I tried this last night and it's fabulous. We like spicy food and this was just right. I buy and peel about a pound of ginger at a time, then put it in the food processor until really minced up. Wrap it up in a long thin roll in plastic and it freezes well; then you will always have fresh ginger!
oh my, this recipe was everything I ever want ... very flavourful, quick and easy. I'm going to dice and freeze the rest of my green tomatoes so that I can make this dish again (and again & again). I used cod and served it w/brown rice, green beans & curried cabbage. I will also try it with tofu.
Looks good. Never seen green tomatoes for sale anywhere; but you can grow 'em in a pot, even if you live in an apartment! They are quite tart, very different from red, so if you're using red, consider increasing the vinegar/lime juice.
Excellent! Will add this to my make ahead and freeze meals. Used coley as it's an inexpensive sustainable fish in these parts. Served over rice one day and lentils the next. I did use fresh red tomatoes.
I love the green tomato sauce especially in summer when I have plenty of green tomatoes in the garden and my son comes visiting to go fishing with his local buddies (he always leaves me with several pounds of cleaned fresh fish) So I will save this recipe for then. Sounds so delish and we love spicy
This dish sounds yummy. My son and I both love spicy food and fish so this would be great for us. I will try it as soon as I get the ingredients. Thanks for the info on ginger. I will try that as well.
