SEAFOOD CURRY
(Serves 6)

What you’ll need

For the sauce

  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 100g fresh ginger, chopped
  • 50ml olive oil
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 handful fresh coriander leaves

For the curry

  • 75g butter
  • 300g hake, cut into large chunks
  • 200g salmon, cut into large chunks
  • 200g raw peeled prawns
  • 100g mussels, cleaned and de-bearded

The how-to

For the sauce

  1. Place the onion and ginger together in a blender and blitz into a purée.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan until smoking. Add the garam masala to the pan and sizzle for 30 seconds before adding the onion and ginger purée.
  3. Reduce the heat and cook slowly for 5 minutes. Add the turmeric to the pan and fry for 1 minute before stirring in the chilli and frying for another minute.
  4. Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper, and stir well. Set aside.

For the curry

  1. Melt one third of the butter in a large pan. Cook the hake for 2–3 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from heat, place on a plate and cover with foil.
  2. Repeat this process with the salmon and the prawns, adding another third of butter each time. For the mussels, heat a medium-sized saucepan on high heat.
  3. Add the mussels with 30ml (2 tbsp) of water, cover tightly with a lid, and steam for 3–4 minutes, shaking the pan every so often. Drain, discard any mussels that may not have opened, and set the opened mussels aside with the other seafood.
  4. Bring the sauce to a boil, then gently stir in the fish and seafood. Bring back to a boil, remove from the heat and set aside for 5 minutes. Garnish with coriander leaves.
