Measure and mix the ground spices in a bowl, then mix your chunky coley fillet cubes in the spice mixture. Leave in the fridge over night if possible, if not leave for 15 - 20 minutes to allow the flavours to penetrate.

Melt the butter in a casserole dish and then add the Coley and remaining spice mix and lightly fry for two minutes.

Add the fish stock, coconut, bay leaves and simmer for 4 minutes. Bring to boil and add the corn flour (mixed with a couple of teaspoons of cold water)

Remove the bay leaf and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

Simmer for a further two minutes and serve with rice.
