  • Dice the sweet potatoes into small, bite-size pieces and bake on flat tray in the oven for 20 minutes, until the edges are crunchy. 
  • Place the fish in a pot with the tinned coconut, creamed corn and vegetables. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.

Top Chef Tip 

If your children are fussy and refuse to eat vegetables, cook all vegetables until they are soft, then add the sauce ingredients and blend together until you get your preferred consistency before serving up over rice. Rice can also be substituted for cous-cous or quinoa!
