I almost left the word COD out of the title because I don't want you to get the wrong idea about this recipe.
Fish in the same title with curry? Does it feel weird? How do we feel about cod curry? Okay? A little strange? Maybe you're wondering what I was thinking when I decided to offer you a curry with seafood?
You're going to LOVE it.
Why you're going to love this curry
Because it's dreammmy.
Silky fire-roasted tomato-ey curry with undertones of ginger, garlic, lime, and turmeric serves as a saucy pool of tasty for perfectly cooked, flaky codfish. It's a delicious combo that resembles popular fish curry dishes that you might find in Southern India.
It's simple. And you know how we love a simple dinner recipe on Pass Me Some Tasty! The fish curry is served over brown rice. The rice does take about 45 minutes but it's hands-off cooking. Then the fish and curry hang out in a skillet together for the last 25 minutes while the rice is doing its thing. And just like that, with minimal effort, you've created an easy weeknight meal. Add it to your dinner meal planning schedule for this next week because it's sure to be a dinner winner.
And if you have kiddos, don't be scared to serve it to them too. My food temperamental kiddos loved it which means yours surely will too, at least until their tastebuds change again five minutes later.
Cooking with cast iron
If you invite dinner guests over to partake in this luxurious cod curry don't be surprised if they stroll into your kitchen while you're cooking, with eyes full of wonder and curiosity, and exclaim, "What in the world is THAT?!?!"
And you will politely reply, "THAT is my new FINEX cast iron skillet. Isn't she beautiful?!"
Yes, it's a girl. I'm still deciding on a name. Suggestions?
Your dinner guests may have been asking about the fish curry, but it does make for a great opportunity to brag about your cast iron beauty.
If you have never cooked with cast iron, or maybe you're contemplating venturing into the world of cast iron, or you happen to be a cast iron aficionado, this FINEX cast iron skillet is a cast iron dream come true in the land of cast iron cooking. (Try to say that sentence 5 times as fast as you can.)
Why this cast iron skillet is awesome
--> You are much less likely to burn your entire hand off when you grab the handle and forget you are cooking with cast iron.
Hands are important. And so is the beautiful stainless steel coil handle on the FINEX cast iron skillet. It's designed to stay cool longer when cooking on your stovetop, which means you'll never run screaming to the sink to plunge your hand into cold water again...unless you pull it straight out of the oven without an oven mitt. So don't do that.
--> Say "Adios!" to obsessive-compulsive attempts to season your cast iron skillet.
Hate is a strong word that I don't really ever use. Buuut one might say that I have very strong negative feelings when cast iron companies tell me that I can cook things like...oooh, let's just say fish, for example...and they promise that the fish won't stick to the skillet surface as long as I make sure to season it regularly. It ALWAYS sticks. I don't care how long or how often you've seasoned it. It's going to stick and you'll wind up with a sticky black mess on the surface of your skillet.
BUUUUT not with this cast iron skillet! FINEX has brought back the "old cast iron ways" of the early 20th century by polishing the cooking surface to perfection versus the rough, bumpy surfaces or the enamel-covered surfaces prone to chipping that we see in most mainstream cast iron products today. This not only means that you no longer need to break the crazy code on cast iron seasoning but it also means your fish won't stick (check out the video from FINEX below)! Neither will heavy sauces or even eggs for that matter. This is a HUGE win. Good job FINEX.
--> It's a really good looking skillet. But it's also functional.
Just like in dating...looks get you there, but personality keeps you there. And when it comes to cast iron, you're not just dating, you're entering into a long term relationship. Your cast iron skillet should be one that provides amazing results both when cooking over coals at a campfire or when cooking on the stove at home or in the oven...but it should look sexy too (I can't believe I just said that about a skillet).
Also, FINEX cast iron skillets come with a "Good Forever" Guarantee. Now if only your last date came with that, right?
Healthy, easy dinner meets aesthetic but highly functional cookware
Whether you need a simple weeknight dinner or a fancy-ish meal for weekend dinner party guests, this coconut tomato curry with cod and brown rice is a versatile recipe that works for any occasion and for any night of the week.
And when cooking this recipe in your heirloom-worthy FINEX cast iron skillet, your beautiful curry can go straight from cooktop to table without missing a beat. Enjoy! ♡
