Epic Keto Curry!
People have often requested that I do more fish recipes. Truth be told I don’t eat as much fish as I would like to. I’d say chicken is my meat of choice for regular cooking while beef and pork are my next preference.
Fish curry is often made in my house. We have a cook, Kavita, who makes it and I’ve learnt this recipe from her. So full credit to her not just for this dish but in general for teaching me a bunch of Indian recipes.
As most of you might know my pallet leans more towards the cuisines of the west. Roast chicken, tuna salad, beef stroganoff and ham sandwiches to name a few. Anyway this curry is super easy to make, you can use any fish you have available or even prawns for that matter. So enjoy!
Will chicken do?
I’m positive there will be people who don’t eat fish. So in advance, yes you can use chicken in this recipe. That will make it a chicken curry. However I already have a Keto chicken curry and another Keto chicken curry recipe on the website. My vegetarian friends can use paneer in place of the fish. If you eat eggs I also have an egg curry and an egg masala recipe.
What the fish?
For the most part despite the variety of fish, most of them cook pretty similar. White fish of course are the most common to each other, like cod, haddock, basa and tilapia. Salmon without skin cooks equally fast. If you are using any fish that eats better with crispy skin I recommend removing it when making the curry. What you can do is crisp up that skin in the oven for a quick snack.
A lot of people like frying their fish before using it in stews and in some curries too but in a lot of fish curries like this you don’t need it. There are spices and it’s great to poach the fish in that curry. I love the texture of poached fixed it’s superb.
This curry has the mild flavour from the tomato and onion. Normally you eat it with rice but cauliflower rice works perfectly for those on a Keto diet. You can also pour it over some mashed cauliflower though that’s not typical. I can’t remember anyone eating fish curry over mashed potato. What’s great is this recipe is dairy free since we use coconut milk. However if you wish to use dairy you can add some heavy cream or a dollop of sour cream as well.
Low carb fish recipes
Fish of all kind are keto-friendly. And I have a number of keto fish recipes. Perhaps you’d like my fish in a lemon butter caper sauce. Or my pan seared salmon in a cream sauce which is one of my top fish dishes.
At the end of the day, eat more fish. It’s a nutrient dense ingredient. It’s packed with vitamins, minerals and most of all flavor. Fish is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Especially salmon, sardines, maceral and tuna.
