Fish Kebabs with Lime and Coconut marinade

This is a fish recipe which combines the subtle flavours of firm white fish with the sweet and sour of lime and coconut marinade.


  • 450 g (l lb) Hoki or other firm white fish e.g. Cod, cut into chunks
  • 3 courgettes, cut into large chunks
  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 16 button mushrooms
  • 8 king prawns, to garnish
  • 15 g (1/2oz) margarine (or butter according to taste)
  • 1/2 small onion, peeled and grated

  • grated 2 limes, rind and juice
  • 175 ml (6 fl oz) water
  • 1 x 2.5 ml spoon (1/2 tsp) chilli sauce


Try to get "dressed" fish (i.e. without bones). Heat margarine (or butter) and saute onion, root ginger and garlic until soft. Add remaining ingredients and heat gently for 10 minutes, stirring continuously until coconut has dissolved. Allow to cool.Place the fish in the cooled liquid for approx 20 minutes. Then thread the kebab ingredients onto greased skewers and cook under preheated grill. Baste with marinade and turn frequently
