This is a recipe very close to my heart and comes from Fiji where I lived and worked a little while back for about a year and a half. It's actually pronounced ko-kon-dah, as in Fiji any word with a "d" in the middle is actually pronounced "nd". Such as the International airport town of "Nadi" is actually pronounced ""Nandi". Even though I'm not a huge fish lover, I grew to love this particular dish, featuring "lolo" which is coconut milk/cream....but almost always the lolo is freshly squeezed in the Islands. This is my Western supermarket version and thus uses canned coconut cream.



500gms fresh white fish fillet cut to 1-2cm cubes
Juice of 5 limes
1 can (270mls) good quality coconut cream
1 small tomato, deseeded and chopped
1 small green capsicum (pepper) deseeded and chopped
1 large spring onion stalk finely sliced
1/2 red onion chopped
2 large red chillies deseeded chopped (optional)
salt and pepper to taste


Pour lime juice over fish to fully immerse each piece in a bowl and cover and refrigerate for around 2 hours. Remove fish and drain excess lime juice. Add all other ingredients and carefully stir/mix. Place back in fridge for another 20-30 minutes. Serve immediately chilled in a bowl, with some crusty garlic bread, and maybe with some nice lettuce such as cos.

Please note this is one of the first videos I made, and whilst I'm not claiming my later ones are Steven Spielberg masterpieces...this one might make them look that way in comparison. Also...the pic above is from another time I made it, not from below video, but was made following the exact same recipe by myself.
