I have a question about the recipe "Cheap Creamy Chicken Curry " from Table9. Curious to know if the chicken could be substituted with prawns or what other type of fish would you recommend as good substitute?

I think prawns would be fantastic! You could use a firm white fish as well, maybe cod or haddock.

Great, definitely trying prawns the next time I make it. It was ahh-mazing. Thank you!

Here in America, the typical fish selection is so limited and conservative that you can probably sub in almost any inexpensive white-fleshed fish.

Depending on where you live, this might be cod, catfish, halibut, tilapia, snapper, grouper, and a few others.

In addition to prawns, scallops would be a reasonable substitution.

Good luck.

I have a few great specialty markets around me, so it shouldn't be a problem finding something! Cod and halibut both sound like a good, simple alternative though.
