2 tablespoon red curry paste
4 tablespoon peanut oil
2 cup coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoon fish sauce
2 lb of tilapia steaks
1 tablespoon italian basil
3 fresh hot chilies chopped


Heat the curry paste in oil, stirring for about 2 minutes over med heat. Add 1/4 cup of coconut milk and the fish sauce and simmer slowly for another 2 minutes. Add the salt, sugar and the rest of the coconut milk. Bring to a boil and, as soon as the sauce boils, add the fish. DO NOT STIR THE FISH UNTIL THE SAUCE RETURNS TO A BOIL. If you disturb the fish before the sauce boils it will acquire a strong aroma. Simmer the fish until done, about 5 minutes.

Let the dish sit for at least 15 minutes (or even as long as overnight in the refrigerator) so the curry flavor permeates the fish. Reheat, without boiling, and just before serving add the basil leaves and chilies. Serve over rice.


5 dried red chilies, seeded, soaked in warm water and drained salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 2 tsp ground caraway seeds 2 tsp ground coriander seeds 1 tsp coriander root (Cilantro root) 2 tsp finely chopped fresh lemon grass or 1 tsp dried 1 tsp finely chopped Laos root (galangal) 1 Tbs chopped shallots 1/2 tsp shrimp paste.
