…I wanted to share my husband Peter’s take (and pictures) on BBC Food’s version of Green Coconut Fish Curry he loves to serve up for fish-eating friends. I’m vegan so end up adding tofu to the sauce before the prawns go in.
Peter loves a fish curry and as ever, I like to showcase what the whole family eats here, not just me.
