Bacon-stuffed dory with creamy curry sauce

One of my favorite cartoons was “Finding Nemo”. As far as I can remember, I’ve already watched it more than 10 times and whenever it’s being played by my nieces, I will automatically turn into a little boy who wanted to see the funny scenes and events. I think, I will never be fed-up with this movie.
Dory, voiced by Ellen De Generes is for me, the best cartoon character than human have invented. The scene that I love was when they are being chased by the shark and dory read the “Esssscuuhhpeeehh!!!!” during the time that they are looking for exit and thought it only sounded as escape.
Dory is actually a Blue Tang fish, a native to the Indo-Pacific hiding along rocks. They are actually edible, but much better if kept in the wild as it only contains very little meat and quite cute for food. According to Live Aquaria, Blue Tang Fishes are sold as pet for salt water aquarium owners.
The dory is actually another breed of edible fish that is quite popular anywhere where there is human. The name is shared by members of several families of large-eyed, silver, flat-bodied and roughly discoed fish. The flesh, when cooked is quite tasty and soft that you can crash it using your tongue.
A brother of mine cooked this by wrapping the dory flesh inside a bacon, breaded and deep fried. It’s quite tasty, but it’s unnamed yet. So, I called it Bacon-stuffed dory with creamy curry sauce.
Here are the ingredients:
- 1 kilo of dory strips/fillet
- 1/2 kilo bacon
- 5-10 pieces of young carrots
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 spoon curry powder
- onion, chopped
- garlic, minced
- salt (pinch) and pepper to taste
- Wrap the dory strips on bacon (dory balls) and seal it using tooth pick.
- Bread it with chicken breading and deep fry until golden brown.
- In a separate pan, boil the carrots with water and little vinegar until soft, drain and set aside.
- Saute garlic and onions.
- Add coconut milk and bring into boil, let some water to evaporate.
- Add curry powder, seasonings, salt and pepper.
- Add the dory balls and simmer for a while.
- Plate it with the carrots and serve.
