1. Place all 'Thai Curry Sauce' ingredients in a food processor, chopper, or blender. Process well to form a smooth curry sauce.
2. Pour the sauce into a wok (or large frying pan) and place over medium to high heat. If you have kaffir lime leaves, add them too. Bring to a boil.
3. Add fish, mushrooms, and red pepper. Stir well. Reduce heat to medium-high, or until it is simmering nicely. Cover and cook 6-8 minutes.
4. Add the tomatoes and gently stir in. Continue simmering (covered) for another 2-3 minutes.
5. Do a taste test for salt and sweetness, adding more fish sauce (instead of salt) until salty enough. If too sour for your taste, add a little more sugar. If too salty or sweet, add 1-2 Tbsp. fresh lime (or lemon) juice.
6. Slide the fish with curry sauce and vegetables onto a serving platter or into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with fresh basil and coriander. Garnish with lime or lemon wedges and serve hot with rice. The fish curry recipe of Thai is ready to serve.. Enjoy!
