This one took me by surprise, but nevertheless I just went with the flow and took out the photos for the recipe. As with all the recipes so far, this one is also simple to prepare. Normally when fish is curried it is just placed into the curry, like in the case of the cascadoo, but this is another way of currying that I've grown accustomed to. The fish is first fried, then a curry sauce is made, and the fish is placed in the sauce for a few minutes then served.
I remember well, when I was younger, sometimes I didn't like my fish "wet" in the curry; so my mother would put a slice aside for me. So if you're like me, you could do the same...too besides you're the one eating anyway 🙂
Even though food prices are sky rocketing here in Trinidad ( chicken went up again !), I believe that fish could become a healthier and more economic choice for households - or you could just eat less meat, ha ha !! If you're a DIY kind of person you could even catch it yourself and make it a lime at the same time. Here's Rice and Curry Fish.

Interesting recipe and this is the first time I've come across Trini cooking! Thank you.
Well Sid it's a pleasure to have you at my site. I hope you visit again.
You need to make Stewed Fish now. Been looking here for a version to try.

This is EXACTLY how my mom makes it. Since they cook by hand now I have exact measurements and can do it myself. =)

Hi! This looks great... at what point do you add the green seasoning? Or is it put on the fish?
You season the fish with it.
Hi Felix, im very excited to try this recipe. I just have a quick question
Between the two steps...........'Add curry mixture and simmer until it reaches a thick consistency.Then add chopped potatoes' and 'Simmer until potatoes are cooked (about 8 – 10 mins). Add salt to taste'..................it seems as though you added water. How much water would you advise adding?
Thank you in advance 🙂
I would say about 1/4 cup. While simmering over low heat just adjust if you see the pot drying down.
