Jules, I'm not sure if you've ever made this, but you should-it's sensational! Russ made it for dinner tonight using reef cod and emperor we caught. He only used one super juicy lime and peeled our fresh tomatoes (I hate cooked tomato peel). I would watch how juicy your limes are, as any more than we used (about 3 tablespoons I reckon) would have totally dominated and ruined a very special dish. We didn't have bitters, so I don't know what it would have added to a perfect dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together lime zest and juice, rum and thyme leaves. Gently toss fish in marinade and leave for up to 20 minutes.
  2. At the same time, heat oil in a wok (or non-stick pan) and gently sauté onion and garlic.
  3. Add tomatoes, mix well and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Then add sugar, bitters, seasonings, water, coriander and marinade. Mix, top with fish, cover and very gently cook for 5-6 mins until fish is just cooked.
  5. Remove fish and set aside. Taste sauce for seasoning and add more salt, bitters and/or lime juice if needed.
  6. To serve, place fish on each plate and top with vegies and sauce.
