Good grief Isabella!
Get on with your cooking…what do you do next..??
Ok ok… So once cooked …
Remove the fish slices ..
And dump right back in!

Of course the sprinkling of COCONUT OIL at the end …..Makes all the difference !
SEMI REFINED , so less hydrogenated ,so more safe!
As apposed to REFINED.. more hydrogenated but less aroma of coconut !
How about something to drink.. ?
Coming right up .. RECIPE no 2…

And your carnival drink is ready!
Yes I know Isabella…VIRGIN now means FRESH ,from YOUNG TENDER coconut!
For RECIPE no 3..
Take 2 cups fresh coconut water …
Stir in well the secret ingredient …1/2 – 3/4 tsp AGAR AGAR…
What the heck is AGAR -AGAR Isabella??
This is a vegetarian powder made from seaweeds which ‘SETS ‘ liquids .
Bring this mixture to a boil…….
Add a little sugar ..just to enhance the mild nutty flavour of the coconut..
Pour in a dish ..
Cool slightly ….before putting in fridge!
Will take just 5 mins to set!
