Green Curry with Fish

Fish green curry with zucchini, green beans, and broccoli is a super quick and delicious curry in a hurry recipe! This easy recipe can be made nightshade-free and keto.

I spent the first three weeks of September in Whitefish, Montana, which is what inspired this recipe. I was perusing one of the local grocery stores and noticed a sizeable whitefish fillet in the seafood section, which had been freshly caught the day before in Whitefish Lake. 

Being the fish obsessed human I am, I immediately knew I wanted to make curry with it. So curry it up, I did!

Here’s what you need to know about this recipe:

Recipe Highlights:

  • This fish green curry requires right around 30 minutes to make, including chopping the vegetables and fish!
  • Grain-free, gluten-free, soy-free, DELICIOUS
  • Can easily be turned into yellow or red curry (see Recipe Adaptations below)
  • Packed with all your essential nutrients – healthy fat from the coconut milk, lean protein from the white fish, vitamins and minerals from the veggies, and easily digestible carbs from the white rice (or make it low-carb by using cauliflower rice).

Health Benefits of Cod:

Did you know cod is super high in protein and super low in fat? If you’re looking to up your protein game and are conscious of your fat intake, cod is a marvelous lean protein source. Plus, you get vitamins and minerals (specifically, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, selenium, and phosphorous), making cod nutrient-dense fuel for your body.

6 ounces of cod contains 30 grams of protein, 140 calories, 0 grams of carbohydrate, and just over 1 gram of fat.

Can you even believe it??

The small amount of fat the cod does have is rich in omega-3 fatty acids (as opposed to omega-6), which is marvelous for brain health, hormone health, digestion, etc. In addition, cod is lower in mercury than many other types of fish or seafood (like tuna).

Fish en Papillote with Butter and Lemon

Fish en Papillote with Butter and Lemon is an easy main dish resulting in moist, tender, flavorful fish! Serve it up with your favorite side dishes for a lovely well-balanced meal.

Fish en papillote. Have you dabbled?

If you’re new to it, no sweat…I have covered everything you need to know in this post. And if you’re a seasoned veteran of the papillote, get ready for a squeaky clean and easy fish en papillote recipe!

What is Fish en Papillote?:

In case you’ve never tried it, fish en papillote is simply fish cooked in parchment paper. Fish is wrapped in parchment and bound using twine (or if you’re an expert at folding, you can simply fold the parchment paper, creating a packet) then baked in the oven to perfection. This cooking method ensures your fish stays nice and tender and yields a flavorful, delicious result!

If you’re interested in this cooking method, be sure to also check out my Mediterranean Salmon in Parchment Paper and my Mediterranean Salmon in Parchment Paper, Lemon Dill Cod in Parchment Paper with Capers  and Pesto Salmon in Parchment Paper.

For this rendition of fish in parchment paper, we’re going with butter, lemon, garlic, and rosemary for a zesty, creamy, herby approach.

What Type of Fish to Use:

I use cod for this recipe, but you can go with virtually anything – salmon, halibut, and trout are all great choices! Cod is very subtle in flavor, and absorbs added flavors very well. In this sense, cod will not overpower the flavor profile you’re going for as it is light and buttery by itself.

If you’re new here, the main bullet point is: fish and seafood in parchment paper a winning meal makes!

As we all know, I’m a major salmon lover. Just check out my extensive salmon archives

In spite of the fact that I can put my Teriyaki Salmon Bowls, Mediterranean Salmon, and Pesto Salmon in Parchment Paper on repeat over and over, I’ve made it my mission to branch out to the other fishies.

Enter: Cod.

It’s no salmon, but it’ll do 😉

What I love about cod is it absorbs flavor of marinades really well, as it has a subtle, buttery flavor. For this recipe, I whipped up an easy coconut milk-based marinade using full-fat canned coconut milk, fresh basil, ginger, and lemongrass.

The result is magnificent! If you have your own favorite marinade, you can always whip that up instead, or just drizzle the fish with some avocado oil and lemon juice and a sprinkle of sea salt and call it bueno.

Serving the cod salad  with cherry tomatoes, avocado, and roasted pumpkin seeds, along with a homemade basil-walnut pesto as the dressing takes this fishuation (<- get it? fish…situation…buhdumching…??) up another 17k notches.

So let’s do it already!

Have you tried my Mediterranean Salmon in Parchment Paper or Citrus Ginger Turmeric Parchment Paper Salmon yet? While I’m a big fan of My Go-To Crispy Salmon, prepared per the broiling method, I also love the way fish and seafood turns out when cooked in parchment paper.

The fish turns out so nice and moist, buttery, flaky, and flavorful. The delicate texture and lovely flavor make it a win for a fancy date night in, yet the recipe is quick and easy enough to prepare for any given weeknight.
