I’ve been making a lot of single bowl dinners recently and these Easy Cod Curry Bowls might be my favorite that I’ve made. They have big flavor but are very healthy at the same time.

If you are looking to change-up dinner, I highly recommend trying this recipe out. It’s a great intro to curry recipes and is a wonderful use of cod, a versatile fish that is flakey and wonderful in a curry broth.

I used some Lingcod from my Premium Sitka Salmon Subscription for this recipe and man was it good. I’ve been getting Sitka Salmon Shares for a year now and it’s something I look SO forward to each month. The fish is incredible and the quality is always top-notch.

It is a noticeable difference in quality between their fish and fish at the supermarket and you are supporting small fisheries!

How to Make Cod Curry Bowls

This recipe starts like so many delicious curry broths, with shallot, garlic, and ginger. I used coconut oil for my fat to start the aromatics but you could use any neutral oil.

Starting curry sauce

Once those have softened for a few minutes, add the green curry paste and continue to cook until fragrant. Then add the coconut, chicken stock, soy sauce, and fish sauce. Smelling good!

Once that is simmering, add in the cod. I kept mine in pretty large chunks.

Continue to simmer on low heat until the cod is just cooked and flakey (about 6-8 minutes). Then add the peas and asparagus.

Make sure to buy thin asparagus so it cooks quickly. Save the thick asparagus for the grilling.

Simmering Cod in sauce

That’s all there is to it for these easy Cod Curry Bowls. Serve them up over rice and garnished with cilantro, sesame seeds, and red chiles!

Storage and Reheating

If you have leftovers, this actually keeps really well in the fridge for a few days. Reheat it gently on the stovetop and it’s possibly even better than on day one as the flavors can meld together.
