Ingredients

    2 (1/2 lbs) halibut or any other fresh fish cut in medium size chunks

    1/4 cup La Fe Lime Juice

    Juice from 2 oranges

    4 garlic cloves crushed

    1 tsp La Fe Cumin Powder 

    1 tsp La Fe Sazon Achiote Powder 

    1 tsp ground coriander seeds

    2 tbs La Fe Vegetable Oil 

    1 medium sized onion diced or sliced

    2 bell peppers diced or sliced

    1 can diced tomatoes

    14 oz can of La Fe Coconut Milk 

    3 tbsp cilantro finely chopped

    La Fe Coconut Flakes 

    Salt to taste

Directions

  • STEP ONE

    Mix the La Fe lime juice, orange juice, crushed garlic, La Fe cumin, La Fe sazon, coriander powder and salt in a small bowl.

  • STEP TWO

    Marinate the fish chunks for at least an hour if possible.

  • STEP THREE

    Heat the La Fe vegetable oil to prepare a refrito or base for the sauce, add the onions, tomatoes, bell peppers and salt, cook for about 5 minutes on medium heat.

  • STEP FOUR

    Add the La Fe coconut milk to the refrito, mix it in well and cook for about 10 minutes. If you prefer a thicker sauce you can thicken the sauce by adding 1/2 tsp of tapioca starch or cornstarch.

  • STEP FIVE

    Add the fish fillets, with the marinade, cover partially and let simmer for about 15-20 minutes. The exact time will vary based on the thickness of the fish. You can also reduce the cooking time by increasing the heat if you want it ready faster.

  • STEP SIX

    Add some freshly grated or La Fe coconut flakes.
