Here's a Brazilian recipe that's hugely popular amongst those that live by the coast. While the key ingredient is the freshest of fish, the huge flavour is added through the jalapenos, cumin seeds and turmeric root among other spices which we have pounded into a fragrant paste.  This is what brings a warm, spicy and sweet flavour to the coconut milk while the aromatic garnish completes the dish by providing a lovely texture with desiccated coconut and dried red chilli.

Ian - Jan 31, 2019

Very nice

Jane - Jan 30, 2019

Tasty and spicy. I used chunky cod fillet cut up into chunks. Not a fan of coconut milk generally as find it a bit slimy. Family liked it.

Wendy - Jan 30, 2019

One of our favorites. Nice and spicy and gives me more confidence to cook with fish

N - Jan 29, 2019

Nice but not my favourite. Lots of others that I love . Not in my top 10

Kathryn - Jan 28, 2019

Made with salmon rather than white fish, was lovely. Quite spicy but I really enjoyed it.

Alexis - Jan 26, 2019

Great flavours. Took it in a self catering holiday so we had a nice meal in one night and it was perfect with a nice glass of white wine.

Marian - Jan 25, 2019

Not for us

James - Jan 23, 2019

Very very nice. One of my favourites

Eve - Jan 22, 2019

my husband loves fish but I'm not too keen on fish curries, stews etc. However we chose this to try and change my mind but for me it was just not to my taste. Maybe with chicken I would have liked it more.

Peter - Jan 21, 2019

Loved this curry even tried it using chicken as an alternative. Lovely coconut flavour with a nice hot kick.

Stephen - Jan 20, 2019

Bit too hot for my wife

Delicious, did with prawns instead of chicken. Tastes great

Kay - Jan 16, 2019

So tasty! Really enjoyed this dish. Used cod but would maybe use some additional prawns with it too next time. Good amount of spice and good portion size as well.

Elana - Jan 16, 2019

Loved this

Adrian - Jan 13, 2019

Wouldn’t be my favourite dish! Not spicy enough or deep enough flavour for my taste

Barbara - Jan 12, 2019

Used left-over Christmas turkey -very good!

Edward - Jan 10, 2019

Loved it.

Kellu - Jan 10, 2019

My favourite dish

Tom - Jan 09, 2019

Fantastic, did add a good pinch chilli flakes as I like spice but it didn’t damage the flavours

Jodie - Jan 08, 2019

Delicious sauce, decent spice level - I usually add more cayenne to all dishes but this was pleasantly spicy. I'm not a huge fish fan, but it was nice with a selection of cod and salmon. Boyfriend loves fish so rates this dish highly.
