Fish in Creamy Coconut Sauce

Fish in Creamy Coconut Sauce created by JustJanS

This is an AUTHENTIC Malay/Indonesian recipe and tastes absolutely beautiful with rice. Trust me! :) I got this recipe from hawkers in Malaysia--so it's a tad spicy. Chicken breasts may be used in place of fish. Note: This serves 4 with rice and a side of stir-fried vegetables.

    Fantastic thank you.. I made this for dinner tonight and although I made a few changeses, I stuck pretty well to your recipe. I had green chillies, so I used those plus a teaspoon of a hot chilli sambal. I used a red onion, 2 teaspoons of palm sugar and I garnished the dish (after photos) with chopped coriander. I used flathead "nuggets" which I just slipped into the sauce for the last two minutes. This was simple (as I think all fish recipes should be) delicious and will get made again.
