This white fish curry recipe could be made with any meaty white fish such as haddock, cod or coley. Here I have used halibut which is my favourite but a bit on the expensive side.
Halibut and other meaty fish lend themselves well to curry flavours as they can stand up to the spices. That said, fish is delicious on its own with a simple squeeze of lemon and salt and pepper.
So it is important with this recipe to ensure the white fish fillets are cooked whole. You then get to enjoy the fish and dip it in just enough sauce to make it the perfect combo.
Where is this recipe from?
This curry recipe was introduced to me by a friend who was originally from Goa in southern India. He has a restaurant just outside of Birmingham and this white fish curry, usually made with cod there, is never off his menu.
After learning the recipe I travelled to Goa and got to try first hand white fish curries that are very similar and equally as amazing.
Make this recipe your own.
White fish curries can vary greatly in flavour and heat. They are often quite mild but can also be fiery hot.
This recipe was developed with to be mildly spiced but how hot it is is down to you. Feel free to add more chillies and/or chilli powder. You could also omit the chillies if you like.
Place with the sauce, adjust as you wish and you will end up with the perfect white fish curry for you.
