quick and easy dish to do, especially good when you rush in from work. The paste I used was a bit more spicy than a korma paste and it works just as well.

I was dubious about this, but loved the result!
