Maui Thai Curry With Local Fish

Recipe: Maui Thai Curry with Opakapaka 

ingredients for fish curry

I was at Mana Foods in Paia when I saw my friend George, the long-time chef at Cafe Des Amis. The next thing I know, he gives me a tutorial on cooking Thai curry while we pick up groceries together. Maui is beautiful, but the people here make it even more beautiful!

2 Tablespoons                Oil

4  Leaves                         Kaffir Lime whole

2  Pieces                         Lemon Grass, ground or finely chopped

6 Cloves                          Garlic, finely chopped

2 Cup                                Onion, Julienned

3 Cup                                Bell Pepper, Julienned

1 Root                               Turmeric, peeled and finely sliced

1 Root                               Ginger, peeled and finely sliced

2 Teaspoons                    Curry Paste, Red, Green or Yellow

4 Cups                              Coconut Milk

1 Teaspoon                       Sugar

6 Tablespoons                 Fish Sauce

1 Teaspoon                      Curry Powder

2 Pounds                         Opakapaka or other white fish filleted

1/4 Cup                             Thai Basil leaves thinly chopped

1/4 Cup                             Cilantro leaves whole

 Saute first 8 ingredients until desired tenderness. Add curry paste. Slowly stir in coconut milk. Add fish sauce and sugar. Add basil and cilantro. Sprinkle curry powder on fish fillets and grill or saute separately. I like to add the fish on top rather than cook in the curry sauce. Enjoy!
