Cayman Style Fish
When you live on an island, you find yourself eating fish like its going out of style. I hear that’s a good thing because fish are really good for you. Well, that’s convenient because they taste really good too 🙂 Especially when they’re cooked ‘Cayman Style.’ I order this all over the island but I’ve never made it at home before…until now.

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