Yellow shark curry in a hurry

This recipe has been created by the amazing Chef Sam Gowing. Here’s what she has to say about it:

“Our native ingredients are exceptionally medicinal and complement our robust, innovative Australian cuisine beautifully. This recipe has been designed to incorporate local ingredients, produce and support suppliers of the Northern Rivers region”.
