What’s for dinner? Broiled Tilapia with Thai Coconut-Curry Sauce #Kid-friendly

The weather’s warming up, so eating heavy meals isn’t very desirable.

Our daughter’s on a rice kick right now and I felt like fish, so here’s what I made:

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon dark sesame oil, divided

2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper

1 cup chopped green onion

1 teaspoon curry powder

2 teaspoons red curry paste

1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin

4 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1⁄2 teaspoon salt, divided

1 (14 ounce) can light coconut milk (I used regular)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

4 (6 ounce) tilapia fillets

3 cups hot cooked basmati rice

1 lime, cut into 4 wedges

Directions:

Preheat broiler.
Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Add ginger and garlic; cook 1 minute.

Add peppers and onions; cook 1 minute.

Stir in curry powder, curry paste, and cumin; cook 1 minute.

Add soy sauce, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and coconut milk; bring to a simmer (but do not boil).

Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.

Brush fish with remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt and place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray (I just use parchment paper).

Broil 7 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Serve fish with sauce, rice, and lime wedges.

I was so pleased with this recipe! The coconut-curry sauce was mild enough for the kids and oh-so tasty, that we really enjoyed it! I served it up with a side of rice, sauteed zucchini and some of our favourite kale salad. Perfect for a weeknight dinner. This sauce could be used with shrimp or chicken as well.
