…for fish curry with cauliflower & paprika:
Peel off onion & garlic & chop finely. Peel ginger & also finely chop it. Divide the cauliflower into fine florets or roughly chop it into bite-sized pieces with a knife. Core the peppers & cut into bite-sized pieces. Wash fish fillets, pat dry & cut into cubes or small pieces.
Heat up a large pan or wok with a good dash of oil, add onions, garlic & ginger to the pan & sweat for 2 – 3 minutes over medium heat, turning occasionally. Next, add a heaping teaspoon of sambal oelek & sweat briefly while stirring.
Then stir in the chopped cauliflower, the bell pepper pieces, 400 milliliters of vegetable stock, 1 can of chopped tomatoes & 1 can of coconut milk & bring the curry to a boil, then simmer for 10 – 12 minutes over low to medium heat until the cauliflower has reached the desired consistency.
When done put the fish fillets in the pan, stir everything well so that the fish is completely covered with liquid & allow to simmer gently until the fish is done. Finally, season with a good pinch of salt & pepper as well as lime juice & fish sauce & serve the curry together with a portion cooked rice on deep plates & garnish with a little chopped coriander or parsley.
