  • ¼ tsp Coriander seed
  • ¼ tsp Black pepper
  • 1 cup Coconut milk

DIRECTIONS

  1. Blend the ingredients of the roasted Thai Chiang Mai curry altogether and marinade black cod overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Scrape off any excess marinade from cod and bake in an oven-proof non-stick pan or on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 19 minutes.
  4. In a blender or using a hand blender, puree roasted red pepper.
  5. Meanwhile, soak vermicelli in boiled water for 2.5 mins. Drain and let cool.
  6. Mix noodles, sesame oil, soya sauce, and red pepper puree. Season with salt to taste.
  7. Heat 3 tbsp of vegetable oil in a small non-stick pan on high heat. Add noodle mixture.
  8. Reduce heat and leave noodle mixture undisturbed until it starts to dry and a crust forms on the bottom.
  9. The noodle cake should hold together when you flip it.
  10. Cook undisturbed on this side until a crust forms. You can plate the noodle cake.
  11. Meanwhile, season the cut kumato tomatoes and place them around the noodle cake as desired.
  12. Place the fresh spinach on top of the noodle cake and the cod on top of the spinach.
  13. Garnish with 1 tbsp of sambal oelek and cilantro.
  14. Serve with fresh lime.

TIPS AND TRICKS
