Red Curry Snapper with Bok Choy

red curry red snapper

This recipe was found tucked away with all my cookbooks…it was ripped out from a Women’s Health magazine from April 2009! Either I have major problems getting rid of recipes or I don’t clean out my cookbook cabinets, like ever! Regardless, I’m happy that this wasn’t tossed away – it was completely worth the wait!  The spice from the red curry paste mingles with the creamy coconut milk and delivers tons of flavor in this dish!  The fish & veggies soak up this goodness & it leaves you wanting more…the hubs is asking for it again tonight! And let’s not forget to mention that all & all this recipe took under 15minutes to make!

Let’s get to it…

  1. In a small sauce pan combine 1T red curry paste, 1C light coconut milk & 1/2T brown sugar – cook/stir on low heat til sauce thickens (~10minutes) then add juice from half a lime – set aside
  2. Dice up one head of bok choy – set aside
  3. Spray cooking oil on a skillet, add 2 red snapper fillets (skin side down), season with salt and pepper – cook until golden brown (~4-5minutes)
  4. Once golden, flip & cook until the fish flakes (~3-4minutes/test it with a fork) – remove fish & set aside
  5. Immediately add the bok choy, 1C sliced shiitake mushrooms & juice from half a lime into the same pan where fish was cooking – cook for 3minutes max (depends on how crunchy you want your veg)

To serve, divide the veggies between two plates, place filet on top of each & drizzle red curry sauce around the fish. Enjoy!

    • Hey Holly, It’s a hard one to find. Typically in the Asian section (if your grocery store does that – i went to our local Whole Foods) or it would most likely be located by the soy sauce. If anything try Amazon, always works & delivers the next day -HA!
