Serves 4-6


  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp finely grated root ginger
  • 1 tbsp mild curry spice
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp mango chutney
  • 400g tin coconut milk
  • 4 medium monkfish fillets, skinned and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 200g baby spinach leaves
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Steamed basmati rice, to serve
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander


  • Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat and fry the onions and garlic for 4-6 minutes, until golden brown. Stir in the ginger and sweet potato and cook for 1 minute, stirring.
  • Add the curry spice, turmeric, and a pinch of salt and cook for another minute, stirring.
  • Add the tomatoes, mango chutney, and coconut milk. Stir well to combine, then bring to a fast simmer for 3-5 minutes, until the sauce is so well reduced that it is almost sticking to the bottom of the pan, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in the diced monkfish, chickpeas, and lime. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and cover. Simmer about 8 minutes, or until the fish is cooked.
  • Add in the spinach until wilted, and season to taste. Serve with basmati rice.
