“Make-Away” Thai Green Fish Curry


The last two weeks have probably been the most hectic; if I haven’t seen the inside of my fridge for a few days, you know there is something wrong. It’s in those spaces that I’ve found myself darting across the road from my local train station… to the nearest take-away.

I don’t say it with pride: take-away is not for pleasure or a treat; what could be less appealing than eating your dinner out of a greasy brown paper bag or shallow plastic container? Ok I know it’s not that bad. But there is one thing: I don’t expect the food to be authentic, or satisfying. In fact I wasn’t suppose to maintain this for more than a few days…it lasted a few weeks! I really miss cooking. And the extra change in my pocket. But my hectic schedule hasn’t eased off to make much room for it. This is the dilemma; tasty food in little to no time and no effort.

As it turns out that my local Sainsbury’s has created a ‘Make-away’ range featuring Italian, Indian, Chinese and Thai dishes that you can re-create at home. I thought I’d give the Thai range a try so put together these ingredients:


  • Cod Fillet
  • Thai Sticky Rice
  • Coconut Milk
  • Thai Green Curry Paste
  • 2 - Garlic cloves (as I like a lot of garlic)
  • Lime (garnish/ marinate fish)
  • Few Sprigs of Coriander
  • Half Red Sweet Pepper - sliced
  • Baby Sweetcorn - sliced
  • splash of fish sauce

It couldn’t be easier: Marinate and clean fish with lime juice and cut into cubes, add fish sauce and. Set aside. Fry a couple of heap spoonfuls of thai green curry in peanut oil for a few minutes, then add the garlic cloves and half the can of coconut milk. Allow of simmer for a few minutes.

Then add the fish carefully and stir only till the fish is coated in the sauce then leave for 5-10 minutes to cook gently. Check after 8 minutes to see if the fish has cooked.

Then season to taste with salt/ pepper before adding the vegetables at the end. You want them vegetables to remain crunchy.

Serve with sticky thai rice and your favourite Take-Away sides!

Enjoy in less than 15 minutes, a lot less time than a take-away with a lot more taste!
