  • 3 tsp. of GOYA Coconut Water
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander.

  • 0.5 unit of red bell pepper cut into strips.
  • 1 tsp. Tomato paste.
  • 2 cans of Coconut milk

  1. Place the fish on a large plate. In a small bowl, mix 1 ½ tbsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. garlic, 1 tsp. of Adobo, cilantro and oregano. Pour the spice mixture over the fish and rub to completely coat both sides with the marinade; cover and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and bell peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables soften, 10 minutes. Add the rest of the 2 tsp. garlic, salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir tomato paste into skillet and cook 5 minutes. Add the coconut milk, bay leaf and bring the coconut mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until coconut mixture begins to thicken, about 10 minutes.
  3. In the preparation of the previous step add the reserved fish, covering it in the sauce. Cook, turning once, until fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, about 5 minutes. Gently transfer the fish to a plate with the help of a spatula, keep warm. Add the lemon juice, adobo and cilantro to meld the flavors in this creamy sauce for about 2 minutes. Place portions on plates with a little rice and enjoy.
