DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the salt, pepper and water together to make a brine. Add the fish pieces and soak for 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, chop the vegetables.
  • At the end of the brining, drain the fish and add the coconut milk, the chopped vegetables, the cilantro and lime juice. You could also add half a finely chopped jalapeño, if you like it spicy.
  • Now put it back in the fridge--it's traditionally served cold.
