Step 1

Prepare the grill, preferably a charcoal grill. Grill the whole fish until it is cooked (the flesh flakes easily with a fork).

Meanwhile add the coconut milk, onion, salt and chili pepper in a bowl.

When the fish is cooked, pour the coconut milk mixture over the fish to thoroughly soak it. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes to absorb the milk mixture.

Serve with cooked rice.
