BLAFF (CARIBBEAN LIME-POACHED FISH)
1 kg Fish fillets
1 L Water
1/2 cup Lime juice
Scallions, chopped — 4
2 Scotch bonnet, minced
4 cloves Garlic, chopped
1 tsp Salt
- Add the fish, 2 cups of the water and the remaining ingredients to a large non-reactive bowl. Cover and let the fish marinate in the fridge overnight.
- Remove the fish from the marinade and set aside. Add the marinade and the remaining 2 cups of water to a large pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for about 5 mins.
- Add the fish to the simmering broth and simmer for another 10 mins, or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily.
- Adjust seasoning to taste and serve in bowls with lime wedges. Goes well over Rice and with boiled Plantains as a side dish.
