Coconut Poached Fish Instructions

In a large frying pan, combine coconut cream, lemon zest, and juice, sauce, sugar, Sambal Oelek and garlic. Bring to the boil, stirring.

Reduce heat to low and add fish. Cover and simmer gently, 8-10 minutes, until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Add spinach. Simmer for 1 minute.

Serve fish on a bed of rice. Drizzle with poaching liquid and top with green onion and sliced chili.

Wendy’s Kitchen Notes :

Sambal Oelek is a chili-based sauce. It is a staple in Malaysian and Thai cooking. Oelek means grinding. So, Sambal Oelek means ground chili sambal.

The main ingredients are ground chili peppers, shallots, garlic and shrimp paste.

Sambal Oelek is found in the Asian isle of the supermarket in a glass jar. Wendy loves it and uses it in all her cooking.
