Pistachio Crusted Golden Tilefish in Green Curry Coconut Milk Recipe


  • 2 Skinless fillets of tilefish
  • 1 Beaten egg
  • ½ cup ground pistachio nuts
  • ¼ Tsp. Spanish paprika
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 Tbsp. Tupelo honey
  • 1 Tbsp. Thai green curry paste
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  •  ½ cup short flat rice noodles
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion
  • Ground pepper and salt to taste


  1. Mix the ground pistachios with the paprika together; dip the fish into the egg and coat with the ground mixture.
  2. Pan-fry the fish in canola oil on medium heat until the fish is cooked and has a crunchy outer coating. Set aside and keep warm.
  3. Add the next 4 ingredients to the warm pan and stir well.
  4. Add the carrots, bring to a simmer, add rice noodles.
  5. Turn off heat and place a lid on the pan, the rice noodles only need to be hydrated and warmed and they are ready to eat.
  6. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.
  7. Serve the crusted fish on top of the coconut curry mixture and sprinkle with green onions.
  8. I like to drizzle a little tupelo honey over the crispy fish.
  9. *If you prefer a little heat add a ¼ Tsp. dry red chili flakes to the chicken stock stage.
