Sustainable Choice. Look for Alaskan halibut and U.S. wild or farmed shrimp.

The fish fillets should fit rather snugly in the pot with enough room for some shrimp to slip between the crevices. The braising liquid is a nifty mixture of chicken broth, white wine, and Thai green curry paste--available in most supermarkets these days. Fresh, never frozen, halibut is best; if you can't find it, sub another meaty white fish or Alaskan salmon.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and butter to pan; swirl until butter melts. Add leeks; sauté 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and carrots; sauté 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Sprinkle salt evenly over both sides of fillets; arrange fillets and shrimp in a single layer on top of carrot mixture.

Step 2

Combine broth, wine, and curry paste in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add curry mixture to pan with fish; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Place 1 fillet in each of 4 shallow soup bowls; divide shrimp, vegetables, and broth evenly among servings. Sprinkle each serving with 1 1/2 teaspoons mint.

Excellent and very light yet flavorful broth. I used flounder fillets because halibut was very expensive. Depending on the size of the shrimp, may want to add those during last 5 minutes or so of cooking time as suggested by the previous reviewer.

This dish was outstanding! So moist, light, and great flavors! Mint paired really nicely with subtle curry flavor. Better than any restaurant thai food I've had. Only recommendation would be to cook fish first and then add shrimp in for last 5 minutes of cooking, because the shrimp cook a lot faster than the fish, which made the shrimp overdone.
