I found this recipe simply yumm! I tried it with fresh plump macrels which i had previously marinated for about 30 mins with a bit of vinegar. A simple recipe that turned out really nice,In spite of there being no ginger or garlic which is the usual ingredients for a fish curry. Any more interesting recipes? Cheers!
