To Serve

  • ½ cup picked coriander leaves
  • 1 lime cut into wedges

  • Before you start, preheat oven to 200°C.

  • Add coconut milk, fish sauce and honey and bring to a simmer. Once simmering add courgette and fish and bring back to a simmer. Cook for 4-5 minutes, until fish is cooked through and courgette is tender. Remove from heat and season to taste with salt.
  • To finish, pick coriander leaves and cut lime into wedges.
  • Serve cauliflower rice with curry. Sprinkle over coriander and serve lime wedges on the side for squeezing.
