Cod is one of my fish go-to's. You have fish go-to's right? 

You always need some healthy staples on hand so you don't hit the end of the day with no idea what to cook, and no food in the house. Salmon and cod are my two main fish mainstays.

Thai coconut curry cod

I always have frozen salmon and cod in the freezer. I've talked about how to source good fish before in my recipe for cod with mint chimichurri. Today I'm offering a healthy new twist with a poached cod in Thai coconut curry broth.

This paleo recipe looks and feels kind of fancy but really is quite easy.

Poaching fish classes things up. 

All that's involved with poaching is cooking fish in a broth. This broth happens to be super flavorful with Thai coconut curry spices.

You'll want a big spoon to lap up the sauce. You can serve the poached cod in a whole piece in some of the Thai curry broth, or you can break up the pieces for minimal utensil work while eating.

I served the cod and broth over curried cauliflower rice, but you can use regular cauliflower rice or nothing at all.
