My husband caught some snapper (deep sea) on the same day my brother bought us a bucket of limes. I had looked at this recipe and was dying to try it. I chilled the snapper for 2 hours in the lime juice which was enough. Added 1 red and 1 green chilli minced with the shallots, tomato and onion with 3 cups coconut milk, served in shell shaped bowls, garnished with shallot flowers. Served with a rocket, mango and pecan salad as well as a simple rice salad - this was delicious! Thank you Robert ...
