This easy fish curry recipe is much healthier than a takeaway but it’s every bit as tasty. Just one pan, some fresh seafood and 40 minutes are all you need! This recipe is in collaboration with Seafish.
Life can get rather hectic sometimes. Sometimes we want a nice, quick and easy midweek dinner recipe that’s healthy and tasty too. This plaice and vegetable curry, from Seafish, definitely ticks all those boxes.
You can find plaice fillets in your local supermarket or fishmongers. Alternatively, any white fish will do.

NOTES ON COOKING WITH PLAICE AND #SEAFOODWEEK
Plaice is a mild flavoured white fish with a good texture, perfect for grilling, frying, goujons, poaching, steaming and rolling and stuffing. It also makes for a rather fantastic curry, but feel free to replace this white fish with any other if you can’t source it.
Ask your fishmonger to skin your plaice fillets for you, although this isn’t absolutely needed. The underside of the plaice is white with a very tender flesh which can be eaten.
