Salmon Fish Head Curry

Salmon Fish Head Curry......I still have a Salmon fish head in the freezer from the last purchase.  Decided to use half of the Salmon fish head to cook this spicy curry with the last harvest of the okra from the garden. Threw in one last eggplant from the fridge and added in tamarind juice for a tangy after taste. The fresh curry paste was bought a year ago and frozen for almost a year. I can't believe I have to use sparingly as I am not allowed to go anywhere near the wet market. Once I finished this load, will have to depend on Tean's Gourmet ready vacuum packed curry paste. I  know I will miss this fresh curry paste . Have to adjust to the new norm now. Just this one curry dish is enough to warrant two bowls of rice each 😅 Eat first Diet tomorrow .
