{Giveaway} Fish in Coconut Curry (Mtuzi wa Samaki)

This is probably apparent with the different types of recipes I post but I really like some variety in what I eat. As a kid, I ate the exact same meals every day because I was so picky, so now that I’ve (luckily) grown out of that, I want something new and different each time I cook.

The recipes can be made with ingredients you can find in your supermarket, making it a great way to experiment with new flavors. There are so many recipes I plan to try in this book, and you can expect to see quite a few showing up on my blog! Cooking Light also sent me an extra copy of Global Kitchen so I am giving one away at the end of this post!   This recipe for Fish in Coconut Curry takes a bit longer than most I post on here (~45 minutes) but is well worth the time.

I can cook up one dish by itself with relative ease, but as soon as I try to make an actual complete meal, I struggle. Cooking Planit to the rescue! This app is seriously a life saver. I will highlight some of its great features as I go through the recipe, but the overall gist of the app/website is that it helps you get an entire meal (that’s right, a main dish and two sides) on the table all at the same time. I made this recipe using some of … Continue reading
