  • 50 g tamarind (soaked in 6 tbsp hot water)
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 750 g monkfish (cubed)
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 4 green chillies (finely chopped)
  • Coconut flour (for dusting)
  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 3 finger pinch cumin
  • 3 finger pinch chilli powder
  • Salt
  • 1 tbsp vinegar


  1. Strain the tamarind as much as possible. Discard tamarind and keep the water.
  2. Heat oil in a large pan. Dust fish on both side with coconut flour. Fry quickly on both sides and set aside. For me this is not more than a couple of minutes on both sides.
  3. Nwo fry onion until soft and golden.
  4. Add tamarind water, chillies, chilli powder, cumin, garlic and salt and cook for about 10 minutes.
  5. Add fish, any of its juices and the vinegar and simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
