From My Kitchen: Green Thai Curry Flounder

I don’t know about you, but I think I’m still full from Thanksgiving. And Christmas is right around the corner, Lord have mercy. I’m trying to eat as light as possible between these two holidays, so I don’t tip the scale at an ungodly number. Fish is always good for the mind and body, but finding a new recipe is not always easy. I happen to love Thai Curry, so I made it with fish! It was not only super delicious, but also fast and easy. This will be my go-to recipe between the holidays from here on. I hope you follow suit, and give this a try!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 pound fresh flounder (or other white fish)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp green (or red) curry paste
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 (13oz) can coconut milk
  • juice of half a lime
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • chopped cilantro

In a skillet, add the butter and melt it over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and cook until tender, 3 – 5 minutes. Add curry paste and cook, while stirring, for 1 minute.

Stir in fish sauce, coconut milk, ginger and lime juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the flounder and stir. Continue cooking for another 5 – 7 minutes. Add chopped cilantro on top, and serve with rice of your choice.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
