I'm always looking for ways to get more fish. But...how do you prepare it?

It's like I avoided fish for years because it would always turn out to be bland, a pain to make, or a total kitchen disaster.

Then I came across fish curry. Fast, easy, and you can use ANY type of white fish... even shrimp. It's also a little different out-of-the-ordinary and exciting.

Serves 4-6

Prep time: 40 minutes

This easy fish curry is perfect for a busy night when you want something nutritious and tasty that doesn’t come from a box.

It’s loaded with fresh veggies for fiber and nutrients, gets a hefty dose of antioxidants from curry powder, and heart healthy fats from the coconut milk.

You can use any type of white fish you like here, or even substitute shrimp if you’d like.

It can be eaten as a stew or served over cauliflower rice for a more traditional, but low carb version of your favorite takeout curry dish.
