Delicious, fresh, filling poached fish in coconut milk, cilantro, tomatoes and onions!
  • 1 lb of fish (Acadian red fish, tilapia, or any other mild fish will do)
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 2 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • The top ⅓ of a bunch of cilantro (about 1 cup, coarsely chopped or not at all!)
  • 6 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 lemon (juice)
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 8 oz can of coconut milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Marinate the fish for 1-2 hours in the lemon juice, minced garlic, and olive oil.
  2. After 1-2 hours, pour the marinade into a sautee pan and heat on medium-high heat.
  3. Sautee the sliced onions and tomatoes on medium high heat until the onions are soft, but not completely translucent.
  4. Add the coconut milk and bring to a boil. Quickly reduce to simmer and cook down for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the cilantro and stir together.
  6. Add the pieces of fish such that the fish is submerged in the sauce for 2-3 minutes.
  7. Plate and eat!
