West Indian Seafood Curry

This is based on a dish our friend had when she went to visit Montego Bay, Jamaica. It's a melting pot of a dish.

1. Heat a dry frying pan and toast the spices over a low heat for 3-4 minutes, or until fragrant. Grind them in a pestle and mortar or a coffee grinder and set aside.

2. Heat the vegetable oil in a wide heavy-based pan, and soften the shallot and the garlic. Add the spices and stir for 30 seconds more. Add the tinned tomatoes, tamarind purée, lime juice, one of the kaffir lime leaves, sugar, hot pepper sauce (if using), the sea salt and a grinding of black pepper. Simmer for 1 minute.

3. Add the fish and simmer for a further 3-5 minutes, or until the fish looked white and is falling apart.

4. Taste for seasoning. If you want, swirl through some coconut cream or yoghurt. Serve with rice and garnish with the other lime leaf, slivered into ribbons, and strips of red pepper.
