Friday’s Fish.

I love curries and luckily so does my family.
This dish is fast and pretty easy to make.

1 (8 ounce) can coconut cream
1 (12 ounce) can green curry sauce
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 leek, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 pound cod

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, mix the coconut cream, curry sauce, dill, salt, and pepper. Cook until heated through.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the pepper, onion, leek, and garlic about 5 minutes.
Place the cod in a baking dish. Cover with the vegetables, and top with the coconut cream mixture.
Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, stirring sauce and vegetables occasionally, until fish is easily flaked with a fork.
We love brown rice with this.
Enjoy!

Coconut Lime Thai Chicken Soup

I love Thai food, and Coconut soup by far is my favorite dish.
But I never tried to make it from scratch..
After my friend Amy posted this recipe on Facebook I only had this soup on the brain.
This recipe resulted in enough for 4 bowls, I added red pepper flakes and mushrooms for color.
The mushrooms came out of a can and I won’t repeat that ever, so if you can find fresh Asian mushrooms?
The juice of the lime gives it that tangy taste and the turmeric colors it a pretty yellow.
Store it in a good container for no more than 3 days, that is *if* you have left-overs.

Ingredients
3/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken meat
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 (14 ounce) cans coconut milk
2 cups water
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
4 tablespoons fish sauce
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

Cut chicken into thin strips and saute in oil for to 2 to 3 minutes until the chicken turns white.
In a pot, bring coconut milk and water to a boil. Reduce heat.
Add ginger, fish sauce, lime juice, cayenne powder and turmeric.
Simmer until the chicken is done, 10 to 15 minutes.
