This was our dinner on Saturday and Sunday :) The curry sauce was awesome, so very spicy and full of flavour, but the fish I bought was way too bony. We spent the whole dinner picking little bones out of our bowls, so we couldn't appreciate the meal properly :( I'd like to try this with a better piece of fish. My husband loved it though, even with all the fish bones he had to pick out.
