Fish Tikka Masala


Here's a dish we first got in one of those pre-planned grocery bags that are so popular in Sweden at the moment. We've tried several providers, and this particular recipe comes from City Gross. We actually like their service quite a bit, they're very reasonable and the food was good. This fish dish was our absolute favorite! So easy and so tasty, it's something we're definitely making again. We modified the recipe to work for us.

Fish Tikka Masala
serves 4

500 g white fish (we had cod) 

1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp turmeric
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tbsp cooking oil
400 g crushed tomatoes (one can) 
400 g coconut milk (one can) 
1 tbsp concentrated vegetable stock
1-2 tsp honey
salt, pepper

Heat the oil in a large pot in low heat. Fry the onions, garic, ginger, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne pepper for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes, coconut and the concentrated stock and cook for ten minutes.  Taste, and season with honey, salt and pepper. Mix the sauce with a handheld blender until smooth. 

Dice the fish and add to the sauce. Let it simmer on low heat until it's cooked through.

We served it with cooked rice and a simple salad - the dressing is just plain yogurt with salt, dried mint, a tiny bit of sugar, and then thinned with a little water.
