Do you sometimes pick up a great deal at the grocery store, then get home and wonder how in the world you’re going to prepare it?
So these 4 pound bags of frozen fillets were on for $10!
Plain, colour-less, and probably full of water. What were we thinking?
There was no point in breading these, they’d never crisp up.
So baking in a sauce came to mind. I started with onion and garlic sauted in butter, then browned the fish. I mixed some curry powder into a can of coconut milk, poured it over the top and baked it for 20 minutes.
We ate it before I could take a picture. 🙁
Here’s my actual recipe in case you’d like to make it too.
- 2 tablespoons of butter, divided
- 2 pounds fish fillets, thawed
- 1 spanish onion, quartered and sliced
- 5 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 2 tablespoons of curry powder, or more
- 1 398 ml can of full-fat coconut milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 350 ' F
- Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in an ovenproof skillet on medium high heat.
- Saute the onion and garlic until golden brown.
- Remove to a plate or bowl.
- Season the fish with salt and pepper to taste.
- Melt the other tablespoon of butter and brown the fish on both sides. You'll likely have to do it in 2 batches. A lot of water came out of the fish I used, and I left it in the skillet.
- Put the browned fish on the bottom of the skillet and evenly spread the onion and garlic over top.
- Shake the can of coconut milk, then open it.
- Add the curry powder to the can and stir well, then pour it over the fish and onion in the skillet.
- Bake, uncovered for 20 minutes.
- We really liked this, and as I still have half a bag of fish in the freezer, I'll make it again.
