If you're a fan of seafood and spicy flavours, this Speedy Seafood Curry recipe by Mitch Tonks is sure to become a staple in your kitchen. Made with a combination of ling and pollack but you could easily add in Hake also, this curry is both hearty and satisfying. 

British caught Ling and Pollack are two of the most sustainable species of white fish available and, with their firm texture, lend themselves perfectly to curries.

But what sets this dish apart is how quickly it comes together. With just a handful of store cupboard ingredients and minimal prep work, this fish curry is the perfect option for a busy weeknight dinner.

Serve over rice or with some flatbread to soak up all the delicious flavours.
