How to make it
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Place the fish stock, cream and curry into an ovenproof saute pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Season the fish with salt and pepper (white pepper works well here) and place in the curry mixture, turning to cover the fish with sauce. Cover the pan and pop it into the oven. Cook for 5 - 7 minutes (depending on thickness of fish) or until JUST cooked through. Do NOT overcook the fish.
- Remove fish, cover lightly with foil. Bring the sauce to a boil over a medium heat and either allow to reduce slightly or add your cornstarch slush. Stir until thickened. Stir in lemon juice.
- Place the fish on top of plain boiled or steamed white rice. Spoon the sauce over and sprinkle with condiments of choice.
