A quick, light, delicious Thai coconut curry you can whip up in less than 30 minutes. We eat ours with riced cauliflower, but steamed jasmine rice is another great option as well.

    Thank you for sharing these delicious and healthy meals! This is something I’m really looking forward to trying , just curious , fish sauce has always really intimidated me, a brand I bought in the grocery store was really not good and ruined a dinner I added it to. Do you have a brand that you could recommend that you like?

    Definitely make this! Due to an unfortunate turn of refrigerator events, my white fish went bad but thankfully we used some frozen shrimp to great success. I didn’t veer much from the recipe first go around other than not being able to locate lemongrass. Now I add whatever vegetable/meat needs to be used up and just plop everything in at once after toasting the curry for less fuss and it still turns out great!! Sometimes I add a little red chili flake for extra heat. Such a good and tasty way to avoid food waste in my house. Highly recommend! Of of the best and easiest recipes I’ve found on the Internet ever!

    Wow! I made this last night for my family and a couple friends. It was so super easy and my 7 and 9 year old liked it (that’s huge!). It was a huge hit with everyone. Thanks for making me look good!

    I made this last night and it was so good! Very healthy too! Love the Chris Cooks series!

  5. Victoria Kennedy says:

    Looks really yummy – but I have one question…the fish cooks in only 5 minutes? Really?

  6. Julie Etheredge says:

    Do you make your own cauliflower rice or do you buy a certain brand?

  7. Cathy says:

    Yum! This looks so tasty. Thanks for sharing your dairy-free recipes. My daughter is allergic to dairy so I’m constantly trying to find food that we can all eat as a family. I don’t cook fish often but this sounds straight forward so I will definitely give this a try!
