Fish with Coconut-Red Curry Sauce

I was immediately intrigued by this delicious-looking Cooking Light recipe when I happened upon it a few months ago, I believe via a Twitter feed.  It took me a while, but I finally got around to making it two weekends ago and it came out great!  The only problem I had was that I didn't have halibut and couldn't find it at the store, so I used flounder instead, which is a much fluffier fish and harder to cook in a pan the way it was specified in the recipe, but at least it cooked quickly.  The following weekend I tried it again with mahi mahi, but I think the curry sauce goes better with the flounder.  Another change I made was that I used white long-grain rice as opposed to basmati, which worked out OK but needed a little more water than stated in the recipe.  It is otherwise a really delicious rice!  Overall, I loved this dish, and I'm going it add it to my regular rotation.
