    Traditional Caymanian style fried fish


    • 1 lb fish fillets about 3/4 to 1 inch thick (mahi mahi, snapper or grouper)
    • 2 tbsp lime juice
    • 1 cup water
    • 1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
    • 1/2 cup sliced green or red bell peppers
    • 1/2 cup diced tomato
    • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
    • 1 tbsp Thai garlic pepper sauce (original recipe calls for ketchup)
    • 1/4 cup butter or margarine


    1. Marinate fillets in tbsp lime juice and water with salt and pepper for about 15 minutes
    2. Pat the fillets dry
    3. Heat 2 tbsp of the butter in a non-stick skillet over moderately high heat until the foam starts to subside
    4. Add the fish and saute, turning once until just cooked through.
    5. Only 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Overcooking can lead to dry fish.
    6. Remove fish from pan, leaving the juices from the fish, adding a little more butter as needed
    7. Saute the onion and bell pepper until soft
    8. Add tomato, worcestershire, pepper sauce and 1 tbsp lime juice and simmer for about 2 minutes until flavors are blended
    9. Put fish on plate and pour sauce
