  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1/2 brown onion sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1½ teaspoons garam masala
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1½ teaspoons turmeric powder
  • ½ cup chicken stock or water
  • 400 g blue eye cod  or snapper, skinned and cut into 4cm cubes
  • ¾ cup plain yoghurt or coyo (coconut yogurt)
  • 20 ml lime juice


  1. Heat olive oil in a small frying pan, add onion, ginger, garlic and salt and sweat over low-medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until onion is soft and starting to caramelize.
  2. Add spices and cook, stirring constantly for 1-2 minutes or until aromatic.
  3. Add stock or water and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Add fish to pan and stir gently to cover fish with sauce and simmer for 2 minutes.
  5. Add yoghurt and lime juice, remove from heat and stir gently.
  6. Serve with steamed basmati or brown rice and rocket salad or steamed greens.


If you choose to use vegetables (sweet potato, & chickpeas work well)  instead of fish,  simply add additional stock and cook sweet potato for around 10 minutes to soften.

This is awesome

I have made this recipe twice this week and both myself and my dinner guests loved it. On both occasions I used Blue Grenadier and added pumpkin at the same time as adding the stock. Also threw in a few frozen peas. As Lorna says it is quick, easy and extremely tasty!
Thanks Lorna
