Thai Fish with Mango and Coconut Milk

Fish with Mango and Coconut Milk- A Thai Dish
It might be some time before I write part 2 of my kolkata trip. Specially with Christmas just around the corner, with lights all around, insane shoppers, carol singers at Tesco, red coats and jumping kids, I am tempted to give in to the festivity. So Kolkata trip will be back later, for now let me enjoy Christmas. I will buy and decorate my tree tomorrow and do bit of shopping (insane of course) for loved ones (for those who are here in London, and those still staying in Kolkata will be forgotten!!!!!!! ). However, as of today, I am doing bit of cooking, keeping with the Christmas spirit.
I am making two fish dish-one Thai and one Italian dish. Both the fish dishes are very easy and very very quick. If you are thinking what to eat during the Christmas breaks, it might be interesting to cook oriental one day and Italian the other among of course the usual Christmassy cooking.  Both the fish dishes goes well with white rice, Pasta, noodle or on their own making them versatile. Moreover, if you are treating people, this might bring interesting twist as fusion food along with traditional Christmas roast and Brussels sprout. Who says we cannot deviate –  I would! Well, I did!
