Thai inspired spicy fish fillets

Thai inspired spicy fish fillets

The first time I had a similar dish, was in a Thai restaurant in Hong Kong. I was blown away by the mix of flavors and wanted to recreate it at home. 

Serves 4


4 fish fillets- any kind will do
1 kg cherry tomatoes
4 cloves of garlic
1 jalapeno cut in rounds with seeds
1 chilli pepper cut in rounds with seeds
2 tsp ginger- grated
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp caraway seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp coconut sugar
2 tsp harissa
2 lemons
Fresh cilantro


  1. Wash and pat dry the fish fillets. Set aside.
  2. Saute the garlic, peppers and ginger.
  3. Adds the dried herbs, sugar and harissa. Mix well.
  4. Add the cherry tomatoes and mix well till the tomatoes have softened.
  5. Add some water, turn to low heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes.
  6. Add the fish fillets and add some salt- be careful on the salt, always taste first. Let it simmer for 15 minutes.
  7. Add the lemon juice and turn off the heat.
  8. Serve with quinoa, extra lemon wedges and fresh cilantro.
