Halibut in Red Curry Coconut Milk

Sherry Blizzard


I love curry, halibut and coconut milk. Why not marry all these flavors together? I did not grow up eating this kind of food so it is a stretch for me to even attempt to do it the justice that Thai food deserves. But this is a winner!

How to Make Halibut in Red Curry Coconut Milk


  1. This is what you will need.
  2. Add onions to a large/deep skillet and saute lightly in oil. I keep a bottle of Wolfgang Pucks Chili Oil on hand at all times. I use it for many things when I want to kick up the taste
  3. Add broth, coconut milk red curry and lime juice. Cook over med-high heat until bubbly and thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Add halibut pieces, cover with a lid and saute gently over medium heat (about 6-8 minutes or until fish is done).
  5. Remove fish to a serving dish/platter, add the spinach to the sauce and saute only until it is almost wilted.
  6. Add the cooked, sliced potatoes to the sauce and remove from heat. Let sit covered for 7 minutes to heat the potatoes. Pour sauce over fish and serve over brown rice. Garnish the whole affair with chopped cilantro.
  7. **In the interest of time, I used Seeds of Change already cooked brown rice (microwaveable). You can save yourself some serious change and make rice from scratch. That bag cost $6 compare that to unprepared rice! I won't do that again. White rice is also just as good--I just like the nutty flavor of brown.
