Caribbean Fish Curry Recipe
Recipe by Our Whimsical World

Serves 2

• 2 boneless cod fillets
• Juice of ½ a lemon
Schwartz Caribbean Jerk Seasoning (1 sachet, or make your own)
• 1tbsp coconut oil
• 3 spring onions, sliced
• 1tsp ginger, finely chopped
• 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
• 1 red chilli, seeds removed & finely chopped
• 1 red pepper, diced
• 1tsp fresh thyme
• 1/2 can of coconut milk (200g)
• 2 portions of the rice of your choice. Cook according to packet instructions – we like wild, jasmine or brown rice, all of which have different cooking times

1) Coat the cod fillets with the lemon juice & half of the Caribbean seasoning. Set aside to marinade.
2) In a large saucepan, heat the coconut oil on a medium heat. Cook the spring onions, ginger, garlic, chilli and pepper for 5 minutes, until the peppers are softened. Stir in the remaining Caribbean seasoning and thyme and cook for 1 minute.
3) Add the coconut milk to the pan, then simmer for 10 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Leave uncovered to allow the sauce to reduce slightly.
4) Add the marinated cod fillets to the sauce, making sure they are fully submerged. Continue to simmer with the saucepan lid on for 8-10 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily.
5) Serve on a bed of your chosen cooked rice, sprinkled with a little more fresh thyme.
