Rhubarb Fish Curry Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 servings


  • 1 1/3 pounds pollock or tilapia fillets
  • 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 9 ounces rhubarb
  • 1 tablespoon green curry paste
  • 1 thumb-size piece of turmeric or 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 4-6 teaspoons coconut sugar (or regular to taste)
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 small bunch parsley
  • Salt and white pepper to taste
How to cook Rhubarb Fish Curry:
  • Wash and dry the fish filets, cut them into bite-size pieces, place in a bowl, add the lemon juice, some salt, and white pepper. Cover and place in the fridge, while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  • Chop the onion and garlic cloves finely but keep them separated. Clean and chop the rhubarb into thin slices, about 1/2 inch thick. Grate the turmeric finely.
  • Heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet (or a non-stick pan). Cook the onions until translucent, add the garlic and stir for another minute or so. Add the rhubarb, turmeric and curry paste and cook gently for about 3 minutes. Add the sugar and the vegetable broth, some salt, and pepper. Stir well, then add the heavy cream. Bring to a boil and cook, uncovered, for about 5 minutes.
  • Mash one of the bananas and cut the other one into small cubes. Add them to the pot together with the fish and continue cooking for another 5 minutes. Adjust the taste with more salt, pepper, and sugar if you find it necessary. Remove from heat and stir in the chopped parsley.
  • Serve the Rhubarb Fish Curry immediately over steamed white rice.
  • Enjoy!
