Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ tablespoon finely grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 container So Delicious Dairy Free Original Culinary Coconut Milk
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon red panang paste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tilapia fillets (or any white fish)

  1. Cook the garlic and ginger in the oil over medium-low heat. When it is golden in colour add all remaining ingredients, except the fish and brown rice. Stir and bring the liquids to a boil.
