Easy, healthy, yummy seafood recipe. I grew up eating a lot of seafood cooked in a many different ways. Cooking them with coconut is a favorite savory treat. You can make this as spicy as you want by adding green peppers like anaheim or jalapeno peppers. You can omit the vegetables or add more that you like. The coconut milk and seasonings are strong enough flavor to carry this dish. If I am feeling lazy, I even skip the saute step.
