Note: this is pickled, rather than cooked, fish - don't be
scared! We've made this many times and never had a problem;
just make sure you use fresh, chunky, fish and that the lime juice
covers it while it is left to stand.
Note: requires preparation in advance.
1 kg firm white fish (e.g. cod) cut into 2 cm squares
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 chilli, deseeded and sliced
the juice of 4 limes
1 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped
1 red onion, thinly sliced
salt and pepper
lettuce leaves, sweetcorn and sliced sweet potatoes for
Place the fish in a shallow dish and cover with the lime
juice, garlic, chilli, sliced onion and some salt and
Ensure that the lime juice covers all of the fish and place
it in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight.
If you intend to use the garnish then boil the sweetcorn
and the potatoes.
Serve the fish on top of the lettuce with the garnish.
