Cod Red Curry
Cod Red Curry is one of my favorite ways to enjoy fresh Alaskan cod (or halibut). Cooking fish can be really intimidating and it just doesn’t taste the same when you overcook it. Poaching is a great option for cooking lean fish like tilapia, cod, haddock, snapper, or halibut as well as fatty fish like salmon or trout. It is a type of moist-heat cooking technique that involves cooking by submerging a food item in a liquid usually at a low temperature.
This red curry recipe is full of flavor, colorful nutrient dense ingredients and will leave you feeling satisfied. It’s truly comfort in a bowl.
