6. Fijian Coconut Fish with Tomato, Spinach And Rice

Poaching in coconut milk and aromatics like lemongrass is a lovely way of cooking fish. You can do chicken breast this way too. The sauce created is fresh and light, but full of flavour and with an unexpected but delicious flavour from the tomatoes.
