Have you ever tried Red Snapper? It’s a lean fish with a firm texture, and a mildly sweet taste. We use this tropical fish to make a colorful fish curry that s healthy, full of flavor and ready to eat in less than 30 minutes. Serve over rice for a satisfying and nourishing midweek meal. Jamaican curry powder generally packs a little less spice than Indian curry powders, but you can substitute an Indian curry powder if you don’t mind a bit more heat. If you don’t have this powder at home, you can easily make your own Jamaican curry powder by mixing a teaspoon of each ground coriander, cumin, turmeric, mustard seeds, and allspice.
