This recipe is adapted from one I had recently in Norway with Eva. It’s so nourishing and simple to make.
1 red onion
2 teas turmeric
Whole red chilli (medium heat)
4 garlic cloves
2 cups fresh herbs – Tarragon (essential), Parsley, Dill, Oregano, Thyme (whatever you feel to use)
1 big fennel bulb (or two medium)
1 400ml tin coconut milk
600g cod loin
Water and/or fish stock
In a blender, put around 2 cups of fresh herbs – I used tarragon, parsley and thyme (no stalks)
Add garlic and chilli
1/2 cup water to blend into a fine paste consistency
Cut and prepare onion, fennel and fish into cubes
Boil the kettle
Sautee onion in olive oil till soft
Add fennel and fresh herb paste
Add 1/2 cup boiled water (or fish stock) just half the depth of fennel
Simmer 10 mins
Add fish and coconut milk
Simmer 10 mins
Blend all at the end to a smooth, thick consistency
Swap water for stock if you want
A goodly portion of ground black pepper
Use the water to rinse the herb blender so you get every grain of green goodness
Don’t put the herb stalks in, the paste becomes a little too stalky
I’ve also made this without the coconut milk altogether – just add a little more water – equally delicious!!

THANK U 4 SENDING THE “FISH RECIPE” !!!! … I USE “COCONUT MILK” IN ALMOST EVERYTHING …. I LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!!! (EVEN THO THAT IS ALSO OFF MY FOOD GROUP CAUSE COCONUT PRODUCES ITS OWN SUGAR WHICH ACTIVATES MY “CANDIDA” … BUT I THINK I WILL CHEAT THIS TIME !!! LOL … ILL TELL U HOW IT TURNS OUT !!! … THANKS AGAIN … LOVE & LITE , INA
Hi Ina 🙂 try it with half coconut milk, half water. And do let me know how your body feels after having it 🙂 Love, Sarah
I made this yummy fish soup, but replaced the coconut milk with a can of tinned tomatoes, and i left the fish in chunks. A completely different twist.
