The perfect curry for fish lovers.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 bell peppers (1 red and 1 green), sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Fish Sauce, or salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Red Curry Paste
  • 1-13.5 oz can Coconut Milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 tilapia fillets, equal in size
  • Garnish: 1 lime, quartered 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  1. Heat oil in large skillet over a medium high heat. Add onions and peppers. Stir fry until tender-crisp.
  2. Add Fish Sauce and Curry Paste to vegetables. Cook, stirring constantly, until Curry Paste is dissolved. Pour in Coconut Milk and bring to a boil.
  3. Salt and pepper tilapia on both sides (to taste) and place in pan. Spoon vegetables and sauce on top of fish. Turn heat down to an active simmer. Cook 2-4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness. Fish is done when it's opaque all the way through and flakes easily with a fork.
  4. Serve immediately with lime and cilantro. This dish goes especially well with a side of Jasmine Rice or Rice Noodles.
