Number of Servings: 3


    teaspoons vegetable oil
    1/3 cup chopped shallots
    1 tablespoon minced peeled ginger
    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    1 1/2 cups reduced-fat (light) coconut milk
    2 to 3 teaspoons Thai red curry paste (see notes)
    1 teaspoon firmly packed brown sugar
    2 teaspoons fish sauce
    1 pound Garnet or Jewel sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    1 pound boned, skinned catfish fillets, cut into 2-inch pieces
    3 cups lightly packed spinach leaves, rinsed
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    2 tablespoons lime juice


1. Pour oil into a 12-inch frying pan (with 2-in.-tall sides) or a 5- to 6-quart pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add shallots, ginger, and garlic and stir often until shallots are limp, about 5 minutes. Stir in coconut milk, curry paste, brown sugar, and fish sauce. Bring to a simmer.

2. Stir in sweet potatoes; reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Gently stir in catfish, cover, and cook until sweet potatoes are tender and fish is opaque but still moist-looking in the center (cut to test), 8 to 10 minutes longer.
3. Stir in spinach, cilantro, and lime juice and serve immediately.

  • Excellent! Flavorful, easy, filling! I did add some red bell pepper - only because I had an abundance. I didn't have any lime juice. I'm sure that would enhance the flavor. Next time I make it I'll be sure to have some on hand. thanks for a great recipe! - 7/31/12
