Mexican Night: Lime poached fish

Feel like something a bit different for dinner tonight?  We are so spoilt for fresh seafood with the fish market right in town and so I am always trying to come up with new recipes. This is pretty much poaching fish in a mexican cocktail! Yum.

Lime poached fish

2 large fish fillets (this was Blue Moki)
1/4 of a finely chopped onion
1/2 cup of lime juice 
(I used bottled juice as limes are so damn expensive here!)
1/2 t cayenne pepper
Dash of tequila!

In a pan place fish fillets in a single layer.

Mix together all ingredients, and pour over fish. Add enough water to just about cover the fillets. Slowly bring the water to a simmer. Let the fish cook through for approximately five minutes before flipping and allowing other side to cook through too. 

Serve with mexican rice and salsa.

Mexican Rice - Into my rice cooker goes:
1.5 cups of rice
1/4 of a finely chopped red onion
1 can of chopped tomatoes
2.5 cups of vegetable stock
1t crushed garlic
1/2 t cayenne pepper

Flick on to cook and wait. Stir regularly.


Two chopped tomatoes
Two chopped avocados
1/2 can of corn
1/4 of a finely chopped red onion
Juice of one lime
Mix together all ingredients. That is all. 

Delicious. This is unbelievably easy but looks and tastes quite impressive.  
My kind of cooking!! Enjoy xx
