    I used tilapia & (fresh) spinach, like several others who have commented, & it was FANTASTIC. My husband just raved about it. I served it with sides of brown Basmati rice, chop salad, & Latin beans. This is definitely going to the top of our list of favorites! - 12/31/08

    This is very good! I have made it several times already. You can easily reduce the amount of fat (cooking oil) used quite a bit if you want to cut the fat content down. - 12/4/07

    This was excellent! I didn't have fresh ginger so used ground instead. Had Talipia in the freezer so I used that as well. Oh, opened tomatoe sauce by accident so I used a little more than half can. It was still delicious. Next time, I'll get it right and I know it will be superb! - 12/7/08

    I made this with frozen chopped spinach because I didn't have zucchini. It was very good. I think I would prefer it to zucchini. Also added a little cayenne for a little kick. - 8/4/08

    I LOVE INDIAN FOOD. I USE THIS RECIPE ONLY WITH CHICKEN BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE FISH ON HAND. WILL TRY IT WITH FISH NEXT TIME. THIS RECIPE IS AWESOME . REGRAMA WAS ASKING WHERE THE CURRY SPICE WAS . WELL THE CURRY SPICE IS THE TURMERIC, CHILI POWDER, CORIANDER, CUMIN GINGER ROOT - ALL PUT TOGETHER. - 7/22/09

    REDGRAMA, Curry Powder isn't a spice, it's a mix of spices. I believed it was developed for colonial English in India to tone down flavors and for convenience. All authentic Indian food is made with individual spices to vary flavors from dish to dish, better than the sameness of curry powder. - 5/24/09

    I'm not a huge fan of fish, but this was quite tasty over brown basmati rice. I cut the oil in half and added a bit of Cajun spice for a little extra kick. MY DH liked it as well. - 7/31/08

    Didn't have fresh ginger or zucchini so used ground ginger (pinch) and summer squash. Worked perfectly. Also subbed 3tsp McCormick Gourmet Hot Madras Curry Powder (contains all spices listed in recipe) along with a pinch of chili powder for spices listed. Also used Tilapia. - 8/1/09

    I can get tilapia for about a third of the cost of halibut, so I'm going to try the recipe using tilapia as others have. Also I have some opa squash that I'll use instead of zucchini. They are very similar. You could probably use any summer squash you have. - 7/22/09

    If it's a CURRY, where is the curry spice??? Also
    10 minutes is not long enough to cook the tomatoes.
    Better off using fresh chopped tomatoes & fat free
    fish stock or clam juice for the liquid. - 5/24/09

  • I can't get halibut here in the Falkland Islands so I'm going to use Toothfish or Kingklip which will raise the calorie level slightly but not enough to stop me trying this recipe - 1/3/12

  • I call this "Indian Food Lite," both for the low-fat/low-calorie aspect, but also because it just didn't get to the filling, comfort food satisfaction of Indian restaurant food. I think it is the missing ghee. Since I need to cut back on calories and fat (and forget about the ghee), this was good. - 8/30/10

    I made this for the kids. I married into an Indian family, so I thought this would blow them away. It was bland and had no taste. They wouldn't eat it. I gave the fish to the dog and threw the rest out. - 6/10/10

  • I made this pretty much as described but used monkfish instead of halibut. It was great, and will go into the regular rotation. The only thing I would change next time is to add a little lemon juice or tamarind water to make it a little more acid. We served with brown basmati rice and mixed veg. - 5/30/10
