How To Make It:
  • Start cooking a pot of rice. Long grain rice like Jasmine works well for this. 
  • Saute the onion on medium heat in a lightly oiled pan until translucent. 
  • Add the garlic, ginger, lemongrass, and stir things around until they start to really smell awesome. 
  • Add the coconut milk and curry paste. Stir well to incorporate. 

Curry recipe

  • Turn up the temperature so that your liquids start to bubble. Allow the liquid to evaporate and reduce until thickened, almost like a pancake batter. 
  • Lightly season your raw fillets with salt + pepper on both sides.
  • Then, float on top of your coconut curry mixture, cover with a lid and let cook until the walleye is fully cooked through. About 8 minutes.
