Fish in Creamy Coconut Sauce

“This is an AUTHENTIC Malay/Indonesian recipe and tastes absolutely beautiful with rice. Trust me! :) I got this recipe from hawkers in Malaysia--so it's a tad spicy. Chicken breasts may be used in place of fish. Note: This serves 4 with rice and a side of stir-fried vegetables.”
