Fish Curry Recipe

This quick and easy fish curry recipe should not be confused with fish head curry or otherwise known Kari Kepala Ikan. The meat used in this fish curry recipe is hake fillets and not fish heads, quite a difference.

Although fish curry originated in India, using fish heads, we decided to divert from the original fish curry recipe, and use tender white fish fillets, or hake fillets.

My husband calls hake fish, chicken of the ocean. There is so much you can do with hake, from fish and chips, which is most famous, fish cakes, and even this fish curry recipe. We decided on hake fillets for this fish curry recipe, because of its versatility, and tender meat.

This recipe is easy to prepare and takes, just about 20 minutes to cook. A quick fish curry recipe you can enjoy on any day, or one of those comes home late after work evenings.
