Surf and Turf Coconut Curry

This is a fantastic upscale version on Surf and Turf, let me tell you. It is also hyper local…the spice rub, the sausage, the fish and the prawns. Make this.



  1. Preheat a large pot or a high sided fry pan on medium-high heat.  Add the oil and then the sausage.  We want to give the sausage a bit of a head start on the rest of the ingredients, so brown them nicely.
  2. Once you turn the sausage on to the last side, add the turmeric, ginger and red onion to the pan and saute, stirring regularly for a few minutes.
  3. Add in the red peppers and saute for another few minutes and then carefully add the coconut milk.
  4. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan and release any stuck on goodness.
  5. Now add the spices and bring to a simmer.  Once simmering, cover your vessel with a lid and allow it to simmer for 6 or 7 minutes, trying to keep the sausages nestled into the coconut milk.
  6. Now you can add the rockfish, nestle into the coconut milk, place a lid on it and simmer for 4 or 5 minutes.
  7. Finally, add the prawns, cover and simmer for another 1 – 2 minutes.
  8. Give a good stir and we are ready to serve.  You can enjoy this as a chowder as is or perhaps make it a hearty meal and serve over-top of rice, quinoa or noodles.


Make this a hearty chowder by adding cooked, diced potatoes and/or yams as well as black beans or chickpeas.

    I live in the South Surrey/White Rock area. Where could I buy the Triple Smoke hickory dill?

      They are available at all Country Grocers. Not sure about Surrey though. Here is their website.

    I assumed the sausage is cut into pieces? I did that so it was bite sized and consistent with the other ingredients. I also added some bite sized chicken breast pieces. This was a delicious recipe and I’ll make it again.
