In this dish, flaky cod is gently poached in a vibrant sauce that highlights bold flavors of vadouvan curry powder, garlic, and piquant mustard seeds. Smooth, sweet coconut milk perfectly tempers the spice of the sauce, which is readily absorbed by a bed of nutty brown rice.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Fill a small pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high Wash and dry the fresh produce. If necessary, peel 2 cloves of garlic; roughly chop. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Halve the peppers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Depending on their size, quarter or halve the tomatoes into bite-sized pieces. Combine in a bowl. Quarter the lime. Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. 

Cook the rice:
2 Cook the rice:

Add the rice to the pot of boiling water and cook, uncovered, 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly. 

Cook the vegetables:
3 Cook the vegetables:

While the rice cooks, in a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic and mustard seeds (carefully, as the mustard seeds may pop as they cook). Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined. Add the prepared peppers and tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened and the tomatoes begin to break down.

Cook, without stirring, 8 to 12 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Carefully transfer the cooked fish to a cutting board; using two forks, flake into bite-sized pieces.
