  • Servings:Serves 4
  • Prep Time:20 minutes
  • Cook Time:15 minutes
1. Heat oil in a large, high-sided skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add pepper and shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables begin to soften, about 4 minutes.
2. Add curry paste, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add coconut milk, fish sauce, lime zest and juice, and brown sugar and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.
3. Nestle cod and bok choy in skillet, then cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until fish flakes easily with a fork and bok choy is wilted, 6 to 8 minutes; remove from heat.
4. Divide rice among four shallow bowls and top with cod and bok choy. Sprinkle bowls evenly with cashews and cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
