  • 2-3 shallots, minced
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 4 cod steaks
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp curry powder (or more to taste)
  • fresh ground salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat a large skillet. Melt coconut oil.
  2. Chop both peppers then add to skillet along with minced shallots and sauté for a couple of minutes.
  3. Add cod steaks and braise on both sides.
  4. Add coconut milk, turmeric and curry, salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Cover and simmer until fish is cooked (about 10 minutes). Don't overcook the cod or it will have a slightly chewy consistency.

This dish is wonderful paired with greens such as sautéd zucchini with garlic, braised chard, spinach or black kale.

    I love Cod and this take on it sounds delicious. Thank you for sharing.

  4. We have started eating a lot of cod and this sounds yummy. We don’t cook a lot with curry as it can become overwhelming (and my kids are picky) but the addition of the coconut would probably mellow out the curry to make it kid approved.

    I love eating fish. But I don’t like coconut and can’t eat peppers.

    • Not a recipe for you then Sarah. 🙁 Fish is such a wonderful food and scrumptious just drizzled with a little olive oil, with a bit of fresh garlic and cracked pepper, cooked on the barbecue 🙂

  10. Sounds like a good recipe to get picky eaters to try fish!

  11. Looks so easy to make and so yummy
