fish choo-chee

choo-chee is a style of thai curry similar to red curry but milder and sweeter. It works especially well with fish or prawns and this dish is simply a wonder.

~8 green beans, sliced into 3cm lengths
~200g firm white fish fillets (I used shark)
~1/4 red onion, sliced along the natural grain
~1 teaspoon red curry paste
~1/2 teaspoon yellow curry paste
~160mL coconut milk
~2 kaffir lime leaves
~2 teaspoons sugar
~2 teaspoons fish sauce
~squeeze lime juice

Blanch the beans in boiling water for 2-3 mins, then drain well.

In a frying pan, fry the fish over high heat, around 1 min on each side just to brown the fish off. Set aside. In the same pan, fry the onion over medium heat until just wilted. Add the curry pastes and fry off for 30 sec. Add the coconut milk and other ingredients. Bring to the boil and taste for flavour. If desired, add more lime or more sugar.

When sauce tastes as desired, add fish back in and stir through. Add the beans and cook for 2-3 mins, stirring to incorporate all the ingredients.

Serve immediately over steamed white rice.

Serves 1 as a main or 2 as an entree. Absolutely lovely. Calories – approximately 400 per serve.
