Fish on Friday? No problem. With this Red Curry Fish Sliders recipe, you'll look forward to Fridays!
A nice battered fried fish has to be one of the best foods out there.
I love it on a sandwich, but this time I wanted to make something a little different. I decided to put a little red curry paste right into the batter and use a mint raita instead of the traditional tartar sauce. I loved the unexpected curry flavor in the batter, and it matched perfectly with the sauce!
I made these slider-sized for a really fun party app, but feel free to make a meal-sized version for a great weekend lunch.
For the raita, mix some yogurt with a little mayo, mint, cucumber, onion, and garlic. Let this sit while you make the rest of the meal. If you do make the raita the day before, it will taste even better!
Whisk the curry paste into a few splashes of the water. Then add the rest of the water and ice cubes.
The flour and cornstarch go in next.
This should be a thin batter, even thinner than pancake batter. The fish was just lightly dredged in flour, and then it gets battered.
Fry the fish for about 5 minutes, until crispy and cooked through.
Assemble the sandwiches and serve them immediately.
So juicy, and just a subtle curry flavor with that lovely mint sauce!
