Oh my god,oh my god oh my god....This recipe is DIVINE!!!! I cooked it for my partner as I love to experiment and I have recently given up eating meat, so I am looking for new and exciting recipes with fish... All i can say is that if I was served this dish in a restaurant I would be highly impressed, and probabaly back there at least twice a month for this fabulously tasty dish... and the best thing is that it's so simple to prepare! Thanks for sharing it with me,

Sooooo easy! And so tasty!

I did change a few things though, to make it a little healthier, and even simpler to cook.
I used a can of lite coconut milk instead of cream, and skipped the cilantro as I didn't have that fresh.
I added all the spices to a casserole dish, added the coconut milk, added the fish and made sure it was well coated. Covered with aluminium foil and baked in a hot oven for 10-15 mins.

I made enough to ensure there were left-overs and the spices just keep improving with time.

Very tasty fish recipe! We didn't find the spices overpowering at all. The only thing I'd change next time is to add another chili pepper. Yum! Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2009
