Sheeneagh’s main course recipe from week 4 of Come Dine With Me Australia.
NOTE. You can use a variety of seafood for this dish (less seafood for a starter...more seafood when serving as a main)
Cut the fish into bite size pieces and set aside (back in the fridge while preparing the meal)
Pound the shallots ginger garlic lemongrass and chilli in the pestle to a fine paste
Heat the olive oil in a wide saucepan over medium heat add the past and sweat until soft and fragrant (2 minutes approx)
Add the tomatoes and crab and cook 2 -3 minutes then the other seafood and the fish stock (enough to half cover the seafood) then reduce the heat to very low simmer, covered cook through (approx 7 minutes). Add the coconut cream then season to taste with the fish sauce lime juice and salt. Plate up immediately and scatter coriander on top. Serve with loads of crusty bread
