Fragrant and Sour Fish Curry from Always Add Lemon by Danielle Alverez
(available at My Bookshop HERE)

60g coconut oil
200g cherry tomatoes
3 long purple eggplants cut into 2-3cm lengths
1 litre chicken stock
1 x 400ml tin coconut cream or milk
2 teaspoons raw(demerara) sugar
½ - 1 tablespoon fish sauce
800g fish fillet, such as wild barramundi or salmon, cut into 4 portions
Juice of 1-2 limes
1 bunch Thai basil
1 bunch fresh coriander leaves (stems reserved for curry paste)
Steamed jasmine rice to serve

Curry paste
2 kaffir lime leaves, stripped from their stems
40g galangal, peeled and thinly sliced (use ginger if you can’t find galangal)
3cm piece lemongrass stalk, white part only
20g peeled turmeric (or 1 teaspoon good-quality ground turmeric)
1 teaspoon cumin seeds, toasted
2-3 long green chillies, seeds removed
50g shallot, peeled and diced
3 garlic cloves
15-20g coriander root or stems
1 teaspoon shrimp paste

Star by making your curry paste. In the mortar and pestle, crush the lime leaves, galangal, lemongrass and turmeric with a pinch of salt (these are the toughest to make into a paste). Once they have broken down, add the remaining ingredients one at a time. Make sure each ingredient is fully incorporated before adding the next. Set aside.

Heat half the coconut oil in a wide saute pan over a high heat. Add the cherry tomatoes and eggplant and brown really well all over, then remove from the pan and set aside.

Add the remaining coconut oil and fry all the curry paste until fragrant and just beginning to brown. Next, pour in the stock, coconut cream and the sugar and simmer until it is reduced by half. Add ½ tablespoon fish sauce to begin with then taste if it needs further seasoning you can either add the remaining fish sauce or some salt. Add the fish, the tomatoes and eggplant and simmer until the fish is cooked through, about 6-8 minutes.

Lastly add the juice of 1 lime, then taste it. If it’s not really sour, add the juice of the second lime until the flavour is right. It should be adjusted by adding a bit more sliced chilli for heat, sugar for sweetness and lime juice for sourness and fish sauce for saltiness and umami. Serve in bowls with lots of fresh Thai basil and coriander leaves, and a bowl of steamed jasmine rice on the side.
