Based on a recipe from Hot & Spicy Cooking the Australian Way (North American edition). Did you know that the cheapest canned tuna is possibly the healthiest for you? This is because young tuna is used and it contains the least amount of mercury. Thick coconut milk comes from the first pressing of the desiccated coconut. I like this for something fast, different and tasty when I’m having a busy day. I serve this over cooked rice with lemon wedges.
