This is a recipe I concocted with while experimenting with curries and stews. I wanted a stew that didn’t take too long to cook, but that still had all the flavours of a hearty and comforting curry with a Caribbean (see ‘Colombo de poulet’ – French Antilles) and Asian fusion (see traditional Chicken curry).

This recipe is one of my absolute favourite fish dishes, great as a summer meal but also a very healthy option as it’s grilled in the oven (as opposed to fried).

A few days ago, I arranged to meet up with Debra for a quick bite. I had been looking forward to this for a long time.
