My favourite ginger and coconut fish

This is a super easy & delicious recipe from the CWA Classics cookbook.  It comes in right on 300 calories (including veges) and you can mix it up with whatever sides you like and any type of fish too.  A beautiful mix of flavours and very quick to whip up - this definitely passes my "Play School test" (that is, prepping the meal in the time it takes the kids to watch one episode of Play School! - is that bad?!?)  Enjoy :-)

4 x 200g white fish cutlets
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon medium curry powder
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 dessertspoon fish sauce
140ml light coconut milk
steamed vegetables, to serve

Season the fish with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a large, deep, non-stick frying pan, add the ginger and curry powder, and keep stirring for a minute until fragrant.  Add the garlic and fish sauce, stir in the coconut milk, and add the fish in a single layer.  Cover and cook for about 10 minutes.

Serve fish on steamed vegetables, drizzled with the sauce.
