  • ½ cup coconut milk

  • Jasmine rice, to serve


  • 1.

    Place the fish, onion and carrot into a large non-metallic bowl.

  • 2.

    Add the lemon juice so it just covers the fish, mix well and cover the bowl with cling wrap.

  • 3.

    Let it marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour or until the flesh is pale white in colour.

  • 4.

    Drain off the lemon juice and press the fish against the bowl until all the juices are extracted from the fish.

    Serves cold with the hot rice for a great contrast.
