Tip: If you prefer to use natural coconut milk, the procedure is as follows: beat the coconut pulp (white part) with warm water in a blender and then pass it through a sieve or a clean cloth, extracting all the milk. For each cup of coconut pulp, use 1 cup of warm water.
Clean the fish into slices and season it with salt, 1 lemon, white pepper and crushed or chopped garlic.
Tip: An important detail to make a good fish stew is to give preference to fish that are firmer and still have skin, so that they do not fall apart during cooking.
In a common or clay pot, place some slices of onion and pepper (without the seeds).

Water the fish with coconut milk, olive oil and palm oil. Decorate with smoked dried shrimp, onion rings and remaining peppers.

Season with more salt, white pepper and lemon. Bring to the fire to cook with the pan half covered for 20-25 minutes at the most, from the moment it starts to boil.
