Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 2 to 4
- 2 - 4 cod or tilapia white fish fillets
- 1 - 2 tablespoons green curry paste
- 1 can (14 ounces) coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons fish sauce
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 large lime, zested and juiced
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro (divided)
- 1 red Thai chili or red jalapeno, chopped

Here's how to make it:
