  • 1 can (28 oz) organic diced tomatoes (BPA-free can)
  • 1 organic green chile pepper, chopped
  • 1 1⁄2 lb of wild-caught white fish (grouper, mahimahi, flounder, and snapper all work well), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1⁄4 Tbsp organic ground red cayenne pepper (We use 1 Tbsp, but we like it hot!)
  • 1⁄4 cup fresh organic cilantro, chopped

  2. Cook the onion for several minutes, or until translucent.
  3. Add the garlic and bell pepper and cook for several minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes, chile pepper, fish, cayenne, and cilantro, and simmer gently until the fish begins to flake.
  5. Pour in the coconut milk and cook just until heated through; do not boil. 6. Add the lime juice and season with the salt and black pepper
