food red cooking bell pepper

White fish in Coconut Gravy

  • 4 thick filet of white fish (without skin or bones best)
  • 1 can of coconut cream
  • 1 jalapeno diced (remove seeds and membranes to lower the heat of the pepper)  We like the red jalapenos for more heat.
  • 2 tbsp of real butter
  • 7 cloves of garlic diced
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • Fresh cilantro chopped with stems (about a handful)
  • 2 tablespoons of lime juice
  • 1 small onion sliced in rings (then slice the rings in half).
  • 6 whole green chilies roasted or canned in strips (you can buy canned, we hand roast hatch green chilies)

 

  1. In a large skillet melt your butter
  2. Stir in your cumin and garlic
  3. Add in your half rounds of onions
  4. When the onions are soft add in your jalapeno dices.
  5. Stir in your coconut cream both the liquid and the heavy cream.  Stir until the heavy cream is liquid as well.
  6. Add in your fish fillets
  7. Lay your green chili strips over top of the fish
  8. Spoon some of the coconut mixture over your fish and chilies
  9. Cover the skillet and turn heat on between low and medium.
  10. When you fish begins to flake add your cilantro to the top of the chilies and fish and “gravy”.
  11. Add your lime juice.
  12. On low cook another 3 to 5 minutes to meld the cilantro into the gravy.

Serve over Steamed Rice

Enjoy!
