Fish In Tamarind and Red Curry Sauce (Plah Tote Laht Nahm Prik Makahm)

This is a Thai dish..it’s hot and spicy with a little tang courtesy of the tamarind paste- I have a jar of it that I seldom use and it comes in handy for this fish recipe.

Whole fish can be used for this dish, I would have used it but my family wants fillet of fish because it’s so much easier to eat and cooks faster too. I do miss whole fried fish, I love to fry it until the skin gets crispy, maybe next time..

I love recipes like this, it’s fast, easy and so yummy..spicy-hot yummy! 🙂

Ingredients
1 cup cornstarch flour (makes the fish crispy)
A few grinds of Pepper and sea salt
2 Pounds Fish Fillet* (a whole fish can be used)
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 onion, minced ( the original recipe didn’t have this, I just added it cause I ran out of garlic)
3 cloves garlic, minced ( I ran out of garlic so I used granulated garlic and added it towards the end)

1 Tablespoon Tamarind Paste mixed with –
1/2 Cup Water
6 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
1/4 Cup Soy Sauce

Directions
1. Mix cornstarch with the salt and pepper and dredge fish fillets in it.
