Grilled Chambo Fish – This is a superb recipe, which is in great abundance in Malawi, Africa. It is commonly served with Starch Staple Nsima and Ndiwo dishes, which are delicious dishes frequently served around Malawi.

"Don’t complicate cooking the fish. Melt a knob of butter in a pan over medium heat. Add some finely chopped garlic and lay in the fish skin side down. Add a splash of lemon juice and season. Grill to just before the fish starts to flake. If you want a sauce to go with the fish, best to have either something a little Asian like  Sweet Coconut and Soy Sauce.”

1 oz. olive oil
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. ground ginger
4 tsp. sugar
Small handful of raisins
8 oz. coconut milk
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
Lemon juice 

Add olive oil to a saucepan. Then add turmeric, ginger, sugar and raisins. Put on a low heat to dissolve the sugar and infuse the spices. Remove from the heat, add coconut milk and whisk rapidly. Add a tablespoon of soy sauce and a dash of lemon juice. If the sauce seems a little thin, thicken with a little roux.
