Coconut lime poached fish

Recommended Posts

Mate of mine gave me this recipe.  Super easy and delicious.  You can also make the poaching liquid in advance and freeze it. Then you just defrost it, bring it to the boil then add your fresh catch.

400ml can coconut cream
4 kaffir lime leaves
1 lime, zested, juiced
1tbs fish sauce
1tbs brown sugar
2 red chillies, sliced
1 garlic clove, crushed
4 x pieces of fish
250g snow peas, trimmed
Steamed rice
Shredded spring onion and coriander, to serve

1. Combine coconut milk, kaffir lime leaves, lime juice and zest, fish sauce, sugar, chilli and garlic in a wok and bring to boil

2. Add fish and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer gently for 8-10 Mins (or until fish flakes)

3. Add snow peas and simmer for 2 mins

4. Serve fish on bed of rice, spooning on so e liquid and top with spring onions and coriander

I made it tonight with some flathead fillets I had in the freezer and it was awesome!
