If you have a bowl of tomato sauce left in the fridge but don't have enough to season pasta, try our coconut curry sauce recipe! This easy recipe is perfect for avoiding waste and can be adapted to whatever you like, depending on the ingredients you have in your fridge and cupboard.


Here are the ingredients needed to make coconut curry sauce for pasta for 4 people:

a bowl of tomato sauce (preferably homemade)
20 cl of coconut milk
curry powder
1 level teaspoon of ginger powder
chopped chives

The preparation of the coconut curry sauce for pasta is very simple.

1- Heat a frying pan or a sauté pan without adding fat.

4- Add the bowl of homemade tomato sauce and bring this mixture to a small boil.

5- Cut the fish fillets into cubes of about 2 cm square and set aside.

Cooking and finishing

1- Cook the pasta of your choice in a large volume of salted water.

2- About 5 minutes before serving the pasta, add the fish cubes (or shrimps) in your coconut curry sauce.
