Fish Curry with Potatoes (6)

Another Bangladeshi recipe from Rick Stein’s ” Far Eastern Odyssey”. They would use a local river fish could Rui, but you have to adapt to what is available. A firmer fish works best, other fish can be used but may break up a bit during cooking.

Prawn Pilaf (4)

Rick Stein’s “Seafood Odyssey” was published in 1999 and I have a few favourite recipes from that book to share. Living in north London at the time, every weekend we would visit the shellfish stall at Chapel Market to buy pints of freshly cooked shell on North Atlantic Prawns and a tub of cockles, or sometimes a crab. We would eat the prawns with mayonnaise or use them to make one of several prawn curry recipes we liked. This was usually followed by a visit to the famous fishmonger Steve Hatt’s on Essex Road to complete our shopping . This is a simple supper dish to enjoy with some chilled white wine .
