Fijian fish salad

The weather is hot and summer is in full swing so why not try my fresh Fijian fish salad. It is the perfect recipe for a afternoon get together.


  • 900g saddletail snapper fish, skin off
  • 3/4 cup lime juice
  • 200ml coconut cream
  • 200g gold tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • 125g tiny cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 capsicum, sliced
  • Cheeks of 1 mango, diced
  • 2 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, finely sliced
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 lime


  1. Cut fish into small chunks. In a bowl, mix through the lime juice to marinate. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours stirring occasionally, until fish turns opaque.
  2. Add coconut cream, tomatoes, red and spring onion, cucumber, capsicum, mango, ginger and kaffir lime leaves and toss to combine. Refrigerate for another hour.
  3. Serve with lime wedges and chilli.
