Thai style green curry sauce and fresh tilapia filets baked in creamy coconut milk and served with brown rice. Easy to make and just like your favorite takeout!
I am a Thai food fanatic and lucky to have so many awesome restaurants near me to choose from. With each place I visit I know exactly what to order but if I'm hankering for curry, I'll usually always go with chicken. But, then I had fish in my curry, and my whole chicken love kinda went up in smoke. Maybe it was a texture thing. After covering these tilapia filets with the green curry coconut sauce and slow baking them in the oven, the flakes literally melted in my mouth. Tilapia is the perfect firm fish for this kind of recipe. It can hold up to the sauce but ends up being super light and flaky when you dive in and grab a forkful. All it needs is some salt and black pepper before adding the sauce, I threw on some dried red chilies just because spicy food is my thing.
This recipe is my third in collaboration with Regal Springs Tilapia. You can check out my other two to see how versatile tilapia can be. Traditional Fish and Chips and Cioppino are very different recipes but the tilapia is delicious in both of them! Regal Springs is working hard to provide sustainable healthy fish. And since, it's low in fat and high in protein, tilapia makes a great choice for easy weeknight dinners.
Making traditional Thai curry paste might seem a little daunting, luckily there's a few really good versions already made for you and can be found in the Asian aisle of your grocery store. Mix it with the coconut milk and a few other easy ingredients and dinners almost done, it's that easy and the family will be amazed that you didn't pick this up from a restaurant!
