Dear SOS: A friend of mine just came back from fishing in Mexico and gave me a giant yellowtail fish head. But I can’t find a recipe for fish head curry, a dish of Singapore. Is my 10-pound yellowtail appropriate for curry? Your assistance in this matter is appreciated since my wife is threatening to throw the fish head out of the freezer.
Dear Paul: I can’t understand why your wife wouldn’t be thrilled at having a 10-pound fish head in her freezer. This recipe is from http://www.newasia-singapore.com. It called for a red snapper head, but your yellowtail head will work.
We used four fish heads weighing 1 3/4 pounds. You may have to adjust the recipe.
