Method

  1. Recipe by Almir Santos
  2. Place the fish in a baking dish, season and squeeze over the lemon juice. Pop it in the fridge and marinate for about 10 minutes.
  3. In a large frying pan, layer up the onion, tomatoes and peppers before finishing with the fish. Drizzle a little olive oil over everything and sprinkle on the coriander. Pop the lid on and cook over a medium heat for 15 minutes, until the veg is softened.
  4. Pour in the coconut cream and a splash of water, but don't be tempted to stir it. Pop the lid back on and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Sift in the paprika and cook, uncovered, for a further 15 minutes. Scatter over a little extra coriander and serve with rice on the side.
