    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/>http://www.swahilidelicacies.com/samaki-wa-kupaka-grilled-fish-with-coconut-sauce/<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.

    Made this for PAC 2006. Wonderful and different way to serve up fish fillets. I loved the mix of coconut milk with the tomato and onion. I used small cherry tomatoes and added more lemon as I love the stuff! Thanks stormylee!
