by Nikolai Nikitenko April 28, 2016

Alaska Cod Saag Curry


1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup sliced shallots
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon minced ginger
1/2 to 1 Tablespoon curry powder
1 can (14 oz.) regular or lite coconut milk
1 to 2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 to 2 Tablespoons minced cilantro
1/2 teaspoon garam marsala
1 can (14 oz.) chicken broth
4 PACIFIC COD FILLETS (4 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
1/4 cup heavy cream
8 to 10 oz. baby spinach leaves
Cayenne pepper, to taste


In a large (12-inch) nonstick pan or stockpot, heat olive oil, shallots, garlic, ginger and curry over medium heat.  Cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes until shallots are soft.  Stir in coconut milk, fish sauce, cilantro, garam marsala and chicken broth.  Bring to a simmer; cook 3 to 5 minutes.  Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Cod fillets under cold water.  Turn off heat and gently add seafood to liquid, skin side down.  Return heat to a simmer. 

Once simmering, cover pan and cook 4 to 5 minutes for frozen seafood or 2 minutes for fresh/thawed fish.  Turn off heat and let seafood rest 5 minutes or until seafood is opaque throughout.  Remove fillets; cover and keep warm. 

Turn heat to high; reduce liquid by half, cooking about 5 minutes.  Add cream and spinach, cover and cook until wilted. 

To serve, portion 1/4 of spinach onto plate or shallow bowl, top with a seafood portion and sprinkle with cayenne pepper.
