Serves 2

  • 2 fillets firm white fish (I have used flathead)

  • 1 orange (the juice)
  • 1 bunch coriander, shredded including root
  • 3 long red chillies/jalapeños, deseeded
  • 2 Birdseye chillies, deseeded
  • 1 red onion finely diced
  • 1 yellow capsicum, finely diced

  1. Submerge your finely diced onion, coriander root and chilli into cold icy water for 5 minutes. Rinse and drain then set aside.
  2. Finely ‘cube’ your fish, into small bite size pieces, once cut, rub in approx. 1 tablespoon of salt. Set aside for 3 minutes.
  3. Place your fish, along with onion mixture in a bowl. Squeeze 4-5 limes and orange over until coating the fish. Leave for 20-50 minutes.
  4. Once your fish has been essentially ‘cooking’ in the acidity, remove from juices. Gently toss the fish and onion mixture with the capsicum; some more shredded coriander, and I have used tarragon flowers to pretty things up.
  5. Serve with crisp lettuce cups or tortilla chips.
