Fijian - Kokoda

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

This recipe was taken from a South Pacific web site for the ZWT-7 tour of the South Pacific. This is a traditional Fijian fish dish that is prepared with mahi-mahi, a white flesh fish. It is a very simple dish to prepare, you will need to allow ample time for marinating. Please note that the cooking time is marinating time (6 - 10 hours).

This is the first time I've tried acid cooked fish and I was really pleased with the outcome. I started the marinating at 8 a.m. and had dinner at about 6:30. The fish tasted very good served on top of a mixed green salad. I simply love the healthy aspect and was glad that I had the mahi mahi in the freezer. Very serendipitous I'd say.
