In a medium bowl stir together 1 Tbsp. of the olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. Add fish cubes; toss to coat. Set aside. In a 3 quart saucepan heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, sweet pepper, garlic and jalapeno. Cook and stir 4 minutes until onion is tender but not brown. Stir in undrained tomatoes and coconut milk. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in shrimp, fish mixture and ½ cup cilantro. Return to boiling; reduce heat.

You can serve this recipe over rice. We threw some green cauliflower in to make it heartier.
