Notes

I do not use coconut milk in all my curries. I use GREEK YOGHURT which makes a healthy meal. This curry is best eaten with Basmati Rice or Roti. It tastes better the next day.

Eating fish head curry is an acquired taste - it is either you love it or loathe it. I love it and the Salmon oil is very healthy.
