Coconut Curry Bowl with Cod

Cod & Coconut Curry Bowl with Brown Rice: Flaky cod, gently poached in a lively sauce that emphasizes bold flavors of piquant mustard seeds, garlic, and curry powder. Smooth, sweet coconut milk perfectly soothes the spice of the sauce, which is absorbed by a bed of soft brown rice.

There are 5 simple steps for this recipe. First we chop garlic, sweet peppers and cherry tomatoes. Next we make brown rice and put to the side. Sauté vegetables and add curry coconut milk and finally the fish. Cook for about 10 minutes and you have a wonderful meal.

Prepare the ingredients:

Peel 2 cloves of garlic and roughly chop. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Halve the peppers lengthwise, then thinly slice. Halve the cherry tomatoes. Slice lime into quarters and place to the side. Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.

Step one cook the rice:

Fill a small pot with salted water; place on high heat to boil. Add the rice to the pot of boiling water and cook, uncovered, 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly.

Next we cook some vegetables:

In a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high. Add the chopped garlic and mustard seeds (carefully, as the mustard seeds may pop as they cook). Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add the prepared peppers and tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, until softened and the tomatoes begin to break down.

Now we start making the curry & cooking the fish:

To the pan, add the curry powder and coconut milk (shaking the can before opening); stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until the sauce is slightly reduced in volume. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add the seasoned fish. Loosely cover the pan with foil. Cook, without stirring, 8 to 12 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Carefully transfer the cooked fish to a cutting board; using a forks, flake into bite-sized pieces.
