Green Curry Sauce for fish or chicken

I don't mean to be boastful, but my husband kicks ass.  Can you believe this was entirely his creation?  I come home, and he has made snow peas, coconut rice, and grilled chicken with this delicious sauce.

It's good he's picking up the slack since there's definitely some slack to pick up.

We both loved this meal.  The cilantro, for you haters, is not distinguishable, especially since it's blended so thoroughly.  It's not spicy, just pure savory ginger garlic yum.  I can't think of anything it wouldn't be yummy on.

Green curry Sauce
adapted from Create

2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/4 cup (24 grams) peeled chopped ginger root
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup (60ml) white wine
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 teaspoons green curry paste
1 13.5 oz can coconut milk
1/2 tsp fish sauce (we subbed soy sauce)
1/2 cup (8 grams) cilantro
Salt, pepper, lime juice to taste

Blend in your blender until pulverized.  Then cook down until it's 1 cup volume.  Serve over chicken, crab cakes, striped bass, what have you.


  1. Glad you substituted soy for fish sauce. Although I love it, I read about how it's made and I am all set. :-)

    1. Yes, no good can come of reading how fish sauce is made...
