Directions

  • Cut the white fish into 2cm pieces and add fish to a glass or ceramic bowl.
  • Extract the juice of 2 fresh limes or lemons (around 1/2 cup and you can mix the two if limes out of season),and add citrus juice to the fish. 
  • Finely slice the onion and add this too with the salt. 
  • Cover and leave in fridge for an hour.   Marinating raw fish in lemon or lime juice ‘cooks’ the fish from the citrus acids, causing the flesh to whiten. The longer you marinate the fish, the more flavour develops.
  • Once fish has marinated, add the coconut cream along with the diced up capsicum, tomato, carrot and coriander and stir through. Place bowl back in fridge for another 10-20 mins to allow flavours to seep through. You can then serve. Generally the longer the time marinating, the great the flavour. 
  • Added extra: Adding diced up fresh mango or fresh chilli
