Made curry with it

My man is back to his fishing trips. His second fishing trip this month. 2 nights fishing trip so he had quite a catch. Not many but good enough to fill up our deep freezer.

Few big deep sea fishes. The containers were filled up with squids. He sold few fishes, gave few to friends and I passed a pack to my parents as usual. 

I love to eat squids so I took out one container and cooked curry squid not long ago. Another curry dish that I enjoyed was curry fish. 

Hubby caught a big mackerel so we devided it into 3 parts. Head, hubby gave to a friend. Middle, deep fried while the tail part, I made curry with it. 

I love having mackerel in curry gravy, like how those mamak shops served them.  Whenever I go for lunch at mamak, I will definitely look out for the mackerel curry. 

My first attempt at cooking curry fish using mackerel cuts. I was glad that it turned out fine and fit my tastebuds. 


Mackerel, cut and season with salt and pepper

3 tbsp cooking oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 big onion, sliced

3 tbsp meat or fish curry powder

220ml coconut milk

200ml water

salt to taste

3 lady's fingers, trimmed

1 tomato, sliced


1. Heat up a pot with cooking oil. Once heat up, add in garlic, and big onion until soft and fragrant.

2. Add in curry powder and continue to stir for another minute.

3. Pour in the coconut milk and water. Bring to boil before adding in the fish, tomato and lady's fingers.

4. Cover and bring to boil.  Season with salt and lower the heat, let it simmer for about 5 to 8 minutes.

Yes, mackerel is great for fish curry. I just use A1 Mountain Globe instant curry paste (seafood) - nicer than the celebrated Sheraton fish head curry here.

That's a lot of catch there. Mackerel is my favourite type of fish. Haven't try to cook it with curry yet, cause most of the time I prefer to cook with asam laksa paste

Hubby paid for the trip (boat rental). Everyone chip in their share. Whatever he catches, is his.
