450 g white fish fillets
3 garlic cloves
1 red onion, chopped
3 cm galangal, chopped (or ginger)
2 lemongrass, fine sliced
½ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp paprika
2 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
400 g coconut milk
4 kaffir lime leaves
1 lemon (juice of)


Place garlic, onion, galangal, lemongrass, turmeric, SIDS CRAZY LEMON, paprika, fish sauce and sugar in a blender then process until finely blended. Add the coconut milk and process until thoroughly blended. Transfer the coconut mixture to a heavy based pan.
Crush the kaffir lime leaves in your hand to release their aroma and add them to the pan. Bring the coconut mixture to the boil and reduce to a gentle simmer and cook for 10 minutes, to allow the flavour to infuse and the liquid to reduce slightly. Add the fish chunks and poach gently for 4-5 minutes. Stir through the lemon juice, then transfer to serving bowls.
