Quick And Delicious
Fragrant (Immune Boosting) Fish Curry
June 4, 2014
As with most curries, this recipe is wonderfully nourishing for the Winter months.  It’s full of good fats, spices and herbs along with citrus from the lime that is especially good for our immune systems.  The vegetables add for extra nourishment and comfort.  It’s a wonderful meal, is nice and easy to pull together and comes courtesy of the amazing Jude Blereau.   Make it your own by adding in your families favourite vegetables and hopefully if you have children they’ll enjoy it as much as you do,  (perhaps just leave out the chilli).
