Easy Thai Curried Cod Recipe

Easy Thai Curried Cod Recipe
Thai curry has become a favorite in recent years, and red coconut curry seems to be the most popular in restaurants. There is just something wonderful about the slightly spicy red curry/coconut milk sauce over jasmine rice that is addicting. The following Thai Curried Cod is an easy version that the whole family will love. While cod isn’t a popular fish in Thailand, it turns out moist and flaky when baked in the curry sauce and, since it’s a mild white fish, takes on the flavors of the curry. If you like, you can substitute any mild white fish such as rockfish, tilapia, or even halibut (if you can afford it). While most authentic Thai curries don’t contain onions, they are fabulous when baked in this sauce so I add lots of them.

6 Servings

1 1/2 - 2 pounds cod fillets
