Red Curry Fish


  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup sambal oelek hot sauce
  • 2 pounds basa fillets cut into large cubes
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon ginger paste
  • 1 small onion chopped fine
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 14-ounce can coconut milk
  • 1 package Shirataki rinsed well


  • In a small bowl, mix the fish sauce, sambal hot sauce, 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and curry paste.
  • In a large frying pan, heat a tablespoon or so of avocado oil and a tablespoon of the sesame oil.
  • Once hot, add the curry paste mix, stirring frequently, and fry for a minute until fragrant.
  • Add the onion and let fry for about a minute.
  • Add the fish and gently toss to coat with the curry mix. Let fry for a couple minutes, gently tossing.
  • Add the coconut milk and soy sauce, and let simmer at a boil until the fish has cooked through.
  • Add the noodles (I kind of sprinkled in vs. dumping in one big blob), and let simmer for another minute.
  • Serve (at this point if you like cilantro, sprinkle some on top before serving)
