Flounder on Coconut Curry Sauce 

 

flounder on coconut curry sauce recipe

I don’t cook fish very often, simply because my husband and me are not the biggest fish eaters.
But with a sauce like we had it for last nights dinner even fish tastes good ;)

It’s a Flounder on Coconut Curry Sauce. A lightly sweet taste combined with curry spice just makes the fish melt in your mouth.

You can serve it with rice or any kind of vegetables. I decided to take butternut squash, because the sweet taste just fits fine to the coconut sauce.

All together a very fast, easy and delicious dish, that makes even us eat fish!
