    Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.

    Absolutely delicious!!! But I used coconut milk instead of cream and used green curry paste. Everyone I have cooked this for loves it!  -  27 Jan 2015


    Easy and very very tasty. I used straight up coconut milk and green curry paste and there was more than enough liquid to keep the fish moist in the oven and on our plates.  -  08 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent recipe! Be careful not to overdo the curry, needs just the right amount to not overpower the flavor of the fish. Meal turn out great, went well with brown rice.  -  07 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
