It’s as good as it looks.
This is a simple red curry sauce with some veggies and the mild whitefish, cod. If you’re not a fish fan, you could certainly substitute the white fish for small pieces of chicken, beef or pork. Also, this would be amazing with salmon too!
Tip for slow cooking fish: remove any skin and then add to the whole fish into the sauce in the slow cooker. Once the fish is slow cooked, it will be very easy to “flake it” out into smaller bite size pieces.
Also, the basil garnish…don’t skip that on this one. It really completes the flavor profile of this meal!
