      This recipe does not even come close to what Samaki wa kupaka really is. The dish looks wonderful but it is not samaki wa kupaka. And it is more commonly found in the coastal region of East Africa, my home. This is what it should look like:<br/><br/><br/><br/>I do not own this website neither am I affiliated with it in anyway.

      Used fresh mahi mahi. Had to leave out the green chilies this time as my guests wouldn't eat them but will use next time. Used fresh garlic and ginger. This was very good...but I love anything made with coconut milk. This is a keeper. Thanks stormylee.
