This week's Craving Ellie in My Belly selection was chosen by Liz of The Not So Skinny Kitchen. We love Thai food, and I had a jar of red curry paste in the pantry that's been calling to me. I picked up a pound of halibut at Trader Joe's, and modified the vegetable selection to utilize the sugar snap peas and zucchini that came in this week's CSA box. I also used some homemade chicken stock from the freezer. I nestled the veggies in with the halibut so they could cook in the wonderfully spicy broth. It almost took longer to chop the shallots than it did to put together this dish. Served with brown rice, it was a delicious and satisfying weeknight dinner. I wasn't together enough to get a photo of this one when it was fully cooked or plated, but hopefully you get the idea. It was a huge hit! Even though I used less fish, I made the same amount of broth so I could stretch out the sauce and serve it with other proteins.
Be sure you check out Liz's blog for the recipe, or better yet, bring home the book we're cooking from, The Food You Crave by Ellie Krieger. It's jam packed with great, healthier recipes like this one.
