Saucy Halibut and Cauliflower Curry


    Use a food processor for speedy prep. Puréeing the onions and tomatoes with spices helps the flavours blend faster, which means cooking time is slashed.


    1 sweet onion, coarsely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, cut in half
    2 tsp (10 mL) grated ginger
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    2 cups (500 mL) canned diced tomatoes
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) balsamic vinegar
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) curry powder
    2 tsp (10 mL) palm sugar
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) sea salt
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) cayenne pepper
    2 cups (500 mL) canned no-salt chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    1 head cauliflower, cut into small pieces
    1 lb (450 g) skinless halibut fillet or other white fish, cut into 4 pieces
    3 green onions, sliced, or 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped cilantro

    In a food processor, purée sweet onion with garlic and ginger.

    Heat oil in a large, wide saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion purée but don’t wipe out inside of food processor. Stir often until onions turn soft and translucent, 5 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in food processor, purée tomatoes with balsamic vinegar, curry powder, sugar, salt, and cayenne pepper.

    Once onions are soft, stir tomato mixture, chickpeas, and cauliflower into pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Cover and simmer to let flavours blend, about 15 minutes. Then stir in fish. Cover and continue to simmer until fish is cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in green onion or cilantro. Serve with warm naan bread.
