I don't know where my mom found this recipe, but I remember eating it when I was little. This is a great recipe for when you don't have time to watch everything in the kitchen, but it's nice enough that I've served it to company!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat water, onion, butter, curry powder, and salt in a large skillet over medium heat until butter is melted, about 2 minutes. Stir rice into onion mixture and arrange frozen white fish over rice. Sprinkle with almonds.

  • Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes. Fish should be heated through, and the flesh should be opaque and flake easily. Mix in peas and fluff rice with a fork before serving.

Really great recipe! I followed it more closely than I normally do with recipes but I did make a couple of minor adjustments...I more than doubled the amount of (spicy) curry powder because we like strong flavors substituted extra virgin olive oil for the butter (next time I might try coconut oil instead to add a hint of sweetness) and I cooked the rice and pea mixture on the stovetop and broiled the tilapia fillets with the almonds on the top rack of my oven. Other than that I followed it exactly and was extremely happy with how it turned out...even my picky(ish) seven year old ate a whole plate of it! Read More

Had to create an account to rate this recipe. I barely ever use recipes and usually just make my own , but this is what I live for. The easiest meals that are nutritious and simple to cook. Great easy recipe, only thing I tweaked was curry powder because I love lots of spice. This can probably be done in rice cooker too. Read More

Hate to rate when I didn't follow recipe exactly but this was excellent . Changes were...I dislike peas so I added some chopped fresh broccoli when about 10 minutes left to cook. I also sautéed mushrooms and celery along with the onion before adding the water and curry powder. Lots of flavour...thanks for the great recipe. Read More

This was a wonderful and easy recipe, with a nice flavor and texture that I plan on making again. My tweaks were sweating 1/2 cup diced onion, 1/2 cup diced green pepper, 1 carrot peeled and diced and 1 tablespoon minced garlic in the butter first for about 10 minutes. Then I added 2 cups of unsalted chicken stock and a whole tablespoon of curry powder. No salt! Brought to a boil, added 1 cup white rice, placed my cut up cod fillets on top and then simmered on low with lid for 20 minutes. After 20, I removed from heat and let it continue to steam without lifting lid for another 10. Folded in 1 cup canned drained peas while fluffing the rice, and added 2 tablespoons coconut aminos (a low sodium soy substitute). served with unsalted dry roasted peanuts. DELICIOUS! Read More
