This is a stew which can be served with any
This stew is made with grilled/ fried fish and
coconut milk .
Good to serve with rice , stringhoppers ,rotis,
hoppers , bread….
When preparing fish like this, grilling or frying
lightly and then adding to curries , brings out a
lovely flavour .I want to share a tip with you
to get the exotic flavour of curries . Once you
have fried or grilled ￼seafood like this reserve a
tbsp of the fried oil,and pour over the finished
curry . This gives a good flavour and colour to
the curries .
