Lime and Coconut Poached Fish

Lime and Coconut Poached Fish

Poaching is an easy and quick way to enjoy your favourite fish. This method of cooking keeps the fish moist and full of flavour. This dish serves 4-6 people so it’s best to be made for a lunch or dinner party with friends and family. 


  • 1 cup reduced-fat coconut milk
  • 1 long green chilli, finely sliced
  • 60ml lime juice
  • 6 kaffir lime leaves, finely shredded
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 200g firm white fish fillets
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander leaves
  • Steamed greens to serve


  • Place the coconut milk, chilli, juice, leaves and fish sauce in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 4 minutes.
  • Add the fish and cook for 3-4 minutes each side or until fish is tender.
  • To serve, divide the fish and the poaching liquid between serving plates and sprinkle with coriander.
  • Serve with steamed greens.
