Coconut sambal

  • 45g (1/2 cup) coarsely grated fresh coconut
  • 1 large fresh green chilli, deseeded, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon natural yоghurt
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger


  1. Combine the garlic, sugar, chilli powder, turmeric, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Add the snapper, prawns and calamari and stir to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1 hour to marinate.
  2. Meanwhile, to make the coconut sambal, combine the coconut, chilli, coriander, lemon juice, yoghurt and ginger in a bowl. Season with salt. Cover and place in the fridge to chill.
  3. Heat half the oil in a wok or large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add one-third of the snapper mixture and cook, turning, for 1-2 minutes or until browned. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate. Repeat, in 2 more batches, with remaining oil and snapper mixture, reserving excess marinade.
  4. Reduce heat to low. Add the onion, ginger, fresh chilli and reserved marinade and cook, stirring, for 10-15 minutes or until onion is soft. Stir in the coconut milk and stock. Increase heat to medium. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. Add the snapper mixture, reserving the calamari, to the pan and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes. Add the calamari and cook for 2 minutes or until cooked through. Stir in the lime juice. Transfer to a serving dish and top with coriander. Serve with the coconut sambal.
