Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Tear off 4 large pieces of foil, double them up, then place a fish fillet in the middle of each. Spread over the curry paste. Divide the coconut, lime zest and juice, and soy between each fillet. Bring up the sides of the foil, then scrunch the edges and sides together to make 2 sealed parcels.

  2. Put the parcels on a baking tray and bake for 10-15 mins. Tip the rice into a pan with plenty of water, and boil for 12-15 mins or until cooked. Drain well. Serve the fish on the rice, drizzle over the chilli sauce and scatter with sliced chilli. Serve with broccoli and lime wedges.

Didn't rate this. Too much lime.

This is a regular midweek meal in our house now, it's so fantastic. I tend to buy frozen fillets of cod/basa and I put the paste etc straight on them frozen and cook that way. Lovely with either just stir-fried veg or noodles/rice too.

Really delicious! I had no desicated coconut, so used the inside of a bounty... Worked surprisingly well!

Brilliant recipe! I've cooked this a few times now and it's always great, the fish is always lovely and succulent too. Healthy, quick, tasty - just what you want for a weekday meal.

Absolutely delicious - made this with red Thai curry paste. Make sure you pour all the juice from the fish over the rice :-)

Second time - used red curry paste this time - was OK but nowhere near as nice as with yellow curry paste (Bart brand both times). The yellow curry was a real "wow" unusual flavour, but the red curry was a bit bland. And if you like the yellow curry paste (or have an opened jar to use up) then I recommend "pumpkin curry with chickpeas" recipe on this site.
