1)  Clean the Tilapia and remove scales. Rub them gently with rock salt and rinse well. Cut a slit in the belly. Pat them dry.

2)  In a small bowl, mix the tomatoes, scallions and ginger root.  Sprinkle with some salt. Stuff the Tilapia with this mixture.

3)  Wrap the Tilapia with bok choy leaves.  Smack the white stems of the bok choy leaves with the back of your knife to flatten it out, for easy wrapping.

4)  In a sauce pan, place all ingredients except for the coconut cream. Place the fishes over this and then pour out the coconut’s second extraction. Place your pot over medium heat and allow to simmer until most of the coconut milk is gone. About 20 minutes with the lid half on.

5)  Pour the pure coconut milk and allow to boil once before turning off the heat.

6) Serve with steamed rice.

    We have Tilapia here in Trinidad. In fact I could try this recipe since the ingredients are available except the fish sauce. How does patis look like?

    I saw the yummy brownies on your blog. I tried to make a comment but the submit button didn’t appear. I tried several times, but failed.

    Patis or fish sauce is a brown salty liquid. You can look for it in Filipino or Thai stores. If it’s not available in your area, you can skip this one. 🙂

    Thank you so much for visiting. Hope to see you again soon. 🙂 Have a great week ahead.
