I am always looking for new ways to prepare fish, since my entire childhood I thought that I hated it

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 (24-ounce) bag fresh spinach, rinsed and dried*
  • 3 medium shallots, diced
  • 2 heaping teaspoons Thai red curry paste
  • 1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can lite coconut milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 4 {6 to 8-ounce} white fish fillets, thawed and skin removed (I used fresh halibut, but you can use Barramundi)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin on the bias
  • 1 whole lime, juiced
  • 3 stalks fresh lemongrass, optional
  • Note: I don't have any problems wilting baby spinach, but I wilt it low and slow with olive oil. Using frozen spinach really doesn't work with this dish, as there is a LOT of water-- and the texture of wilted fresh spinach is hard to beat!
