Curry & Coconut Mahi-Mahi on a Bed of Noodles Sautéed with Julienned Carrots & Zucchini

OK. After several requests from you, my loves, for quick & easy recipes containing fish or meat, I present you with my Curry & Coconut Mahi-Mahi (which, by the way, took me not even 20 minutes to whip up!!!! a.k.a. it’s perfect for all you working mamas & ambitious businessmen – this one’s for you after a long & rough day at work).

This dish is light, yet creamy, fresh, clean, protein & nutrient-packed, super healthy, tasty, savoury & every other adjective in the book to describe a dish that makes your kitchen smell like the beauty that is INDIAN FOOOOOOD. My kitchen literally smelled like India as I whipped this dish up, but hey, no complaints.

In case you guys were wondering what I mean when I say that this dish is PROTEIN-PACKED, the mahimahi filet contains a WHOPPING, WAIT FOR IT… 15g of protein!!! Like, how freaking awesome is that??

ANYWAYS, YOU WILL FEEL ALL THE FEELS (& I mean, all of them) when you twist these perfect noodles around your fork & delve into the flaky beauty that is this mahi-mahi filet.

OH & CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT COCONUT MILK FOR A SEC? It’s literally LIFE. You have no idea what a creamy texture it added to the curry. BEST PART? I used the light version & it was STILL CREAMY. DREAM. COME. TRUE., REALLY. OKAY, I WILL SHUT UP NOW. Time to tell you what you guys need & how to make this baby. Or, you might just starve & I, OF ALL PEOPLE, WOULD NOT WANT THAT (#recoverymodeon).

To whip this up, you will need:

  • 1 mahi-mahi filet, about 150g (or 5 oz.) (If you don’t have mahi-mahi or simply prefer another type of white fish, LET YOUR MIND RUN WILD PEOPLE. I GIVE YOU PERMISSION, but only for this part of the recipe, so choose wisely please);
  • 1 tbsp. of coconut oil (As always, I use Nutiva Organic coconut oil. I do also have my side babe, as discussed, Naked Coconuts organic coconut oil, but I really really feel guilty when I cheat on Nutiva, so I try not to do it very often);
  • 1/4 cup of coconut milk (I use Earth’s Choice Organic Coconut Milk);
  • 1/4 tbsp. of corn starch (I use Bob’s Red Mill);
  • 1 tsp. of curry powder;
  • 1 tsp. of garlic powder;
  • 1 garlic clove, minced;
  • 40g of shredded carrot;
  • 50g of julienned zucchini;
  • Organic Himalayan pink sea salt & ground black pepper for seasoning.

SIMPLE, RIGHT? I KNOW. Catering to my followers’ needs & stuff. I’m so awesome, eh? 😛

NOW, how do you take all these simple ingredients & whip up the beauty that is this coconut curry? LET ME EXPLAIN.

  1. Boil the noodles of your choice according to the package directions.
  2. Combine the coconut milk, curry powder, garlic powder, fresh garlic & cornstarch in a bowl. Add salt & peppa to taste (to your liking!). Set aside.
  3. Season your fish with organic Himalayan pink sea salt, ground black pepper, curry powder & garlic powder (The amounts are not included in the ingredients list. Just sprinkle a bit of each on the filet before you cook it, to your liking! I LOVE SPICES, SO MY LIKING = SPRINKLED SPICES EVERYWHEREEEE).
  4. Heat your coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once heated, cook your fish for about 4-5 minutes per side. WATCH YOUR FISH PEOPLE. Don’t let it burn. (P.S. If you chose to use a different white fish & if the filet is thinner than mahi-mahi, which is actually relatively thick, you may find that you need to cook your fish for less time, so BE THE JUDGE PEOPLE & if you don’t trust yourselves, trust me & use the mahi-mahi).
  5. Once cooked, set the fish aside.
  6. In the same skillet, sautée your veggies until they are cooked, BUT STILL CRUNCHY (CRUCIAL). This shouldn’t take more than 2-3 minutes.
  7. NOW, THE BEST PART & the part that will make your kitchen smell like HEAVEN ON EARTH, LEGIT: Add the coconut milk mixture to the veggies & bring to a boil.
  8. Reduce the heat to low & let simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
  9. NOW, BRING IT ALL TOGETHER (GAHHHH, SO EXCITED!): Lay your mahi-mahi on your bed of noodles & TOP THIS WONDERFULNESS with the curry & coconut sauce & veggies. ZOMFG. It’s so beautiful. I can’t even.

WHY YOU SO PRETTY? (This one needed a close-up… I MEAN…):
