A simple and healthy recipe
I’m suggesting this recipe of fish with exotic tastes, easy to cook and full of healthy ingredients !
Benefits of the three main ingredients
Cod is a white fish, rich in Omega-3, therefore good for the hormonal, immune and circulatory systems.
It’s full of proteins and contains little calories and fat.
However, because of intensive fishing, it’s endangered, so as for salmon for example, be careful with what you buy ! Choose organic fish and, if you can of course, buy local !
If I still suggest it for this recipe, it’s because of its light taste, ideal even for those who don’t like fish too much.
Contrary to stereotypes, curry isn’t a spice but mixed spices.
Coming from India, where it’s prepared by grinding spices with a bit of fat over a fire, it was first brought over by English settlers in the 18th century.
In the Madras Curry, we find in general : pepper, curcum, coriander, cumin, mustard seeds, black pepper, caloupilé leafs, ginger, garlic, cardamome.
Many other curries exist, lighter or stronger, but this yellow curry is the most commonly found.
Thanks to these spices, curry is full of antioxydants, eases digestion, increases the immune system, is a good source of vitamin E and helps fighting off aging.
Different from coconut juice, this milk is obtained by mixing shredded coconut pulp with boiling water.
It includes :
lauric acid, good against infections and bad cholesterol.
magnesium, which helps with arterial pressure and stress.
phosphorus, which fortifies bones, and selenium which helps fighting arthritis and joint inflammations.
vitamins and minerals.
Furthermore, it’s a non-dairy milk, to help reducing your intake of dairy products.

Easy, isn’t it ?
You can replace the cod with another fish, of with chicken. I served with rice, but why not use pastas, boulghour, quinoa…
Vegan alternative : replace the fish with tofu !
