Mackerel & Steak Fries in Whitened Red Curry

What a disaster.  It started off as a redo of my very first go at Sri Lankan food (see 3.294 Mackerel & Potatoes in Whitened Red Curry), finishing off the leftover curry paste from that meal.  But knowing how hot the curry would be, I decided to separately prepare the potatoes--"steak fries" (precooked/frozen/bagged)--so that my kid would be able to eat them.  However, I left the potatoes in the oven for a bit too long, not quite burned but to the point of being inedibly dry; I suspect that they wouldn't have been any good regardless.  Anyway, in a salvage attempt, I added them to the curry, which succeeded in rehydrating the potatoes--though they were still pretty bad--and sucking up all the liquid in the process.  Ultimately, I was left with a goopy mess.  It didn't help that the mackerel was also a bit fishy.  Unpalatable, as far as I was concerned (but again, for some reason, the nanny seemed to like it).
