Fish Recipes Coconut and chilli pan-fried halibut

Method

1. For the marinade, pound together all the ingredients for the marinade, apart from the fish, in a pestle and mortar. Be generous with the seasoning as it will be absorbed by the fish. Coat the fish in the marinade, place into a bowl and leave to marinade for at least half an hour.

2. To cook the fish, mix together the flour and the desiccated coconut in a bowl. Coat the fish in this mixture well.

3. Heat the oil in a large non stick pan. Add the fish to the pan and cook on a low heat without moving for four minutes, then turn over and cook on the other side for another 3-4 minutes, or until cooked through. Squeeze over some lemon juice and serve hot with the chopped salad with peanuts.
