I made this tonight for dinner at work. I was pretty amazing and went over well. I didn't have any ginger and used mint instead. I am sure not quite the same taste but still very good, almost thai tasting. Keep up the good work.

Makes a fantastic green Thai fish curry.

There are concerns on the internet that this fish, a breed of cat fish, may not always be farmed in the most hygienic of conditions. Mostly sourced in Vietnam there have been stories of all sorts of toxins, such as arsenic, toxic metals and harmful pesticides HOWEVER a BBC program tested a sample and found no problems.
