This meal comes from my Fijian friend Amelia. She was kind enough to cook this very simple yet absolutely delicious meal for us. I highly recommend you give this one a try. You are going to need a meaty, white fish fillet such as Catfish, Mahi-Mahi or Cod. You can usually find frozen Mahi-Mahi fillets that are not expensive. You play it by ear and see what you can get for a good price.
Here is what you are going to need for this:
2 meaty white fish fillets such as Mahi-Mahi, Catfish or Cod
8 oz. coconut milk – or less
1 TBS sliced white onion
1 – 1/2 inch piece ginger – peeled and sliced thinly
1 TBS chopped tomato
1 TBS chopped scallion greens
1/2 tsp. salt
Place fish in a pan and add enough coconut milk to reach it half way. Add the onion and ginger. Bring the pot to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes – until fish is cooked through.
Add the tomato and scallion. Bring back to a simmer and cook for about 30 seconds. Remove from heat and serve.
Serve with boiled sweet potatoes and lime wedges. Enjoy!
