Several weeks ago I published an article about how we eat greens, and I mentioned a curry recipe that we like. I don't like fish, but it's good in this dish. We could get a smoked fish (they called it "smoked salmon" but it wasn't actually salmon. It was really good, though.) Of course, you could make it with chicken, or even with pork or beef too. Use whatever you have available! :-)

I have a hard time sharing recipes like this, because most of the time when I'm cooking I just add a bit of this and a bit of that until it looks good. I use recipes for baked goods, but not for main dishes! So the amounts I'm giving here are "guess-timates" and you'll have to taste as you go and make it the way you like it. :-)

Fish Curry

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, crushed or grated

fresh ginger, about 1", grated

3 Tbsp curry powder

2 Tbsp vinegar

1/4 c. tomato paste

Salt to taste

1 c. water or chicken broth

1 c. smoked fish or other meat (use more if you can)

1 c. chopped, cooked greens similar to spinach (or about 4 c. fresh chopped greens)

2/3 c. yogurt, milk, or coconut milk (more if needed)

Fry onion in a few tablespoons of oil until soft. Add garlic and ginger and fry a few minutes longer. Meanwhile, combine curry powder and vinegar to make a paste. Add to onion mixture and fry a few more minutes, stirring constantly to keep from burning (it's great if you have a non-stick skillet for this!). Add tomato paste, mix well. Add water and meat (and fresh greens, if that's what you're using). Simmer for 15-30 minutes to blend flavors (or long enough to cook meat, if using raw meat.) Add greens and yogurt/milk and leave over heat just until warm through. Serve over rice - or millet - or even with potatoes.
