Pinoy Fish Curry with Kalabasa
Pinoy Fish Curry with Kalabasa. I have always wanted to try to cook a version of fish curry that could be acceptable to Pinoy similar to the Pinoy chicken curry. Today I tried to cook one with squash and some string beans. This is the first time I cooked this and I think it still need some improvement, never the less the outcome was good.

Pinoy Fish Curry

What I did was I sautéed the fish first to remove some of the fishiness (next time I would fry it also) then keep aside to be added later. Then I cooked the vegetables in coconut milk. Added some curry powder before returning the fish. Okey here is the recipe of my Pinoy Fish Curry with Kalabasa

String Beans and Squash

2 pieces red snapper fillet or any similar white fish, cut into squares
2 cups cubed squash,
1 small bundle string beans, cut into 2” length
1/2 head garlic chopped

2 small size onion, chopped,
2 pieces red/green chili, sliced
1-1 1/2 cup pure coconut milk
2 tbsp. fish sauce
1-2 tbsp. curry powder
salt and pepper
cooking oil
