Poaching filets of barramundi in a spicy, fragrant coconut curry sauce is an ideal way to let the fish absorb the flavor of the sauce without overcooking. Served with jasmine rice and sauteed spinach, this dish makes for an elegant weeknight meal. Kate, Recipe Hunter

THE RECIPE

Thai Coconut Curry Poached Barramundi

A healthier take on Thai curry

We’re always looking for ways to incorporate more healthy seafood into our diet in interesting, inspired ways. With this recipe, you can recreate the flavors of a Thai curry at home to create a dish that looks and tastes elegant but is actually quite easy. By poaching the barramundi (a sustainably raised fish similar to sea bass that you can find at Trader Joe’s and other stores) in the sauce, the fish absorbs the intense flavor of the curry while still maintaining its delicate texture and flavor (and staying in one piece). Served with quickly sautéed spinach and jasmine rice, you can put this elegant meal on the table in 30 minutes. Now, who said you can’t have date night on a Wednesday?
