Fish Amok

Posted 2015-01-13 by noshnoshfollow
For the uninitiated, an 'amok' is a mild yellow Cambodian curry that is absolutely divine! It can be done with chicken as well, so feel free to substitute if you desire.



Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
1 kg firm white fish fillets
2 tsp coconut oil
2 x 400ml cans light coconut milk
2 red capsicum, cut into fine strips
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 bunch coriander, roughly chopped

Amok Paste
40g lemongrass, finely chopped
2 tsp garlic, crushed
2 kaffir lime leaves
1 tsp ginger, grated
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp palm sugar
3 spring onions, finely chopped

Method
  • In a food processor or blender, blitz the amok paste ingredients together until a smooth mixture has formed.
  • Over a medium flame, heat the coconut oil and paste mixture in a large pot for 30 seconds. Add the coconut milk and bring to a simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, cut the fish into small cubed pieces.

  • Transfer the fish and capsicum into the pot and gently poach until the fish is flaky and just cooked through.

  • Stir through the fish sauce, and then remove from the heat.

  • Serve on a bed of steamed rice and sprinkled with the chopped coriander.
