Buttery Corvina served on top of  Idaho® potatoes with a luscious sauce that combines the bright tang of tomato with the warm spice of curry. It is a perfect bite. 



Directions for Crispy Potatoes:
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C).
  2. Line sheet pan with parchment paper and lightly spray the parchment with cooking spray. This will help to ensure we don't have to pry the potatoes off, leaving our crunchy outside stuck to the paper.
  3. Soak potatoes (as described above), pat dry with paper towels and place in a large bowl with 2 tablespoons of canola oil. Toss to evenly coat potatoes and lay them on the parchment-lined sheet pan, put in the oven on the middle rack.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip potatoes over. Rotate the pan and slide back into the oven for another 10-15 minutes, until potatoes are crispy and cooked through. Sprinkle with a fat pinch of kosher salt while they are still warm.

*Your oven may run hot or cold, so times may vary! Keep an eye on the potatoes after you've flipped them.

Directions for Corvina:
  1. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and drizzle in 2 tablespoons of canola oil.
  2. Sprinkle both sides of the Corvina with kosher salt and white pepper, place fish in the pan, good side down, and cook for 8-10 minutes. Using a fish spatula, carefully flip the fish over and cook for another 5 minutes. The time will vary depending on the thickness of the fish.
  3. Remove the fish and set it aside. DO NOT CLEAN OUT THE PAN.
  4. Add in garlic and let it sauté for a minute, then add in coconut milk, curry powder and tomatoes. Let the sauce cook down for 10 minutes over medium-low heat, then add fish back into the pan along with the peas. Season with salt and pepper to your taste. Simmer on low heat for another 5 minutes, until fish is warmed through.
  5. Place potatoes on the plate and ladle sauce over them. Place fish on top and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
