Posted Friday, January 30, 2015   |   1477 views   |   Family & Home   |   Comments (1) Serves 4. Hands-on time 30 min, simmering time 30 min, oven time 5 min

• 4 x 200g skin-on cod fillets, cut 3-4cm thick
• 1/4 tsp mild curry powder
• 1 tbsp coconut oil or ghee
• 1 tbsp roughly chopped fresh coriander to garnish

For the coconut curry sauce
• 50g shallots, roughly chopped
• 3 garlic cloves, sliced
• 3cm piece fresh ginger, roughly chopped
• 1 medium-hot red chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
• 3 tbsp tomato passata or tinned chopped tomatoes
• 1 tsp kashmiri (medium-hot) chilli powder (if unavailable use mild chilli powder), or to taste
• 1/2 tsp each salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 1 tsp ground turmeric
• 2 tbsp coconut oil or ghee
• 1 tsp black mustard seeds
• 50g creamed coconut (see Know-how)
• 300ml good quality fish or fresh vegetable stock
• 100ml coconut milk
• 1/2 tsp light muscovado sugar
• 12 fresh or freeze-dried curry leaves (see Know-how)
1. Heat the oven to 200ºC/fan180ºC/gas 6. For the curry sauce, put the shallots, garlic, ginger, chilli and passata/tinned tomatoes in a food processor and blend to a smooth paste. Add the chilli powder, salt, black pepper and turmeric, then blend briefly.

2. Heat the 2 tbsp coconut oil or ghee in a heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat. Add the black mustard seeds and as soon as they start to pop, add the curry paste. Fry gently for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Add the creamed coconut and as soon as it has melted, add the fish or vegetable stock, coconut milk, muscovado sugar and curry leaves. Simmer gently for 15 minutes. Taste, adjust the seasoning and keep warm while you cook the fish.

3. Season the cod all over with a little salt, pepper and the curry powder. Heat the 1 tbsp oil or ghee in a non-stick ovenproof frying pan, add the cod, skin-side up and cook for 4 minutes or until nicely golden. Turn the fish over, then transfer the pan to the oven and roast for 4-5 minutes or until the fish is just cooked through.

4. Bring the coconut curry sauce back to a simmer. Remove the cod from the oven, then serve golden side up on steamed rice, if you like, with the curry sauce spooned over and scattered with the chopped coriander.

WINE EDITOR’S CHOICE Softly spiced with a gentle coconut creaminess, this dish is a perfect match for a low acidity, perfumed, fruity Alsace gewurztraminer.

The WW1 U-boats at Pendennis have been dived for many years, by many people. The site is probably the second most popular shore-dive in Cornwall. Thousands of trainees did their first open-water dives there, most seeing the remains of one or two of the U-boats. Not sure what to write into their log-books, other than 'Silver Steps’ or ‘Pendennis’, what were these subs?
