Swordfish Curry


What am I going to cook this evening, coming back from work … ?

Sounds familiar to you ?! You bet ! During the week, sometimes, I could just grab a bowl of cereals and here’s Dinner ! I don’t mind cooking, don’t get me wrong here, but it is just ideas that I am missing …
I like to change, one night is fish, another night is meat, then chicken or pork …  So, during the week end, I sit down and think about the menu for the week, something not too heavy for the evening and also not too long to prepare (kids have to go to school / kindergarden). This recipe is one of my classic, it is easy, quick to prepare and cook, and everyone loves it ! I hope you will to 🙂

Ingredients: (for 5 persons)

– 1kg of swordfish (= 2  1/4 pounds)
– 2 onions
– 1 apple
– 3 garlic cloves
– 4 tomatoes
– 20 cl (1 cup) of coconut milk
– 2 tbsp of cream (optional)
– 2 tbsp of curry powder
– 1 tbsp of olive oil
– salt and pepper
– cilantro/coriander (optional)


  1. Cut the onions in small slices and the apple in small cubes
  2. In a large pan, add the olive oil and fry the onions. Add the apple cubes and crushed garlic.
  3. Once they start getting a nice golden colour, add the curry powder, mix well and reduce the heat.
  4. Cut the tomatoes in cubes and add them to the pan, together with the coconut milk (and the cream). Salt & pepper.
  5. Let it cook under low heat for about 10min (do not cover)
  6. Cut the swordfish in 3cmX3cm cubes (1X1 inch) and add them to the sauce.
  7. Let it cook under medium heat for about 12 to 15 min.
  8. I usually serve it with rice. You can also add some fresh coriander on the curry before serving, it will give it a nice fresh twist 🙂
