Katsu Fish Curry


I have been waiting to share this one with you. I'm a huge fan of Jap food. The flavours are usually clean and fresh. As the weather gets cooler, I find myself cooking more curries and one pot oven dishes.

Instead of cooking the fish in the curry, I decided to serve the Japanese curry as a side. This was also my first attempt using Panko breadcrumbs and I really like the texture crumbed effect it gave to the fish.



Katsu Fish Curry (serve 2)

4 slices of white fish fillets
1 cup of panko bread crumbs
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup of olive oil

1 small sweet potato peeled and chopped
1 carrot peeled and chopped
1 cup of beans chopped
1 portion of Japanese Curry paste (I used Golden Curry S&B 'hot')
1 tsp of hot chili powder (optional)
1 cup of water (or abit more)

Pat fish dry with paper towls. Coat fish with egg then panko breadcrumbs. Heat about 1/4 cup of oil in pan. Fry fish both sides till nice and golden.

Meanwhile, cooking vegetables in a seperate pot. Add a cup of water and simmer till the vegetables are nearly cooked through. Add curry paste-stir. Add a tsp of chili powder and continue to stir. Add more water if the mixture looks too thick. Simmer for another 15 minutes or so.

Serve with rice.

Oooh, those Panko breadcrumbs do give the fish a different sorta look, dunnit? And good idea to serve the curry on the side... it keeps the fish nice and crispy, no?

Elsewise, I'm looking forward to reading about more of your one pot dishes that you're making for the cool weather. Me, I'm a fan of them simply because it's easier for a bachelor just to dump everything in one pot! :P

w00t! Golden Curry S&B 'hot" my favorite in the kitchen too if I want it fast! Sometimes, I just used the curry gravy on sauteed ground beef :D

What is the difference between normal and Panko bc? I am not a fan of Japanese curry, but the fish looks great.

u know how to make katsu don? the marinade and the gravy is the key i think... i'm too lazy to look up the recipe ;p

mmm... I love anything breaded in Panko bread crumbs. For the record, they are crunchier, and have a bit of yeast in them, so they turn crispy and golden brown and delicious without getting soggy (like normal bread crumbs sometimes do). The curry looks awesome, too!
