Thai Fish Curry

This delicious dish is basically a nice piece of fish fillet, fried in a light dusting of flour then served on a  very creamy Thai Green Curry. The Thia Green Curry in this case is home-made in the same recipe we used before to make the Chicken and Prawn Thai Green Curry. It is not a fish curry as such but more of a Fried fish topped with Thai Green Curry.

This is a beautifully fragrant dish, creamy with the use of rich coconut cream. We used less stock/water and more coconut milk to give a rich consistency. The fish we used was sea bass which was seasoned in a mixture of Thai 7 Spice, corn flour and normal flour.

We made 2 slight variations, one with the fish on top and one with the Thai Curry topped fish..both work well!
